Question about FireLite (USBFLB80) Hard Drive
You are describing the symptoms of a classic cable short. My guess is the power plug cable on the A/C power adaptor or the socket it plugs into is damaged. Try holding the plug still and wiggling the power cable back and forth, chances are that will recreate the problem. -If you have basic tools and solder experience you can purchase a replacement plug, cut the old on off and attach the new one. -If you don?t have the time or inclination to fix it you can just purchase a replacement power supply. If it doesn?t appear to be the power (or if you?re not using the A/C power adaptor) it may be the USB cable or its socket. -Try a new cable. -Try a different USB socket; they are surprisingly easy to damage. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
