I bought an 1TB Lacie SAFE (by mistake) not realising what the SAFE designation meant - its a biometric drive (use fingerprint to open it) .
Its been nothing but trouble since I got it - recently it suffered a hardware crash so I lost all my date & Lacie put a new drive in but it worse than ever - seems to work ok but then suddenly I get: disk needs initialsing etc and all my data has gone again.
It also randomly mounts & dismouts; sometimes it mounts, I open it with my fingerprint - but the icon does not appear on the desktop!
Ive already had the power supply replaced.
It loooks to me as if its not compatible with an imac - my lacie D2 quadra spins down fine when the imac shuts down - this stays running.
Ive wasted hours putting data back on only for it to vanish without warning!
Has anyone esle had similar problems?
I am thinking of just junking the drive even though its still under the manufacturers 3 year warranty.
