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,
