Is it still under warranty? If it is, call LaCie and ask for a RMA - that drive is about to fail. Remove everything from it by copying to another drive as soon as you can. I don't know if you'll be successful in getting everything backed up before the drive overheats completely and shuts down for good.

The overheating could be caused by a defective component on the controller board. Possibly the drive input power supply.

Regards.
