Please explain what you mean? When you plug in the drive it recognizes the drive but the size is showing to be extremely small?

Please let me know so I can help further.

Thanks!

SOURCE: Storage capacity only shows 9.99

It is possible that the disk space is not partitioned or the drive has crashed there by making the partition unreadable. Formatting the disc should resolve this problem. Just connect it to your computer and use this tool to format it.

Install it, launch the software, click on your external hard drive, click on the raw space on the drive, and click create partition. Choose the file system NTFS and click save changes. It will format it and you should be able to use your drive again. If you have any further questions please let me know, before you give me a bad rating, so that I can help you fix it.

I had 4 LaCie 2TB Big Disk Quadra, Item 301343U. They are connected to a Nitro 8-PORT FIREWIRE 800/1394B PROFESSIONAL (N8PFW8HR) hub. The hub is connected to a LaCie Firewire 800 PCI card. I am running...


Let's not take this as a solution so much as an intuition. I believe you may have run up against a limit of physical disk space that XP can administrate.

DO me a favor and don't give my rating a thrashing if I'm wrong.

Best Regards,

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.

LaCie d2 Quadra drive... not showing up on PC after working on a MAC


You need to make sure the drive is formatted for the PC. The Mac will read and write to a FAT32 partition, but the PC cannot see a Mac formatted drive as you have seen.

The only problem is that there is a 32Gb limit per partition for FAT32 drives.

It's not ideal but it's the best you can do easily.
