ACOMDATA 160g E5 compatability

Can my Acomdata E5 160g (Nov 2005 model) share media files between a PC w/ Windows XP and a MacBook Pro w/ Leopard?

I lost it's (hd) original box during a move. Will the MacBook need a driver or anything installed?

Acomdata external HD not read. Clicking sound.


Try taking it out of the casing and putting it into another external hard drive case. That is if you can, if its making a clicking noise it probably means your hard drive went bad or it means its not getting enough power to run make sure all the cords are hooked up tight. I had that problem once the hard drive wasn't getting enough power and i had to mess with it on the inside to make it have enough power. I'm not saying take the hard drive apart im saying take the casing off it and check the inside cords to see if they are tight enough. If that doesn't work leave a message and ill try to help again.

Clicking sound on Firewire 250GB


okay, I had this issue with my acomdata 500GB. today I decided to open up the drive to see if I could remove it and restore the data. after unscrewing all six screws (4 on the front and 2 small ones on the side, you'll need two different phillips, a large one and small one), I looked inside. first I registered the driver inside (it's a Western Digital) in case I needed to get it replaced. sure enough, it was still under warantee, even though the enclosure/driver kit is not (acomdata warantee runs out after a year for this model). but I noticed a slippage on the mangnetic copper film strip right above the USB port entry. it was slightly falling off the edge of the port. so I just fixed it, not thinking much of it, it just didn't "look" right. then I had a thought to plug it back in. driver now works again! I am about to recover my files and then test unplugging it to see if this repair "sticks".

Changing system files


If its an external drive go to my computer, right click on the drive and click format. In the format box you should be able to choose which file system to use. Note: This will erase ALL data on the drive. This works with any secondary drive. For the primary drive you would have to reinstall windows, formatting in the XP setup process to change the file system type.

Acomdata external harddrive gone blank.


dont copy any data from or too the disk then use recover software. like Recover My Files, and if you copy any data to that disk it will damage the data you want.
