Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive

When it eventually will, check the disk (all terms may vary, depending of your version of Windows) :
Right-click the icon of the disk, then click "properties".
In the "Properties" window, select the "Tools" tab, and click "Check now". Check both checkboxes, and run.
This should fix the access problems on your drive.

if it is a USB (or you have low disc space), it does take longer to show up on desktop and patience is required... on my iBook it takes over a minute for my Brick to show up... Whether it is USB or firewire, do try another cord (I had similar problem with my lacie firewire external... I used a different firewire cord and all was fine. If you have tried these already, I hope you find the answer... good luck

SOURCE: lacie d2 external drive
I support the comments of (fire sine) I have the d2 120gb Lacie and it was down for two years. I took it to my apple guys and they said that I needed to go to a data recovery service which would cost a gang of money. Come to find out, when I decided to update my internal hard drive on my Mac Pro, I had to buy a SATA, IDE, USB 2.0 adapter to back up the internal and transfer to the new internal. Long story short, something said, Hey try and open the Lacie and bypass the board in the enclosure and connect directly to the Western Digital drive inside. AND WHALA! I got my info, so all I need is a new enclosure.

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.

Contact Lacie support for a new power supply. I had the same problem, contacted Lacie support, they sent me a new power supply with power cord and all is well now.

Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
