Question about Acomdata E5 (HD080FE5-72) 80 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive
The light on my E5 has always been blue except when I'm virus scanning the drive, in which case it would blink red/blue - no problems. Up until a few weeks ago when suddenly the drive no longer shows up on my computer, the light is *always* red and will only sometimes turn blue and reconnect with my computer. The error it gives me is it needs to be plugged into a high speed port. My problem is that it *is* and has always been in the same port - so why did it work before and not now? Is the external basically fried or is there some reason why it suddenly began to do this?
I just found this im having the same problem tried what was sugested diff laptop , port some times it will show up on laptop but not allow me to access others it just wont show up . some times it ticks

This problem suggests either a problem with the enclosure electronics or your drive is having electrical/physical problems. First thing I would do is: If running Win2K, WinXP or Vista, check the System event log for errors relating to the "Disk". If no errors, try another USB port or another computer. See what happens. The Blue light is power, the red light is activity, a constant red light means interface problems (as noted above). There are more troubleshooting procedures after the above, but for now they are a bit premature (and lengthy). Let me know what happens. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
