Unrecognized Lacie big disk

Posted: Monday, January 21st, 2008 by marcus

Scary moment tonight when I noticed the blue light on the front of my Lacie Big Disk was blinking in a very bizarre pattern. Upon reviewing the system it was connected to, I saw that the drive was no longer being recognized, but was showing up as a TUSB6250 Boot Device. Huh?

According to this FAQ on Lacie’s website, these symptoms can be the result of an "improper shutdown or un-mount."

To resolve the issue, do the following:

  1. Disconnect all cables connected to the drive.
  2. Connect the power cable to the drive.
  3. Connect the USB-cable. First to the drive. Then to the computer.

Happy to say that it worked for me! Now, to perform another back to my Windows Home Server…

    Hi! COuld you please let me know if someone else than we thought that Laice Big Disc was compatible with VISTA????
    And if so, have you got it to work? I have 2 issues with Lacie but still haven’t solved it.
    I just can’t belive it’s true. A totally new Disc not compatible with VISTA.
