I have one of these 'life proof' Lacie Rugged XL hard disks. It is new and has only sat on my desk. It has been fine up till when I restarted my xp computer the other day, whereupon it stopped being recognised at all by usb, not in device manager or even BIOS. It is completely accessible on other computers.

Thanks for your reply 123Runner.

I have tried it in all my laptop's usbs. Other hard disks and devices work fine.

In device management the only red X is over my wireless card, which I have deliberately disabled.
