Bafo BF 2010

Hi, I just bought a pcmcia firewire just for my BF 2010. I tested BF2010 with my 60gb Maxtor in firewire and it looks fine. The problem comes when I tried my 160gb Maxtor drive, it does not repond. The disk was detected as it appears in the systemtray but in "My Computer" nothing added. Does this product supports 160gb hds?

Re: Bafo BF 2010

I just tried the FireWire ports (not USB as before). WinXP (sp3) picked the drive up in seconds, no driver required (VIA chipset in my 7 year old laptop w/FireWire port). However, mine is an 80gb drive. Transfer rate very fast compared to what USB 1.0 would be. Also finally found my OEM drivers... on the old drive I'm testing ;^D. Turns out the NT/XT driver is buggy for USB anyway. Finds then dismounts the USB connection intermittently. Very unreliable. New cable makes no diff. I would like to upload the driver and manual PDF for you but there is no option for either. The FireWire device is found in "Control Panel > System > Device Manager" reports the device as "SBP2 Compliant IEEE 1394 device". The driver is (2001) 5.1.2600.5512 version of "sbp2port.sys". See if you's shows up in similar fashion. If not, and you're sure the driver for the PCMCIA card driver is good (and the card itself is good), the best solution is to dust off your friendly local FireWire capable PC or drop in an old FireWire card in it for under $10 from your local PC shop's surplus box.

USB Connection Problems

You say have a SanMax HD-338-CB USB/Firewire External HD with a 160MB drive. You then say sometimes I have to reboot Windows XP pro 2 or 3 time before I see the drive using a USB 2.0 connection. Fire wire is a different system with a different connector style- so it should not be in a USB port or a USB connector should not be in a Firewire device. Get you device and connections sorted The desktop display simply puts up a device it will not differentiate which USB or Firewire

Maxtor one touch usb hard drive

I would remove the hard drive from the case and slave it to my primary drive inside the tower. If it is out of warranty then it is likely old and about to die. Maxtors do not exactly have a reputation for longevity. Your best bet would be to image it and restore the image on a new drive.

BAFO BF 2010

I have mine, it works well but in a very slow data transfer. I looks like it is made for the very first version of USB, I havent tried the firewire yet. Try to go to add new hardware and install the driver that comes with the package. I am also using windows xp.

Blue power light is flashing red and the hard drive won't mount

Hi Vieve, The manual says nothing about flashing red and blue nor could I find anything of any real substance. Basically this thing is a box containing an IDE hard drive and some electronics that interfaces the drive with firewire, power distribution and a few other odds and ends. I suspect the board that contains the electronics may be damaged, however, its entirely possible that this may be some undocumented error that can be reset. I would try calling the vendors tech support, it?s at least worth a shot. If getting your data off is the concern it might be worth your time to buy another enclosure, install your drive and plug it into your Mac. There is a good chance your data is recoverable. Sorry I couldn?t get you a more definitive answer.
