Acomdata hard drive Model HD320FES-72

Turned on the computer last week and it does not recognize my F: drive with the Acomdata firewire connection. Help! It has all my music. I have reconnected everything and restarted and sent several e-mails to Acomdata to no response. My computer doesn't recognize it and the hard drive makes an intermittent buzzing sound for about 30 seconds when powered up. Model HD160FES-72

Sounds like the drive has seized spindle... Not good news.
Is it buzzing similar to any of these noises: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
What you should do is remove the internal drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer. If still buzzing then it's a real mechanical problem...

Booted up my computer this am and the red light remains on and it does not appear that the system recognizes the external drive. The red light remains steady...I don't thhink the drive is running. How...


Hello,
it is a known issue that these particular drives sometimes don't get recognized by the Operating System, after coming out of Sleep, Stand By, or Hibernation.
Simply try to disconnect and reconnect the drive again in the USB port, if this doesn't work then, Disconnect it from the USB and connect it to the Firewire. if this doesn't work then, Restart the computer.
It should solve the problem.

OK, 2 things to check. First and foremost, when you plug it into the PC does it make that nifty noise to let you know it sees a new piece of hardware?

Second, if it does, you probably need to initialize the disk. Hit the windows button, right click on computer, and select manage. Under the storage category highlight Disk management. If you see the drive there, you can right click and select initialize, or format. From there the system should see the drive.

I upgraded my computer from Mac OS 9.1 to Mac OS 10.5 and now my computer doesn't recognize my hard drive


Try to unplugged power cord from main power source and open the case of your desk top computer. Stretch out some cable that connects to your hard drive. After that connect all necessssary connections for a self test. When you switch on, touch "del" several times to open a CMOS set up wizard. Look if your hard disk is recognized by the computer. If you can see the specified model of your HDD in the CMOS then you press F10 or just press ESC to reboot.

Acomdata HD500uhe5-72 cant be seen . on XP


Put it in the freezer overnight in a bag. For some reason it might be stuck in a read mode. Just because you did not tell windows to stop the drive does not mean you hurt it. When you go to use it again,
plug it in and turn it on, you should hear the drive start to spin, if not
you could shake it and see if it starts. Then after it is plunged in
and plugged into the pc, start the pc and wait till after windows is up and running, after 3mins, if not seen unplug, firewire and plug it back in and wait a few mins. If nothing, contact the company and see if it is still under warranty. I hope this helps you. Any other questions,please post back,everyone is more then happy to help you.

Connection


Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.
