Question about Acomdata 500GB External Firewire HD 500 GB FireWire 400 Hard Drive
My acomdata HD500uhe5-72 cant be seen . on XP may have accidentially been unplugged and it no longe is seen by XP I emailed acomdata but no response. Is there a way to fix and recover it?
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.
