hi to all,
i have bought a lacie p9220 500 gb usb external hard drive and i have noticed that it need some software from lacie's site prior format !
i do not want to installed any software nor to registered or create of any account with lacie
simply i want to format my drive and use it only for backups and nothing more
also, the usb port does not seems to last for long time !
i have bad experience just a year ago with a verbatim usb external drive when the usb port broken
unfortunately no warranty cover the damage
