Question about LaCie d2 Extreme 250GB External with Triple Interface USB 2.0/Firewire 400/800 - 300790U ... Hard Drive
I bought this hard drive 1 year ago. lacie 1tb it was running brilliantly no probs. i have a mac 20 and i hooked the hard drive up to quicktime. when i first turn on the hard drive from power it loads up no probs however when it goes into standby mode and i try to work the hard drive again it makes funny noises that it never made before and sometimes freezes my whole cpu. it cannot be a virus since macs do not get viruses and it is as new since i have taken care of her to perfection. i have about 700gb of important info on the hard drive i cannot afford to lose if i send it off to a tech so please advise.
As a precaution, backup your data to another machine, in case the external drive is developing problems which would get worse and essentially "lose" your data. Does it do this on other machines other than yours? If so, it is developing problems, which, as said, could be deadly to data. If it doesn't foul up on other machines, then something is afoul with something on your machine. Various problems are reported with sleep mode wakeup. Could you disable the sleep mode function? You might see if there is an O/S update for your Mac which addresses this problem (waking up the USB ports & connected devices).
