LaCie d2 Quadra is inert: service/repair or buy new one?

Hi
I have a LaCie D2 Quadra that i use to back up my new imac (running snow leopard) that I bought 3 months ago. Been fine so far, backing it up on time machine, but today I noticed that on July 1st it stopped working (e.g. time machine indicates this as the last time it was backed up). I tried rebooting, switching it on an off but the LaCie is inert (I can't see the icon on my desktop, and time machine tells me it's not connected. I have no power light on the LaCie, even though the power cable has a green light flashing on it.
Is it dead and the HD has crashed? Is it worth getting serviced or just buying a new one?
Thanks,
Simon

Check with LaCie's support site at http://www.lacie.com/us/support/ and it's a good idea that you write down the serial number of your external disk.

Blu light flashing


This is most probably a faulty power cable, a common fault on La Cie apparently. Another cable got my disk working fine!

Drive not showing up on my desktop


i'm not sure i can solve this problem--which started for me tonight as well with my lacie d2 quadra 500 gb--but i can share a possible explanation i've found online: apparently, they have lots of problems with their power supplies. see if the power adapter (the black brick) is making a hissing sound, or if there is a ticking sound coming from the drive itself. i have both these sounds. i am hoping all my data is safe and that my i.t dept. will be able to fix it with a new power supply on monday.

How to format the LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra for Windows XP??


This way it should work...
Connect your drive to the computer...
Go to: Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer management.
A new window will appear...
Select Storage > Disk management on the left of the window.
Now you will see the different drives that are connected or part of your system.
One of the drives listed there is your LaCie, i think you'll recognize it by name...
Right-click on it, and select 'format'
In the new window, select the new volume label (as you like it), the file system (use NTFS), and set allocation unit size to default.
Make sure 'Perform a quick format' is not checked...

Then click OK. Your drive will be formatted now... Don't interrupt the process
