SOURCE: daisy chain my external hard-drives

I don't think these drives are designed to be daisy chained. This worked for SCSI drives, but not for USB drives.

SOURCE: Lacie 1TB external hd won't mount!

check wires connecting them together first, ok?

then, turn off the LaCie, connect to your MacPro, and then turn on the drive..

that should show as a mounted drive.

SOURCE: XP doesn't recognize 500GB external Lacie after almost 2 years

try it on different usb ports on your system
try replacing the cable which connects the hard drive with the usb port
if this does not works the problem lies in the portable hard drive and i think it would be under warranty period so get it checked

SOURCE: my lacie hard disk 1tb all of a sudden isnt

Just contact www.lacie.com great support. their answer for my drive was to reboot the drive. For me it worked.


Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:

  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

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

I have protools7 that wont load after I installed porsche design lacie 500gb hardrive


USB 2.0 is extremely slow for the purpose of doing direct recording. External drives are best used for backup after a project is done.

Drive light is flashing. Drive barely works but is very, very slow. Managed to get two folders transferred but it;ll take days to transfer my music. I don't want to even think about my movies. Why...


my opinion is, better to backup your files while you can still access the drive. Then try to format your external drive.
Just a suggestion. Hope it helps thanks.

1tb LaCie drive turns itself off and on randomly


It probably is about to "die" -- copy all the files from it to your computer, before it does completely quit.

Then, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

Or, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, buy a new, compatible disk-drive, install into the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

My computer is not recognizing my LaCie external hardrive


First cehck whether your computer is able to recoznize other USB storage devices or not. If you see that it is not recoznizing other USB storage devices. Then you need go to your Boot Up screen, the screen that opens when you restart your PC.

Then go to the USB section and enable USB drive.

If this also does not resolve your problem, then try installing USB drivers on your PC, You can install them from the website : http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/usb2-driver.html

I hope this resolves your problem.

HELP MY HARD DRIVE HAS GONE!


Ok to understand this , you dropped a 1 TB hard-drive external hard drive on the floor? Well considering that it is a external, the cases in most externals are meant to take a beating as well as the hard-drive it self. There is two possiblities I can think of, what could of happened. When the Hard-Drive hit the floor, it could of is disconnected the connection on the hard-drive itself inside the casing, which you will have to pop it open and reseat it. Or the hardrive, arm inside the hard-drive it self snapped or is misplaced, which is unrepairable. Open up the casing and looking for the hardrive it self. Towards the back of the hard-drive is where the connection of th drive is, it is eather sata or orginal set up with his pins based. Take the connection off and put it back on and see if that works, if it didnt, best advise would be is take in in and have the drive tested, see if its still operable.

Itunes messed up my external hardrive


I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.

iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.

Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.

Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.


If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).

Hello i plug my lacie 1tb external hard drive into my ps3 and it does not get regconise but when i plug it into my pc it works perfectly


ps3 is designed to take certain drive formats. I'm no sure which ones but you could test. Just back up all the files and reformat it with FAT32, FAT...and if it doesn't work just restore the files because gaming consoles were never designed to take externals used by computers.

My Lacie driver is no longer acessable


you could send me it lol :)

When you say it gives you a blank window did you leave it for a while - I have to do that with my 500gb hard drive which has a lot of stuff on it and it takes a while to read what it needs to before it shows the files / folders

maybe a defrag if you can get it back up and running and also try it on a different usb port on the back of the same computer it was working on
