I'm running Mac OSX 10.6 with a Lacie external 1TB external hard drive. The drive shows up on my desktop but not in Finder. I can access all my files however I can't empty the trash (it just freezes up) and I can't render my project in Final Cut Pro (it says 12 days and gets stuck there).


I've tried repairing the disk in Disk Utility and I get an error that says it can't unmount the disk. I've disabled spotlight (or at least tried), and that didn't help.


I've run the  lsof /Volumes/LaCie 1TB command in Terminal and this is what I get:

lsof: status error on /Volumes/LaCie: No such file or directory

lsof: status error on 1TB: No such file or directory

lsof 4.82
