Lacie 160 gb hard drive problem

Recently my lacie external 160 gb hard drive was plugged up by usb 2.0 to a friends cpu. i hit the eject button but it said it was busy and i pulled out the usb not thinking. Now when I plug up my external hard drive on my computer or my laptop it doesnt show up. I started playing around with my device drivers on my cpu and it popped up but then failed to load. is there a way to solve this problem. can i download software?

    My LaCie 160 GB external HD, icon failed to appear on my HD when I turned on computer one morning. It had been operating the previous day. It also disappeared from my ALL Program LIst. The light was lit on the unit which became warm. I tried disconnecting the power unit in my computer for five minutes, which was offered as a possible solution , It did not heldp. Another solution offered was to change the housing of the computer HD. but I do not think the cause likes there, as I have two computers and neither recognizes it . [email protected]

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.

Cannot turn on


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X


you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


if you can see your usb but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,



if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts


if this fails to fix the problem

I was reformatting my Lacie rugged on my Mac unfortunately it was knocked off the table and fell approx 1/2 metre pulling the USB cable out, now doesn't even fire up, is this common


Usually stuff like this does not like to be hit on the floor. I'll advice that try 2 loose it and see why it is not firing up, you might be lucky to find the problem, or maybe you leave it for some time, it might come up the next time you plug it.

Take care

How can I open a LaCie B350 External Hard Drive?


You can carefully pry the bottom off with a screwdriver and remove the drive.  No problem using a "USB to IDE/SATA cable" ( Here's the first hit on Google: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232002  Worth $20. ) to copy off your data.  Or you could mount in your desktop PC.

First time trying and i cannot access my data. This is the first time I tried to pull it up.


USB is very finnicky. Shut off your computer and external drive. Unplug the USB cord from one end (which ever is easiest). Turn on your computer. When windows is up, plug in USB cable. Turn on USB drive. Windows should recognize the USB ox and drive and attach the extra drives. But, you must have windows millenium or newer. Or you will need USB drivers for the external USB box.

Dead hard drive


Try unplugging the usb connector and plugging it back in. Your pc shouls recognize the installed component automatically. Also, some external hard drives work like normal pc's do: hold the power button in longer until something happens. Hope this helps.

LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB not showing on MacBook Pro


The first thing that I would do is try connecting the drive to different USB Ports. If that does not work see if there is any software that came with the drive or that you can download from the internet that you might need to get the drive working. Next I would connect it to a different computer to see if it works that way. If it works when connected to a different computer I would at least get the files on to that computer and transfer them to the computer that you need them on using a network connection, a CD/DVD, or a USB thumb drive.
