Forgot / lost admin userid and password

Post by bluemoon25 » Mon Oct 31, 2011 3:31 pm

I have a Lacie Ethernet Bigdisk and have forgotten the admin userid / password.

The Admin / Admin default does not work any longer

How can I reset these please ?

I found this post:

which says:
-Turn the drive off -When pushing the power button to switch the drive ON, keep holding the power button until the blue LED of the power button starts to flicker and then release the button. -Then, after 1 or 2 seconds the button’s LED should flicker with another rhythm. -Push the button again. After a few seconds, the LED will flicker again but with a third different rhythm. Release the button. -If the drive turns off then the power button was held in two long during the last step, please try again if the drive powers off.
Every time I try this step my drive powers off which seems to indicate that I am holding the power button too long during the last step....I have repeated this 5 or 6 times but every time I try my drive powers off !
If I am following the right steps how long should I be holding the button down during each step ?
Is there some other way to reset the drive please ?
