Re: SmartDisk not recognized

Chris, There is software available that can try to find and restore "deleted" partitions if you had import information you needed to try to retrieve. If the "delete" was on purpose and you wanted to start over....ooops. You'll need to re-partition and re-format the drive. You should check with the hard drive manufactuer(maxtor?, seagate?,western digital?) and download the "tools" they offer to check the disk. You may be able to recover using a program from the disk manufactuering. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

No current driver for Smartdisk 120 GB HD, needed for Vista Ultimate 64bit

Any external drive uses a USB connection, and Windows Vista will recognize this "plug-and-play" device, using the built-in device-drivers.

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)

If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.


PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.

SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop Drive

Usually this is a problem with the usb port not being able to supply enough power to the drive. Often, units like this will come with two usb plugs on one cable to increase the current supplied to the drive. If the drive has an input for external power (some do, some don't), then using external power would help.
