That's definitely true chabig, but again is still some effort that is beyond the skill (or attention span) of some users - not to mention it's not free!

Hey turtle,

Agreed, for the most part I still believe in their quality. It's simply the support mentality and arrangements that I don't like.

Hi Spheric,

Normally I would've agreed with you. I have 5 lacie drives in my house, and I've always been a supporter of Lacie's 'build quality and reliability'. And, for the most part that's still...

Hi ChrisF,

If I can't move the drives to a tower and get them to work, how can I get them to work in a new enclosure? Is there no way to tell OSX that the drives are RAID0'd?

Thanks.

Hi angelmb,

Thanks for the reply. It is indeed the model above, but to clarify it's not the 'extreme' version, meaning it has Firewire 400 and 800 only (no USB).
