I had the same problem with my firelite usbflb80-c, and carefully took the case off, 4 screws (one screw under the void if broken warranty sticker) my drive had somehow wiggled it's way out if the connection pins. Figures, with 5 yrs of use, all the traveling and occasional dropping. So I carefully pushed the drive back in place until I couldn't see connection pins any more. I plugged it into my computer before I closed it back up. THANKFULLY an easy fix, but I double checked for breaks or cracks before I closed it up. :o) YAY, I thought I had lost all my files!

Sounds like you have a hardware failure either in the drive enclosure or the hard drive itself.
I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the smartdisk shell that is damaged.
Take the Smartdisk unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.
Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.
Hope this Helps FixYa,

SOURCE: External smartdisk firelite
It seems that you will lose your files. These file already
infected with virus, and corrupted it. There's no other
way but to reformat your smartdisk.

If it is new and has not come pre formatted then you need to format it to match the system as it still could be in RAW state, but I would expect usb devices to be preformatted. (not always the case though)
A bit of history:-
FAT32 recognised by all windows systems ( but does not support files more than 4GB)
NTFS recognised by systems other than FAT32 (and supports files above 4GB)
FAT 32 was the native format for WIN98 but unfortunately when XP came along many companies continued to format in FAT32 for XP machines especially for the home user. (and XP would run quite happily with the format)
NTFS was and is the more stable of the two.
