Lacie 250GB Hard Disk is not being recognized by PC (Windows XP)

I have a Lacie 250GB Hard Disk. My PC uses Windows XP SP3 and it does not recognize the HD.
The thing is that the HD is working on another PC Windows XP and my USB port also works with whatever device you can connect in to that.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks.

    This Hard drive comes with an USB power cable. Even using this cable the HD does not work.
    I will try with the Hub latter...
    Thanks for trying.

Some PC's cannot deliver enough power to the USB devices to function properly through the USB port.
Does your Lacie hard disk have a power input connector if so conect a power adapter to it before you put it into your USB port.

Another alternative, get a powered USB hub connect it into your computer then connect the Lacie hard drive to the powered USB hub.

Is it possible to partion System drive.?

If your C drive take up all the 250GB, and the used data is not up to 250 GB( I means there are some free space on your c drive) you could use other partition software to release some free space ( resize partition) then create new partition, with the help of partition software, it could apply the operation without re install OS.

XP is a dead OS.
100% dead. and not supported now. by MS or HP.
but XP needs SP3, or USB will be bad
XP always had bad USB for years until , all patches were done.
The USB on XP are horrible.
you need good USB so all devices are PnP recognized
and negotiated currents (power) is working
and USB2 currents are weaker than USB 3.
and is key to making any motor driven HDD work right.!!

Formating hard disk

IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

Hello, I have a LaCie 250GB Hard Drive and it´s not being recognized by my PC. I have Windows XP SP3. What should I do?

All brand-new hard drives are sold unformatted and thus don't show up in Windows until they've gone through the formatting process. To get up and running, connect the drive, boot your PC, and at the Windows desktop right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage. Click Disk Management in the left-hand tree, and every drive connected to your system will show up. Simply right-click your new drive and select New Partition. Then follow the steps to get your drive up and running.

Lacie Hard drive not recognized

If your computer recognized the hard drive before you have installed your last operating sistem(s) that can be the problem. Your operating sistem or BIOS is not seeing your hard drive any more. Installing a new operating sistem is going to solve your problem but try another one, not the operating sistem you used until now.

To access Disk Management: Click Start>Run and type in DISKMGMT.MSC and click enter.

If it is detected there right click on it and select Partition and after partitioning the drive you can format by right clicking on it again.

Good Luck!
