Lacie Rugged 1 TB not recognised by CDJ

I own Lacie Rugged 1 TB drive and sometimes using it for gigs instead of sticks. But my last gig turned out terrible since I couldn't perform due to not recognising Lacie issue of CDJ (Most probably it was Nexus 2).

I used Rekordbox 5 to analyse tracks and exported to Lacie with Sync Manager. And then checked from "Devices" tab of left menu in RB and I could see my synced playlist under drive. But after I connected the drive, Boom! No File :/  Error on screen was similar to like "No Folder" error on background where we browse our playlist and "Corrupted drive. Database not found" pop-up error. 

Tried to fix issue with my Mac. Formatted the Lacie as FAT32 and synced playlist again and tried second time but no joy. But right after I connected to my XDJ-RR at home and it could read it right away as always.

So what might be the issue that cause Lacie to be recognised by XDJ but not by CDJ? I really wonder it and want to solve this issue permanently.

 

Kind Regards.

Hey Murat,

The most likely cause is that the drive is drawing more power than the CDJ is providing to spin it up. Consider using a Y-connector to provide additional external power from a USB charger brick.

Hi Pulse,

Thanks for quick respond but I want to clarify one part.

Is your reply exact root cause or just your opinion? If the reason as you said, so I wonder how can XDJ make the drive spin and work well even though its lower model of CDJs and CDJs are 4-5 times more expensive than XDJs. Is there any technical explanation behind?

Thanks.

Without testing your drive, it's speculation as to the possible cause -- but it's an easy thing for you to check with a Y cable to provide the additional power to rule it out.
