Thread: LaCie problems...again!
07-20-2005, 09:01 AM #1LaCie problems...again! (Not anymore)
I'm having problems mounting my 250GB LaCie drive on my mini. Over the last month and a half it's gotten progressively worse. At first it mounted fine, then it wouldn't mont sometimes and now it won't at all. I tried using Disk Utility but the drive is no longer showing up in the side panel when I turn it on. I don't understand what's wrong because it works fine with my HP laptop. I just hope it's not a dud because I'd rather not deal with the hassle of returning and exchanging if possible. Any suggestions or remedies would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Have you tried using a different cable to connect to your system?Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

Is there anything else you can try hooking up to your firewire port? If the drive is working on other computers then perhaps your port is bad or failing.

Thanks for all of your help and suggestions.

Just got back from returning the drive. I wish I could've gotten it working properly because I unfortunately wasn't able to obtain about 10 GB of data.
On the positive side, the salesman convinced me to upgrade to the D2 Triple Interface model instead and knocked off £10 from the price. I only hope this drive is as sturdy as the casing is (it only weighs about 100 lbs).
