Question about LaCie Computers & Internet
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.

Contact Lacie support for a new power supply. I had the same problem, contacted Lacie support, they sent me a new power supply with power cord and all is well now.

Do you have a CD disc software installer of your external hard drive (F.A. Porshe 160GB).? If you got it, you must reinstall it, so that your Imac can detect it. Otherwise, find it at the internet and download it.
The power failure could have damage some stored data about your External Hard Drive in your Imac. That's why, you have to reinstall it. Send us your e-mail comments for us.

SOURCE: When I turn on my
If the device doesn't show up in Mac System Profiler at all or as an unknown device:
The symptoms indicate there is a problem with the drive, how it is connected, or with the computer used for troubleshooting. The next best step is to change physical variables, and find a simpler problem than a broken product.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: lacie hard drive won't turn on
My 1TB Lacie suddenly won't power up (no sound, no blue light). It turned out that I might have worn out the on/off switch over the seldom-use 4 years of usage. I push and flip the switch multiple times, and the Lacie came back to live and mount normally. I will just leave it at the On setting and simply pull the power cord when i want to switch it off.
Obviously, Lacie failed to do QA on the on/off switch because my 4 years usage did not totalled to more than 10 on/off per month.
