Health and Safety Precautions

  • Only qualified persons are authorized to carry out maintenance on this device.
  • Read this User Manual carefully and follow the correct procedure when setting up the device.
  • Do not open a storage device or attempt to disassemble or modify it. Never insert any metallic object into the device to avoid any risk of electrical shock, fire, short-circuiting, or dangerous emissions. The storage device contains no user-serviceable parts. If it appears to be malfunctioning, have it inspected by a qualified LaCie Technical Support representative.
  • Never expose your device to rain, or use it near water, or in damp or wet conditions. Never place objects containing liquids on the LaCie storage device, as they may spill into its openings. Doing so increases the risk of electrical shock, short-circuiting, fire, or personal injury.

General Use Precautions

  • Do not expose the LaCie storage device to temperatures outside the range of 5º C to 30º C (41º F to 86º F); or to operational humidity beyond 10-80%, non-condensing, or non-operating humidity beyond 5-90%, non-condensing. Doing so may damage the LaCie device or disfigure its casing. Avoid placing your LaCie storage device near a source of heat or exposing it to direct or indirect sunlight. Indirect sunlight includes, but is not limited to exposure to the sun through a window. Placing your LaCie device in an environment that is too cold may damage it.
  • Do not use the LaCie device near other electrical appliances such as televisions, radios or speakers. Doing so may cause interference which will adversely affect the operation of the other products.
  • Do not place the LaCie device near sources of magnetic interference, such as computer displays, televisions, or speakers. Magnetic interference can affect the operation and stability of your LaCie device.
  • Never use excessive force on your LaCie device. If you detect a problem, consult the troubleshooting section in this manual.
  • Protect your LaCie device from excessive exposure to dust during use or storage. Dust can build up inside the device, increasing the risk of damage or malfunction.
  • Never use benzene, paint thinners, detergent, or other chemical products to clean the outside of the LaCie device. Such products will disfigure and discolor the casing. Instead, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the device.
