MacBook Pro :: Retina Not Recognizing Lacie External Hd

I have a mbp with retina display and is not reading my rugged lacie external hd connected via the 2 usb ports. The lacie model that I have is the 500 gb one with the 2 firewire ports and one usb. When you connect it via usb you have to plug use 2 ports one for power the other for info. I'm trying that in the mbp retina and is not recognizing it. It doesnīt appear in the disk utility nor in the system info under the usb ports.

MacBook Pro :: Using Retina With External Display?
Currently I have a MBP 15" and use it on a daily basis with both the built-in display and an external 20" (1680x1050) display. I'm getting a new MBP retina and don't know how OS X is going to manage two displays with such a big difference in dots per inch. Will the "retina-ready" apps look just fine on the retina and enormous on the external?

MacBook Pro :: How Do Softwares That Aren't Retina Compatible Look On Retina Display
How do software that aren't retina compatible yet look on the MBP Retina Display? From my own experience as a developer when using regular sized images and resolutions on the iPhone 4, they come out as blurry. I was thinking perhaps the same thing will occur if the software isn't retina compatible? I e 2x in GUI size and scaled down?

MacBook Pro :: How Many External Displays Does The Retina Support
How many external displays dose the Retina MBP support? I have herd conflicting information about this, an apple store employee told me that it could support 2 thunderbolt displays while simultaneously running a HDMI connected display (witch would be awesome if true) but I am extremely skeptical, that seems like to much for one GPU.

MacBook Pro :: Can't Find A Store With Retina / What About Non Retina
I had decided to get a retina MacBook Pro earlier, but I have grown tired of never finding them in the stores. Now I am wondering if the non retina would be the best way to go.

MacBook Pro :: Retina Can't Use External 30" Dell Display
I've connected my 30" Dell 3007WFP display to my Macbook Pro 15" Retina laptop with Apple's adapter for Thunderbolt to DVI-D Dual Link.  The display is only receiving Single Link instead of Dual Link, limiting the resolution to 1280x800 instead of 2560x1600. 

Has anyone else seen this problem?  On the forums at, a few other people have reported this issue.  One person there has reported that his adaptor (same model as I have) provided this display with Dual Link when connected to a Macbook Air but not when connected to the MBP Retina. If that's true, then it sounds like there's a defect in the MBP Retina. At the least, should I return the adapter until Apple makes some kind of a statement about whether this can be fixed?

MacBook Pro :: Configuring External LaCie HD Set-Up?
I have just acquired a MacBook Pro (and external Apple 23" Cinema Display), that I will be using to replace my (sad to say) older eMac. I have also acquired a new LaCie 1TB Quadra HD for my external HD source.

I am interested in ideas for the best set-up of the LaCie drive. I will be completely erasing
the MacBook Pro internal drive and reinstalling the latest OSX (Snow Leopard) ... however I would
still like to hang onto my eMac OS10.4.11 while I am in this "transitionary stage". I have tons
of apps including Adobe CS4, Video Editing, Audio editing, and many productivity applications that
will take some time to replace under the new Snow Leopard.

What is the most efficient method of setting up the external LaCie? Would it be best to partition
the LaCie and keep a "copy" of my entire eMac HD on it, so I can boot from OS10.4.11 when I
absolutely need to? Also, is there any need to keep another partition for any Windows use under
Snow Leopard?

MacBook Pro :: LaCie 250GB External Hard Drive Not Recognized
My Lacie External HD that I've had for several years and holds a lot of my files is no longer being recognized on my MacBOok Pro. It used to recognize it instantly when I plugged the USB cable to the USB Port - now, nothing. The Lacie light is on, but my laptop isn't reading it at all. What's going on??? I did a disk utility - it's not showing up there at all either. Is it due to a software update? Don't get me started on losing out on using my entire Dreamweaver/Flash Studio MX 2004. Also, I notice my iPhone is not being recognized in iPhoto anymore either. It is recognized in iTunes. And yes I've heard many folks say email photos should be removed, which I have done so and still nothing!

