Lacie d2 Quadra Ejects Itself

I copy large photo files (900 gb) from another drive to the d2. I leave work to allow the drives to copy over night. In the morning the d2 has ejected itself and I get the scolding message about not ejecting the drive properly. I reboot and the drive shows up with all of the files. Note: At times the blue button cycles on and off about every 25 Seconds. I am using the Firewire 800 port. Mac Pro 2.8 GHz Quad- Core. 8nGB memory. Mac OSX 10.7.5 I have used the LaCie Setup Assistant and have reformatted the drive multiple times.

I've had issues with the lacie mini power supply before. I can cause some wierd issues. Unfortunately, it isn't the cheapest thing to replace but that's probably the best place to look first.

SOURCE: LaCie d2 Quadra drive... not showing up on PC after working on a MAC

You need to make sure the drive is formatted for the PC. The Mac will read and write to a FAT32 partition, but the PC cannot see a Mac formatted drive as you have seen.

The only problem is that there is a 32Gb limit per partition for FAT32 drives.

It's not ideal but it's the best you can do easily.

Microsoft has had some issues in regard to external devices (especially after running some updates). There is a registry patch for this situation. Click below to install the patch. It should fix your external drive problem. All the best!

SOURCE: Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

the problem is that your lacie drive operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) under USB which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple mac is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac if you wish to use it via the USB connection.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-

download and install the software then restart your mac.

It assumes USB type connection but I have also had firewire and e-sata issues with the cables supplied so tend to buy the ones that have the lock on them as these tend to be a little better

Drive not showing up on my desktop

i'm not sure i can solve this problem--which started for me tonight as well with my lacie d2 quadra 500 gb--but i can share a possible explanation i've found online: apparently, they have lots of problems with their power supplies. see if the power adapter (the black brick) is making a hissing sound, or if there is a ticking sound coming from the drive itself. i have both these sounds. i am hoping all my data is safe and that my i.t dept. will be able to fix it with a new power supply on monday.

How to format the LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra for Windows XP??

This way it should work...
Connect your drive to the computer...
Go to: Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer management.
A new window will appear...
Select Storage > Disk management on the left of the window.
Now you will see the different drives that are connected or part of your system.
One of the drives listed there is your LaCie, i think you'll recognize it by name...
Right-click on it, and select 'format'
In the new window, select the new volume label (as you like it), the file system (use NTFS), and set allocation unit size to default.
Make sure 'Perform a quick format' is not checked...

Then click OK. Your drive will be formatted now... Don't interrupt the process

Installed on MAC, then Plugged it to PC, now MAC won't recognize Drive

look into Disk Warrior...its a hundred bucks, but it is a miracle worker of sorts and might fix everything for you.
the frustrating thing about DW besides its $100, is it takes less than a minute to fix problems I would fret over for weeks
