I know there is data on my phr-250a mcally external hard drive but it's showing empty folder

Leave it connected to your computer and try a restart.
If the folder is still showing as empty, power down the computer then disconnect the external drive.
Power on the computer and connect the external hard drive to a different usb port.
I had this exact problem with a 1000 Gb external drive that was full of movies and music. I thought it had all been lost .. After 2-3 days and repeated attempts of restarts and power-downs/different usb ports it suddenly was recognised again and has worked perfectly since

Macally G-S350SUA power supply

  • I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.

I lost my ac adapter for my PHR-100ACB external drive. I do not have a manual for same. Please point me to where I can download a manual and the part number, relative price, and/or where I can get a...

Here is the manual for the PHR-100AC, this is for e, but it will work for your B model as that's just a revision I believe.
Unable to find a replacement ac adapter. You could try calling Macally directly @ 909. 230.6888 or . My experience this will cost you about $20 anyway. It may be worth just picking up a new enclosure. At least you'll have spare parts for everything else. It's $40 on newegg.
Good luck! I know this isn't everything you were looking for, but if this helps at all please give a positive rating. Thank you.

I own a Macally PHR 100AC, but lost my power supply cable in a recent move. Is there some place where a new one can be purchased and if so, how much is it?

It has a very odd plug so it will be more difficult to find. (meaning you will not be able to get a universal replacement at Radio Shack, for example). I would send a note to Macally on their web site and inquire about a replacement

Hard Drive not mounting

Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

Blue light is not working

What is this?? Is the drive internal, or by the blue light I assume you mean it is external. Is the blue light really all that nessesary? If you need it to shine (and I assume you just WANT it to shine 'cause it's PRETTY) then try installing any software that came with it, and by the way, what brand is this?

Jm, Unhook the drive from the computer turn off the drive and turn-off the computer. After about a minute plug the drive into the computer and turn it on, then turn the computer on. That should help find the drivers. If not post back any errors. Good Luck, Tim
