Opening USB-connected disk drive

Hello again. . .

I have a LaCie external disk drive, from which I need to move some files to my Powerbook (into Office/Word). The first time I plugged it in with a disk in place, it automatically opened a menu on my screen. Now it won't. The device's green light comes on and the disk drive spools up, but nothing happens on my computer. How do I turn on or access the disk drive from the computer to tell it what to do? Thanks very much for any advice.

Apparently it was a bad disk that just coincidentally worked once. Other disks are working fine. Sorry for the wasted space.
