SOURCE: LaCie 500 GB hard Drive - does not register on my desktop

if it is a USB (or you have low disc space), it does take longer to show up on desktop and patience is required... on my iBook it takes over a minute for my Brick to show up... Whether it is USB or firewire, do try another cord (I had similar problem with my lacie firewire external... I used a different firewire cord and all was fine. If you have tried these already, I hope you find the answer... good luck

SOURCE: Lacie extern. hard drive is recognized, but I can't access files

Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

SOURCE: Macintosh computer not recognizing the LaCie external hard drive

First thing to check is whether the Mac recognises the LaCie hardware. Go to the Apple icon, and select 'About this Mac/Computer' then more info, which will launch System Profiler, check the FireWire section under Hardware to see if your drive is listed. Assuming it is, and that the Disk Utility program doesn't see the drive, then you'll need a Disk analysis program like 'Drive Genius' or a recovery program like 'Disk Warrior'
Should your drive not be seen under the FireWire section, you have an interface failure on the LaCie, which isn't terminal, you'll just need to put the drive in another HD case and then read the data. Reply to this and I'll try and give more help depending on the results you get in System Profiler.

SOURCE: I have 2 lacie external hard drives that no longer

Chances are, the IDE/SATA to USB/Firewire controller inside the device has died. You can take the case apart and take the hard drive out, and plug it directly into a computer through IDE or SATA, whichever it is. If the drive is recognized, then all you need is another external case to put the drive into. If it isn't recognized then most likely the powerboard on the hard drive or some other internal mechanical part is dead, and you would need professional data recovery to get anything off of it that you would want.

SOURCE: lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised

I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

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.

No external drive icon on desk top

This happened to me as well - i have been reading that it could be the power supply adaptor. If you can try another one - it might solve the problem. The adaptors seem to either be faulty or made to stop working. Great news for us the consumer!!

What power supply does Lacie 160GB external hard drive use?

Although not sold at Best Buy™, there are available adapters/cables to make this transfer possible. I recommend using a search engine to find "firewire to usb." Hopefully this will give you the results you need.

Having Problem with both LaCie hard drives being recognized on both macs

Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.

I think I fried my LACIE 500gb drive

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.
