Question about LaCie Computers & Internet
My lacie disk is set to FAST mode, ik i try to change the mode by holding the front button and turning on my disc nothing happens. The front button doesn't make any clicking sound and looks like it is not straight in the middle. Is there any other way to change the mode or repair the button?
Not sure if this is the exact same issue, but I couldn't get the drive to mount with different connections, etc. The problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

You can enter the bios on bootup by pressing a special key to force your computer to go into BIOS mode. What key this is varies by computer, often it is F8, F10, sometines F11. Anyway, use the key for your computer, and change to boot modus to not first boot from USB.

I am sad to say that it's probable that this drive has failed. But if there is critical information on it, please unplug and discontinue use immediately.
You do stand a chance of recovering data if the drive has failed, but you lessen those chances as you continue to try to use it.
Definitely take this drive to a qualified repair outlet who can help with data recover if you need the information off of the drive.

It sounds like the RAID controller in the LAcie drive may have failed. When this happens generally the data on the drive is left intact but you will require a new casing for the drives and the help of a data recovery pro to get the files off before you can re-initialize the set. Unfortunately all the good free/cheap utilities work only on single drives so you will need the help of a pro with high level software and additional equipment to retrieve the files.
If you are in North America I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa service database for most US states. If you're outside North America, post your location and I will help you find an appropriate service.

try it on different usb ports on your system
try replacing the cable which connects the hard drive with the usb port
if this does not works the problem lies in the portable hard drive and i think it would be under warranty period so get it checked
