Question about LaCie Computers & Internet
I can see the d2 using Disk Utility in the Mac's Applications but it says there's no media loaded when there is. Is this a hardware problem with the d2 itself or a communication problem between the Mac and the writer?
SOURCE: lacie d2 external drive
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.

You need to make sure the drive is formatted for the PC. The Mac will read and write to a FAT32 partition, but the PC cannot see a Mac formatted drive as you have seen.
The only problem is that there is a 32Gb limit per partition for FAT32 drives.
It's not ideal but it's the best you can do easily.
