1 Answer

Light blue is on, Seems it doesn't start at all

Acomdata External HD s/n A00837839, Model hd25ou2ES-72 The light is on, it makes some kind of clicking noise but won't start. When I turn the switch off the light still on, doesn't it supposed to turn off? My computer is not reading it maybe because it is not working the drive.

Check it on a second computer, if the problem follows the drive, then the drive is defective. You could take the case apart, and make sure the cabling is properly seated. Have seen an external drive where the interface cable (to the drive itself) was not properly seated, and resulted in a non-working unit.

I am having a problem with my external hard drive I look over and the blue light is good on the Acomdata D32OUFAPE5-72 Hard drive and then I go to explorer and it is no longer in my directory as a...


Hello,

You can remove the hard drive from the case and put it into another, new usb hard drive case. You can buy one for 20-30 dollars. I have seen this many times before. The hard drive is probably okay, but the controller inside the acomdata case is likely dead. Don't worry, just get a new usb hd case.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

Problems with Hard Drive


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

T your concern:
  • initially, pls verify that it is indeed an external storage problem rather than a laptop USB issue by trying other USB devices and determine if they are recognized and working;
  • disassemble the enclosure of the Acomdata external hard drive and remove the actual hard drive;
  • you would need the use of a 2nd PC, a desktop that could accommodate the HD from the Acomdata (IDE or SATA);
  • install the HD from the Acomdata as a Secondary Master or Slave internally to the 2nd PC;
  • boot the 2nd PC and determine if the HD from the Acomdata will be recognized as a local drive;
  • chances are that the partition of the HD from the Acomdata was messed up. This would explain the blinking blue light;
  • download and install a file recovery program. An example is GetDataBack (unfortunately not a freeware but DEMO is available) and do a recovery. It would take some time based on the size of the HD from the Acomdata;
  • temporarily save the recovered data in the 2nd PC. You can burn this likewise into a DVD backup should the 2nd PC be capable of that;
  • after recovery, re-partition and format the HD from the Acomdata while still attached to the 2nd PC;
  • should the re-partition and format be successful, you can transfer back the temporarily saved recovered files;
  • a nice, simple, fast and safe partitioning/formatting software is Partition Magic (unfortunately not a freeware but FREE TRIAL is available).
  • should the re-partition and format be not successful, you can replace only the HD and/or claim warranty.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
