Hi all, I bought a Lacie 320GB external hard drive about a year and a half ago. No problems, and it worked great with my macbook. A couple weeks ago I kept trying to add new files and they wouldn't copy, which was really frustrating, until I realized that the drive was completely full (I only really use it for movies, which I know are big files, but I really didn't expect it to fill up so fast). I deleted a few files to give it a little breathing room, but then when I went to play some of the movies, they skipped. Some of them skip so badly that they are unwatchable. Some, on the other hand, play completely normally. Also, a few times when I went to plug in the drive, my comp wouldn't even recognize it. I stopped using it for a few days, and now the comp recognizes it right away, but many of the movies still skip and, with some, the movie just stops playing. I don't know if this has anything to do with me trying to copy files to it when it was full, or if it's unrelated, but I totally baby the device (never been dropped, always kept in it's case, barely ever even move it), so I'm really struggling with the concept of something physically being broken. I've tried using a firewire cable instead of the attached usb connector, and I've tried connecting the drive to a different comp. Same results. Anyway, does anyone know of a way to try to repair the drive without erasing all the files? Or have any idea about what could be happening? If there is a way to repair the drive, but it includes wiping it clean, I'm also interested. It would take a lot of time, but I could eventually get all the files back-- I'm more interested in fixing a drive that I paid like $150 for.
