Now if can just get those Mac people to give me my money back My first google on the subject was “lacie big disk extreme sucks” realizing later mine was not ‘extreme’. Unfortunately after about an hour of all the lights flashing blue, I gave up. The drive has 32Mb of cache and a rotation speed of rpm. Now I can move on to worrying about how I should really back up my back up Did a little research and found this post. I tried unplugging and plugging the power and every time I tried, I’d get different results.

LaCie Bigger Disk Extreme – hard drive – 1 TB – FireWire / FireWire Overview – CNET

I power cycled and I have cured the Lacie PSU problem. After my 1TB Lacie Big Disk no longer booted giving me only a flashing blue light and hissing sound coming from the PSU, I did a bit of web research and came across this site. Thanks for posting this. The drive would also emit a loud hissing noise while running. My G began to have some problems to start up as if the disk couldn’t start spinning, same symptoms you describe. I made a work around until LaCie sends me back new power packs.

Whether the goal is super speed or complete. My LaCie G is starting to get startup problems. A while back, the power supply on my 1TB Lacie went poop. It was recognized with a message to initialize it.
