SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: External drive recognized as CD drive

You need to do a firmware flash. It worked for me. Here's the link to the fix.

my final solution was to remove the drive from the housing and install it as a slave in the main case. The computer is operating Windows XP and instantly recognised the drive. Works fine, all of my data is there. No problem now. This approach will not help laptop users but they might try removing the drive from the ACOMDATA housing and installing it in another housing.

I would say take the drive out and if you have SATA connectors on your motherboard, connect it directly to you computer and see if the computer will recognize it.  If it does, your enclosure is bad.

SOURCE: acomdata external harddrive is not recognize on vista

I had a similar issue with windows 2008 and windows 7. the drive lost all its info and had to be reinitialized under both of those O.S.'s..
You can try that as long as it doesn't have any data you need.. Once you do that the drive will work and you can start using it. The file system under vista and above is slightly different than xp.

I recommend reinstalling Vista, and replacing the Hard Drive as well. The errors being sporadic could be indicative of a hardware failure or a software failure and could be both in tandem.

Check the HP website and see if there are Vista drivers for your model. If you installed them from the disk they're likely not compatible.

It is possible that the adaptor is not compatible with your version of windows vista, despite what the system requirements for the device say.

Below is a link where you can download the latest driver for your bluetooth adaptor. Support XP sp1, sp2, and vista. Try this driver
