Question about Acomdata (HD080U2FE-72) 80 GB Hard Drive
My external hard drive was working fine and then one day it was no longer listed in My Computer or Device Manager. I know the data is still there. (I can't remember what I did to find that out). How can I retrieve this data or make the drive work again. I have already tried to reinstall the driver with no success.
My final solution was to remove the drive from the housing and install it as a slave in the main case. The computer is operating Windows XP and instantly recognised the drive. Works fine, all of my data is there. No problem now. This approach will not help laptop users but they might try removing the drive from the ACOMDATA housing and installing it in another housing.

My situation. No problems in 2 years. not used much (just itumes music). Unit turned on after a month, but my G4 Powerbook doesn't recognise it anymore. Drive is spinning. No clicks. Solid green light. Good connection and cables.
Talked to tech support at acomdata who says that the good news is (for me) it hard drive seems ok, but the fw/usb "board" is bad. Since out of warrenty, the only thing is to put in another external enclosure.
That sux still. Paid about $100 for this ****.
If you want to call it a "solution", you can peel back the skicker on the bottom, unscrew, take the hard drive out and put into a desktop or another encloser. per acomdata.
Trust me, no more acomdata enclosures.
