Question about LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

The blue "ON' button on my 160 GB LaCie hard drive just does a fast blink when I turn it on. It doesn't make any noise as it typically does, just silent and fast blinking. I've tried unplugging the unit hoping it was a reset issue but no luck.. Does anyone know what this means? Thanks

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

hi.
maybe problem is caused by your Power supply.
so i recommend you to do these:
1- remove the main hard drive and only connect "250GB lacie porsche hard drive".
and see is it recognized or not.
2- go to the bios (with pressing "delete key" at start of turning on) and navigate to power center.
then enable power saving mode.

Chances are the drive is bad. Try taking it to another computer- if it doesn't work there, then the prognosis is poor. Data recovery services are available, but pricey.
