Lacie Quadra V3 Not connecting to Mac
on Apr 23, 2013 at 9:12:57 am

Hi all,

I'm having trouble with a Lacie disk not showing up. It is a fairly new (~ 3 months) disk but now it has quit showing up when connected (via 800 Mb firewire) to any Mac in the house.

It does spool up, but does not mount. It does not show up in Disk Utility either.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to recover it?

I also wonder: I have transferred files by connecting a transfer disk (LaCie Rugged) directly into the Quadra. (The Mac Mini, with only one FireWire port, required this for direct transfer disk to disk).

Is this NOT recommended? Can it harm the disks?


See attached pics.






Kind Regards,

Johan

EDIT: Tested today with USB3 and the disk mounted! So good news there.. Ran a Disk Utility control and it said that the disk appeared to be fine.

However, it seems like the F/W ports are dead.. So my questions remain:

1. Is there a way to fix this?

2. What is the cause? Is it NOT recommended to connect LaCie Solid disks directly to a Quadra?

Kind Regards,

Johan