MacBook Pro :: Lacie Rugged XL 2TB External Hard Drives.
I recently purchased two Lacie Rugged hard drives, a 500GB for client use (meaning, it is given to clients to review raw footage and then given back to me where I then make edits.) The 500GB is calibrated at 50% Mac usage and 50% other and it has been worked out fine thus far. The other hard drrive is a 2TB Rugged XL Hard Drive  has not been used due to the pop up I get when clicking the LaCie Setup Assistant which reads "You can't open the application LaCie Setup Assisstant because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."

1.) What does "You can't open the application LaCie Setup Assisstant because PowerPC applications are no longer supported." mean?†

2.) How do I fix it?

3.) Will fixing it effect my 500GB drive?

MacBook Pro :: 2012 With Retina Display Won't Recognize External Hard Drive
I have 2 Macbook Pro's, a 2009 and this brand new one I got today. My external hard drive is a 1 TB clickfree. It has worked for months on my old Mac but when I plug it into my new mac it doesn't even show up in finder or disk utility. I tried the USB ports with another device and they work fine. So it isn't a hard ware issue. The cables are USB 3.0. The external hard drive model number is HD2037N3.I have tried taking everything off (huge pain) and reformatting the drive and still it doesn't recognize it! how I can get my Mac to recognize it?

MacBook Pro :: To Migrate Iphoto Library From LACie External Drive To MBP
I'm expecting my new MBP to arrive soon(to replace the PowerBook G4 which I've had lots of problems with in past yrs) and will pay Apple $99 to migrate contents of PBG4 to MBP. I understand they will not migrate from a non-Apple product, so I need to have a step-by-step on how to migrate my iphoto library from LaCie external drive (and it's not running the most recent version of iphoto - so that will be different on the MBP too).

Concerned also that Apple will update MBP soon - wil they replace if it's with in a certain time frame??

MacBook Pro :: Stopped Recognizing External HDD?
Last night I ejected the LaCie 500GB external hard drive to take the MBP into the living room and use it as a laptop, pretty crazy. This morning I plugged the LaCie back into the USB and booted up the MBP. MBP does not recognize the LaCie is connected. The LaCie is powered up and the light is flashing on the power button. I checked the Disk Utility to see if the LaCie was recognized, nope. Used System Profiler to view the USB attached devices and the LaCie does not show up there. I checked to make sure the USB was working by plugging in my iPhone and synching which worked fine. Put MBP to sleep, then restarted and then rebooted from Apple menu, read somewhere that this does an SMC whatever that is.

MacBook Pro :: Apple DVD Player Not Recognizing External Speakers?
I have connected a pair of Logitech V20 notebook speakers to my MacBook Pro. I adjusted the System Preference settings/Sound/Sound Effects - play sound effects through "Logitech USB Speaker" and that works fine. I can hear my laptop's beeps through the external speakers.

But when I put in a movie DVD and the Apple DVD Player boots up, the sound does not come through the external speakers. So, in the DVD Player, I selected Preferences/Disc Setup/Audio/Audio Output and the external speakers are not there - only "System Sound Output" with nothing else available/recognized.
So, how do I get the DVD Player to put the sound out through my external speakers and not the laptop internal speakers?

MacBook Pro :: Restore From Time Machine Not Recognizing External Drive
I woke up the other day to a black screen and a frozen macbook pro (4 months old). It wouldn't boot up past the gray screen, so I tried to repair the drive with the install disc. It said that there are no errors, so I wiped it and tried to restore from my latest Time Machine backup (should be the day prior). However, when trying to restore through the install disks, I only see a backup from April (5 months ago). Even if I try to restore from that one, it says that I don't have enough disk space and won't do anything for me. Migration assistant in OSX doesn't see my external drive, even though I can access it through finder. I just want my system back to what it looked like prior to my crash. Shouldn't Time Machine have this capability?

Software :: MacBook Pro Not Recognizing Enter Key On External Keyboard?
My MacBook Pro (running OS X 10.6.2) suddenly does not respond when the "Enter" key on my external Apple keyboard is pressed. All the other keys work fine. I'm using the Apple low-profile keyboard with numeric keypad--here's a link to it at the Apple Store.

The problem doesn't appear to be with the keyboard; I've plugged it into another MacBook (running the same OS), and the Enter key works fine.

Mac Pro :: LaCie External Will Not Mount
I knocked my external off the desk. Smash, buggered that hard drive. So I bought a new drive, made sure it was the same drive, installed it fine. But it's not mounting. The blue access light on the front just flashes continuously, but the drive won't mount so I can format it.

