Put it in the freezer overnight in a bag. For some reason it might be stuck in a read mode. Just because you did not tell windows to stop the drive does not mean you hurt it. When you go to use it again,
plug it in and turn it on, you should hear the drive start to spin, if not
you could shake it and see if it starts. Then after it is plunged in
and plugged into the pc, start the pc and wait till after windows is up and running, after 3mins, if not seen unplug, firewire and plug it back in and wait a few mins. If nothing, contact the company and see if it is still under warranty. I hope this helps you. Any other questions,please post back,everyone is more then happy to help you.

Try rebooting the computer first with the drive not connected to it.
After the computer reboots, make sure the accomdata is turned off then connect the usb cable. Then turn it on and you should get the password dialog box and be able to access it.

Clicking sound on Firewire 250GB


okay, I had this issue with my acomdata 500GB. today I decided to open up the drive to see if I could remove it and restore the data. after unscrewing all six screws (4 on the front and 2 small ones on the side, you'll need two different phillips, a large one and small one), I looked inside. first I registered the driver inside (it's a Western Digital) in case I needed to get it replaced. sure enough, it was still under warantee, even though the enclosure/driver kit is not (acomdata warantee runs out after a year for this model). but I noticed a slippage on the mangnetic copper film strip right above the USB port entry. it was slightly falling off the edge of the port. so I just fixed it, not thinking much of it, it just didn't "look" right. then I had a thought to plug it back in. driver now works again! I am about to recover my files and then test unplugging it to see if this repair "sticks".

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.

Drive not recognized by desktop.


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.
