Question about LaCie d2 (300769) 200 GB Hard Drive
My lacie de external drive won't mount - i can't see an icon on the desktop. Using Mac G4 running OS9.2.2 system. Can you help?
I support the comments of (fire sine) I have the d2 120gb Lacie and it was down for two years. I took it to my apple guys and they said that I needed to go to a data recovery service which would cost a gang of money. Come to find out, when I decided to update my internal hard drive on my Mac Pro, I had to buy a SATA, IDE, USB 2.0 adapter to back up the internal and transfer to the new internal. Long story short, something said, Hey try and open the Lacie and bypass the board in the enclosure and connect directly to the Western Digital drive inside. AND WHALA! I got my info, so all I need is a new enclosure.

What are your recommended enclosure options for the d2?

Have these drives ever mounted in the OS environment? I take it youre an audio producer, with a load full of expensive plug ins, being the reason youre still utilizing OS 9 after 7 years...... Lacie D2 drives in my experience are infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a blue light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure. Hope this helps.