MacBook :: How To Amount LaCie External HDD?
A few months ago I bought a new LaCie "Little Disk" external 500 GB HDD. Has Firewire and USB power.

Formatted for both Windows and Mac (Fat32). Everything was going fine. One day the disk would not eject. That is when the problems started. I had to manually remove the disk without ejecting.

Having done this with my other LaCie external HDD without any future problems (it would always remount) I didn't think anything of it.

Since then, the disk will not mount on either the Mac or the PC. The disk will not mount using the Firewire or the USB power connectivity even though the blue power light is on.

When I open Disk Utility with the LaCie plugged in, Disk Utility crashes. When I open Disk Utility before the LaCie is plugged in and then plug the LaCie in afterwards, it crashes.

I tried plugging the LaCie in before booting my MacBook to see if that worked, but that method prevented the MB from booting at all!

Contacted LaCie about this but have yet to hear back. I'm convinced that this can be solved cleanly without any data loss. Suggestions?

Mac Pro :: LaCie External Hard Drive - Wake / Sleep
I'm on an early 2008 mac pro - used to be on a Powerbook G4. I have a 300 GB LaCie d2 Extreme external HD connected via firewire 800. Both are in 10.5.2. While on my powerbook, the drive behaved normally - fell asleep after no use, then awakened when I needed to access something. On my new mac pro, the drive behaves strangely. I only use it for backup, so it's only accessed once a day. The rest of the time I do not use it. When it's not in use, the drive sporadically wakes and sleeps. I've tried to pinpoint the cause to no avail.

I've tried all the usual suspects: browsing the forums, checking the "hard disk sleep" preference in energy saver, switching the firewire 800 cable with usb and firewire 400, watching activity monitor to see if there's a program accessing the drive (haven't found anything, but that doesn't mean it's not there). None of it works.

OS X Tiger :: Best Backup Software For LaCie External HD
I finally settled on the Lacie rugged external HD's -I have a 320 gb partitioned for my MacBook Pro 10.4.11 backup, my iMac desktop 10.3.9 backup but this also has a OS 9 side to it that has a lot of files I want to save from my old Mac Performa. I also have a 500 gb for backup of just my MacBook Pro which I seem to be running out of space on continually! Can anyone suggest a reliable, easy to use back up software to use. I know Lacie offers the Intego backup assistant BUT that's for 10.4 and 10.5 Does anyone know if they sell an earlier model that would also back up my 10.3.9 and OS 9? AND how reliable it is? I have spent days trying to figure this out, how to password protect, and also loading a new PDA & Life balance program! About password protecting the Lacie - I think I can password protect ea. partition separately on the same drive, right?

Software :: LaCie External HD Suddenly Not Mounting?
I have a new-ish Mac Mini and a MacBook Pro. I've been slowly migrating my Pro files to the Mini for some flexibility/stability. I've had the LaCie HD hooked up to the Pro FOR EVER. It's only ever been on a Mac--never a PC.

The LaCie seems to be fine.

However, on the Mini, it's suddenly mounting (both partitions--don't ask, I made them long ago and can't recall why) with a little lock at the bottom left of the icon. When I Get Info and look at permissions I have to unlock it and all/any users listed are noted with "Custom" preferences.

I can't R/W--I get "The folder "Stuff" could not be opened because you do not have sufficient access privileges.

I had just purchased a Lacie 500GB xternal drive for my G5, I also have another xternal drive hooked up which is a Western Digital. I copied everything , music video files ect... onto the Lacie drive to clean up the WD drive, now when I went to clean up the new Lacie drive the files I deleted are gone but it is not freeing up any space. I went to disk utilities and re-formatted but it wiped it clean, is there such a way to delete a few files here and there and gain the space they were taking up without going this route?

Hardware :: LaCie External HDD Never Spins Down - Is It Normal
Unlike the other external HDD that I built years ago, the LaCie drive does not spin down even when it is not being accessed. This is annoying because my iMac runs silently but the LaCie drive is quite loud with the HDD spinning.

Is this normal for an external HDD? How can I make it spin down when it's not being used?

Having said above, the LaCie drive does spin down when I put the iMac to sleep.
