Will my LaCie drive work with iPad USB-C?

 

LaCie has added support for iPad USB-C devices. For a list of compatible drives please see the below table.  

The list of drives in the below table have been tested by LaCie with iPad USB-C devices. If your drive is not listed below, it should work with iPad USB-C but has not been tested.

Note on exFAT format via Windows: When formatting a drive as exFAT on a Windows PC, set the allocation size between 128K to 1024K. Allocation sizes larger than 1024K can lead to detection and write issues on an iPad USB-C. This is only true when formatting on a Windows PC.   

For a list of what functions are supported please refer to the following article, Features Supported by LaCie External Drives on iPad USB-C
