After you have set up your LaCie Fuel, you can change the settings or restore the original factory settings.
Your LaCie Fuel’s battery is pre-charged from the factory and can run for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. You may want to charge the LaCie Fuel before other devices connect to it and access videos, photos, and music. For more information on charging, see Charging the Battery.
If you experience minor problems with your LaCie Fuel, follow these steps to shut down and restart the device:
Your LaCie Fuel device will restart. When it is fully powered on and broadcasting wirelessly, the LaCie Fuel will appear in the list of wireless networks on your device. You must reconnect to your LaCie Fuel device (see Connecting Your Device).
To turn off your LaCie Fuel, press the Power button on the device, or shut down the device from the Seagate Media app. The LaCie Fuel stops broadcasting wirelessly when it is off.
When you restore the LaCie Fuel to its original factory settings, all the files stored on your LaCie Fuel are retained. While your files and folders are kept on the device, all other settings, such as the the device name and password, are removed. A good reason to reset your LaCie Fuel can be forgetting a password.
You can also use the factory reset button, a recessed button next to the USB 3.0 port on the side of the device. Using the end of a fine point (for example, a paper clip), press and release this button to reset your LaCie Fuel to its original factory settings.
The LaCie Fuel device is named LaCie Fuel xxxx, where xxxx is the unique identifier for your device. This appears in the wireless network list, also known as the SSID (Service Set Identifier). To change the default name, follow the instructions below:
You must reconnect to your LaCie Fuel device after the name has been changed (see Connecting Your Device).
You might want to set a password if you’re in an environment where you don’t want others to connect to your LaCie Fuel. Setting a password turns WPA security on, which protects your wireless transmissions.
To discontinue the use of a password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select Turn Password Off. You will be prompted to enter the current password to confirm the change in settings.
The Seagate Media app supports different languages. You can change the language of the app. Changing the language of the app does not affect the language of the media device that you are using.
To delete content, connect your LaCie Fuel to your computer using the provided USB 3.0 cable. Open the LaCie Fuel and select the content to delete. When you are finished deleting media, make certain to safely eject the LaCie Fuel from your computer (see Eject the hard drive).
