Question about LaCie (300740) 160 GB Hard Drive
I plugged a in a non Lacie power supply into the drive accidentaly. I only realized it when I wouldn't show up on my desktop. When I then pluged in the real power supply the drive would still not show up. I took it to the office and it failed to show up on any of the computers. Lacie won't fix the drive because it's obsolete. is there anything I can do to fix it, other than plunk down $600 buck for a new drive and have a data recovery done on it.
Power from outlet shows getting as far as the transformer part of the electrical LaCie unit. However, I cannot get the unit to turn on. It is a 160GB LaCie HD purchased 3 years ago.

Sadly if you fried the drive with that PSU cord it would be pretty hard for a home repair. If you know its definatly dead, I would just remove the drive from the external unit and try to connect it internally to a computer. If the adaptor is different you could buy a cheapy online somewhere.
