Question about LaCie d2 Extreme (300793U) 500 GB Hard Drive
I am plugging my d2 in for the first time, and it appears as if it is working properly in device manager, but does not show up in My Computer, and thereby is inaccessible. What do I do?
It could be that the drive is not formatted or initialized! Try this, right click on My Computer then click on Manage. Go to Disk management in the left pane. You should see all your disks that are installed in the right pane, it should show you their status. Actually if it is a new unformatted disk it should bring up the "Initialize Disk" window. If it does, follow the steps. If not look for a disk that is fully black (black means unallocated)then right click on the disk and Create a partition. The create partition wizard allows you to format the disk afterwards. If you plan to use the disk on some windows 98/ME machines you need to create a FAT32 Partition(FAT32 partition can't be larger than 20GB(20480MB) if not just format it NTFS(performs better and more reliable). Hopes this helps.
