USB 2.0 Acomdata 500GB External

Hi,

I bought USB 2.0 Acomdata 500GB External one-year ago. I made four partitions beside the permanent CD partition. This device always shows the following message after connection "To be faster, the device should be connected with Hi speed USB connection". Actually, this device is connected with Hi-speed USB port in my laptop and tested frequemntly with many computers, and the sam message appears.

The device is very slow because it runs as USB 1.0, please can you help me to make this message disappears, and the device runs over USB 2.0

Thank you

Make sure that the folder settings are set to Show hidden files, also if you want to format it then just format it and it should clear every thing unless you wanted to keep the files first.

SOURCE: Acomdata external hard drive

Hi,

No ned to check in that.

The external hard drive can be fomatted by : 

Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

In that select the format option.

But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

Use the full format option.

Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

Then you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio model SR150FN and I want to install a new TOSHIBA 500GB HD model MK5076GSX, the problem is that the BIOS can't see it, I put the HD in an external usb case, created a 500 GB...


> put HD into an external USB case
> the BIOS cannot see it

Correct. The BIOS does not see "external" USB devices.

However, see if you can "enable boot from USB devices",
and change the "boot order" to include USB devices.

You may need to remove the old disk-drive, and install the new disk-drive in its place.
Then, put the old disk-drive into the external USB case.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive, and then connect the external USB case,
and copy all the files from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive.

External 500gb hard drive not readable


Check the partition size in Disk Management (if running Win7 - download a free Partition Manager if not) and see if the system is seeing the partition correctly. Seagate has recovery software available on their website but you may just have to repartition and reformat.

You can partition your hard drive using any of the available free partition tools such as EASEUS Partition Master or Partition Logic. You can even buy tools like Partition magic to do the same job.

It sounds like your old laptop drive had 4 partitions on it.
If that is the case and you want it to be only one partition then you'll have to back up anything you want to keep in those partitions and reformat the drive as one partition.
You can reformat the drive using the Disk Management utility in Windows.

I can not see the other items on my hard drive and it only shows 83gb on my 500gb hard drive help


Hello,
It could be that the other 400gb is unformatted space. Use a utility such as Partition magic to extend the formatted partition, or create a partition in the unformatted space.

Hope it helps.

Problems with Hard Drive


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

T your concern:
  • initially, pls verify that it is indeed an external storage problem rather than a laptop USB issue by trying other USB devices and determine if they are recognized and working;
  • disassemble the enclosure of the Acomdata external hard drive and remove the actual hard drive;
  • you would need the use of a 2nd PC, a desktop that could accommodate the HD from the Acomdata (IDE or SATA);
  • install the HD from the Acomdata as a Secondary Master or Slave internally to the 2nd PC;
  • boot the 2nd PC and determine if the HD from the Acomdata will be recognized as a local drive;
  • chances are that the partition of the HD from the Acomdata was messed up. This would explain the blinking blue light;
  • download and install a file recovery program. An example is GetDataBack (unfortunately not a freeware but DEMO is available) and do a recovery. It would take some time based on the size of the HD from the Acomdata;
  • temporarily save the recovered data in the 2nd PC. You can burn this likewise into a DVD backup should the 2nd PC be capable of that;
  • after recovery, re-partition and format the HD from the Acomdata while still attached to the 2nd PC;
  • should the re-partition and format be successful, you can transfer back the temporarily saved recovered files;
  • a nice, simple, fast and safe partitioning/formatting software is Partition Magic (unfortunately not a freeware but FREE TRIAL is available).
  • should the re-partition and format be not successful, you can replace only the HD and/or claim warranty.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
