SOURCE: hard disk replacement for lacie ethernet disk mini 250 gb

I managed to fix mine with a little bit of work.
This website has a readme file that specifies the partitions. You must be using Linux.

http://gpl.nas-central.org/LACIE/ethernet_disk_mini_v2_-_ethernet_big_disk/EDmini_v2_partition_images/Readme

1. Plug the drive in a Linux computer, or use a Linux Live disk.
2. Create all the partitions according to the readme file. Use extended partition for the first "container". Linux Swap for the second partition. Use Ext3 format for the remaining.
3. Extract all the SDA6-8 files with bzip.
4. Use "dd" command to write those images to partitions sda6 - sda8 which you just created with this command: dd if=/dev/home/ubuntu/sda6 of=/dev/sda6 bs=512
5. Substitude /home/ubuntu above for the location where you placed the image files.
6. Once all 3 images have been written, the drive should be good to go. Put it back in the edmini, start it up and see if the website comes up. You may have the "format" the drive from the admin utility once its up and going.

Hope this helps.

use the "dd" command in

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

I formatted the hard drive connecting it directly to the computer (using Windows XP). Then when i reassemble the Ethernet Big Disk, it turned on but it doesn't do anything. My question is: Is the...


Hello,
the OS of the Ethernet Big disk is on the hard drives, so you did erase them. This unit should only be formatted using the administration page drive format option.
LaCie usually does not give away the OS, so your option would be to close some other Ethernet Big Disk or Ethernet Disk Mini drives unto your now formatted drives.

Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.


I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

Lost Connection


Most problems I have had with Lacie NAS have been due to duff power supplies. Seems odd that it should make a difference but it does: the power supply seems to make hte connection hang which  you then can't reset just by turning off hte power.

Hard drive won't start up at all


Knowing LaCie the drive might need to be connected to a computer, or need a new battery.  If it is not the battery, try connecting the drive to your computer via ethernet or USB  and you might be able to get the data off of it
