Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Not recognized After a year of good work the drive cannot be recognized by any PC.  The blue light is constantly on and it appears that the disc is not turning.  Only a 1 second clicking sound can be heard from the inside of the enclosure. Please advice what could be the problem here. Cheers, Buda

Th prob lem could be most probably your hard drive casing not supplying the correct voltage and not enough for the hard disk to spin the moter so please connect the hd directly to the computer if its fine just change the external casing..
good luck

The drivers must be up to date and written for your device. If there are no drivers, it will not communicate and thus it may look like it is working and in place, but the linkage is not there.

I have a 320gb toshiba external hard drive, i've been using it around 3 years without any trouble. A few days ago i lost the cable connecting it to the PC. I bought a few cables but no use. Doesn't...


Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.
