    I recently got a 160gb lacie Porsche drive. It has not been working well at all. 60% of the time I unplug it or turn it off, then try to plug it back in or power it up I get a this volume cannot be read my Mac OS X message. It will not mount but will be seen by my computer. If I try to initialize it, I get an error type 20. Once or twice it has completely died and won't even give me the can't be read message. There is no mac OS X support software that came with it. The light on it is always orange when it is acting up and no combination of unplugging restarting and re-plugging it has yet to do any good. It seems to work with only one computer at a time as well. For example I will always get the error message with my iBook but if I plug it in to my power mac it may work or visa versa. Any ideas would be great.

    I would return it immediately before your return time runs out.

    If I remember correctly, there were some firmware updates to fix problems like this. Check the Lacie website for more info.
