Even backups need backups too.
And a 'good' case is one where you can pulll the drive out and pop it into your Mac pro drive bay.
power supply bricks are known issue.
Mac OS updates that affect those models.
LaCie almost by their own invented the term and idea "reset firewire bus" routine after all.
Years and you can assume not forever but eventually it could and will fail.
I'd pick up a "spare" or replacement unit, one with eSATA/FW800/USB3
CallDigit 2 x SATA plus 2 x USB3 $139 - USB3 card and interface works better even on legacy (how long and old is USB2 now?) USB drives.

Thanks. I sent them an email because their phone just goes to a voicemail and you have to know your parties extention lol

The Hatter - I didn't quite understand everything you said. I have backed up the important stuff because I know they are bound to fail sometime. But this case doesn't seem like the drive has failed because it functions normal and I would prefer not have to just throw out another hard drive unless I'm sure it is done. I checked it with a working power supply and it still didn't function, and I have not updated anything since it was working. I am not connecting via usb2, it has firewire 400 and 800 ports, neither worked.
