your fix worked like a charm. Thank you so much. I unplugged all of the cables and inserted the power first and then the USB (back of drive first and them to the computer) and I was able to get my machine to recognize my Lacie drive. thanks again - this was a life saver

Thank Ghu! I tried to move a couple of these drives to my new Vista box and first got this problem with both of them. Then one of them 'mysteriously' started working. Gave up and tried to move them back to the XP system they were on originally and got the same problem! Was just about to the point of trying to figure out how to take them apart to move drives from one to the other to recover data.

Thanks much!

Thanks for the cable sequence. I have restarted the computer and the hard drive several times but did not disconnect the cables. Funny this is I used this same harddrive for three days last week without any problems. It seems I have problems after getting any updates.

Thanks, again. Anna:)
