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

1 Answer

My Acomdata (500gb?) external hard drive isn't working

This is the upright silver box type drive - I no longer have the box and the model is not on the solid metal casing. It suddenly quit working - not appearing on my list of drives and flashes from red to blue - when it was working it was solid blue. Is there any reset button or solution?

    Thanks anyway, but already tried that many times - makes no difference. That was the first thing I tried... I'm not a complete novice.

    Im having the same problem as you..
    The blue light stays on, and Ive tried to plug it into different USB ports as well as different computers, but the furthest it gets is sounding likes it's just about to power up and mount onto the computer then just has a barely audible humming sound.  It doesnt mount on Windows or Mac for me right now.  There doesnt seem to be any sort of recognition from the external itself either, that it's plugged in to a computer.
    Suggestions?

Place it onto another computer, if you can see it and access it then plug it into a differant USB port on your computer.

the hard drive may be dead.

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.

Hard drive goes out in the middle of copying


Most of the time the problem can be solved by using a cable that is really short and of good quality.

or try another usb slot and see whether the problem repeats.

Now if the external drive is FAT (most of them come from factory as FAT formatted) and u are trying to copy files grater than 4GB, it will fail as FAT cannot recognize files larger than 4GB. SO you may try to format the external drives into NTFS, if thats the case.
