Question about Acomdata PHOTON 2.5 (PHD080U2E54) Hard Drive

Acomdata Photon 250 gig not working

Hi I live in India and we have no acomdata service here at al. I have formatted my photon with NTFS. A couple of days back I noticed that the disk would not autorun, double clicking would bring up an "Open with" dialog box. and the only way I could access it was to enter the drive letter in the run dialog. Then while trying to transfer stuff to a friends laptop, the dreaded red light came on, and from that point on I have been unable to get it detected on any computer. I have tried to get it detected using fedora but to no avail..what should I do. Should I just crack open the case, and the get the 2.5 recognised in native mode, which usually works for most 3.5" drives?

    I have the same problem. I did find that pressing on the light button and holding it down while plugging it in would cause the CD part to be seen. But my OS still can't see the HD part. I have not tried using the windows recovery console that someone else mentioned, so I don't know if that would help.

I would try running chkdsk via the recovery console. does your bios dectect the drive, and just not the os?

Have you been able to access the drive in the past? If so it might have become corrupt so do a reformat of the drive and format it to NTFS. You can also uninstall and reinstall the drive for your HD before doing this. Pretty much a last resort.

Can't access the files anymore. how can I retrive them?


If the hard drive itself is damaged, your files may be permanently lost. There are companies that will attempt to recover your files from the drive for a fee... that usually involves sending them your drive with pre-payment. They will often disassemble your drive in a clean-room environment and transfer your disks to another identical drive then try to access the data. If the disk surfaces are damaged, files on the damaged areas are usually not retrievable...

If you purchased the new case, as the company recommended, then properly moved your drive into the new case, it is likely that you will have to resort to the recovery scenario above.

Acomdata external hard drive


Hi,

No ned to check in that.

The external hard drive can be fomatted by : 

Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

In that select the format option.

But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

Use the full format option.

Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

Then you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Cannot copy large files to drive


Your external drive is formatted for FAT32 which only will accept max 4GB transfers. Try NTFS format. Take a look at page 47 on this file then go from there. Hopefully this helps. http://www.acomdata.com/AcomData_Downloads/3.5_External_Hard_Drives/E5_Series_Hard_Drives/HDxxxSE5-72-PCI/M-HDxxxSE5-72-PCI-v1E.pdf

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.
