LaCie can have some add on application that is incompatible. The way I fixed this last time was to delete all the partitions on said drive, create a new partition and format it. This took about 2 minutes since I used the quick format.
Sorry, no. I don't have any other quick fix.
Hope someone can give me a hand. I have a Lacie Rugged 500gb drive that works everywhere but on my new Dell laptop on Win 8 with USB3 ports. The darn thing doesn't want to play nice. It is detected as a storage device but not accessible in any way. I have talked to Dell, Lacie and Microsoft about this and keep getting nothing.
Works in win xp, 7, vista and OSX.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
