    Hi Everyone again lol
    Bad news my 80 gig Lacie external HD won't mount on my desktop?
    First aid won't even recognize it! I had it turned off during the entire installation.

    Any help would be great it had all my data on it from the past 4 years!

    J

    K - Solved it thanks to searching in the forum Thanks
    All I had 2 do was unplug everything from the wall and plug it back in and it solved the problem *WHEW*

    hmmm

    try this

    Please shutdown and disconnect your drives. You need to now reset the FireWire ports on your computer.

    In short:
    - after shutting down your computer and disconnecting the drives, then
    - unplug all AC power cords

    - let computer and drives sit unpowered and unconnected for 15 minutes

    - reconnect AC to only computer; restart

    - reconnect AC power to drive, turn drive on manually, and after drive has spun up, reconnect the FireWire connection

    Drive should now mount,

    Report back with your finding,
