    Right, so I've been noticing that when I watch TV episodes off of this drive, over the last week, that occaisionally the video would stop, and after 5-6 seconds would jump that far forward, and audio would kick in (synced up with the then-current video) a second later. I didn't know what to make of it. The drive wasn't making any odd noises really.

    Today, suddenly, the video stopped. I couldn't access the drive at all. I tried using Disk Utility, but the drive wasn't really showing up.

    I got log entries like this in system.log

    I panicked; I need the data on that drive. The iTunes library is irrelevant, but my girlfriend has 4 years worth of photography stored on that drive... she'll be devastated if it's gone for good. (She's on a business trip right now, I hope I can fix this before she gets back...)

    I went online and there was some evidence that the issue might not be crashed hard drive(s) but rather either a bad power adapter or a messed up firewire/raid controller. I tried switching the power adapter from my UPS to a wall socket, and has some slightly better results... console.log was just as dismal, but I had better results with Disk Utility than I had had before.

    Code:

    Jan 28 20:51:03 Calvin kernel[0]: disk3s10: I/O error.
    
    Code:
    Verify and Repair disk “Indefatigable”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Invalid B-tree node size
    Volume check failed.
    
    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
    
    
    Disk Utility stopped repairing “Indefatigable” because the following error was encountered:
    
    The underlying task reported failure on exit
    1 HFS volume checked
    	1 volume could not be repaired because of an error
    
    
    Verifying volume “Indefatigable”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    
    Stopped by user
    (it had effectively timed-out)

    The key issue is, clearly the Disk Utility app is reaching the filesystem (isn't it?); on a raid drive, doesn't that mean the drives are ok? Also, it seems like the rebooting noise presages failure in whatever disk recovery operation is ongoing at the time.

    LaCie's support pages seem to suggest that a failed power adapter may be responsible - is this credible? Other webpages have cited a failed firewire controller within the drive... should this be the case, is there a straight-forward recovery mechanism, with two RAID-0ed drives?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Let me guess. No backup either?

    Try Disk Warrior. It has, for me atleast, managed to salvage some pretty munged up drives.

    *sigh* everything else, but the backup-to-dvd regime couldn't accomodate the photography (or the iTunes library, but meh), and we'd been planning to buy a second harddrive to mirror it with... but never did...
