You may take out the drive and connect it directly to your computer using it's IDE cable to check if the HDD still work. This will help you check if the problem was caused by the enclosure or if the HDD is already defective.

I recently tried to access data from my Acomdata HD500 UF only to find that my Mac no longer detected it. The blue light comes on, but no fan sounds. Is it dead? Can I recover my old family photos,...


the hard drive may be dead.

stores like best buy offer services of data retrieval, although success is not 100% guaranteed, and these services generally are not cheap.

Can't access Ion Drive


You have to check also Disk Management while your HD is connected to the your computer.

First, if you can detect the HD in your Device Manager but not under the Disk Management, then the IOGEAR Tech Support is could be correct.

If that's the case, you need to contact IOGEAR and ask them to send you a USB Y-Cable. That Y-Cable is FREE. IOGEAR will just ask for your billing address, and they can send you one for free.

That Y-Cable has two type-A USB and one mini-B USB ports. The two type-A should be connected to the computer, and the other end to your HD. Having two USB connected to your computer, that should be enough for the HD to get power from the two USB ports.

If that did not help, I would suggest to connect your HD into different computer to see if you can detect it.

If you do detect it, back up all the files, reformat your HD, change the drive letter, and then retrieve all the files back.

Thank you and good luck!

My external hard drive makes a funny noise when I turn it on


Sounds like the hard drive is having an issue. It may be too late but you can try to freeze your hd and recover the data.

My external hd blue light just flashes and i dont have access.


Do you connect via USB or firewire? Can you / have you tried another connection method?
Does it sound like the disk is spinning normally, or is it making a heap of clunking noises or not spinning?
The most common problem (assuming it has power, which it obviously does because it has a blue light), is the USB cable. Do you have another that you can try?
Let us know how you go with that and we'll continue...

IOGEAR COMBO not recognised


Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
