Hi,

Thats usually a corrupted file system issue. You can try to recover it with software like Data Rescue 3 or Disk Warrior, but your best shot may be to just re-partition the drive in Disk Utility and restore your data from your backups. Please call us or send us a ticket if you would like to talk about this in more detail with our technicians. 503-844-4500 (USA) or www.lacie.com/mystuff
