Mounting Catch 22

Sorry if this problem seems lame to you experts, but I'm confused.

I'm trying to backup all files to my Lacie external HD from my internal iMac G5 160 GB HD. It gets about 17 seconds into the operation, then errors out. The log says it can't unmount the Lacie disk.

But when I go to Disk Utility and unmount the disk, then SD doesn't see it anymore. Frankly, I don't understand what the purpose of mounting and unmounting is, but now I guess I'm going to learn.

All I want is a complete backup. It's worked before, I didn't change anything -- except I updated to 10.3.9.

I'm getting Tiger when it's released. I hope they've done something to make this whole process easier.
