Question about FireLite (USBFLB80) Hard Drive
Dell Inspiron 2650 - os Windows xp - The above external hdd is not recognised when connected to the port. Data from the disk has to be recovered. The light flashes in the disk but not steady. This problem cropped up after the hdd is vacum cleaned when small red ants entered the disk. Prior to that there was no problem with the disk and its function. The data is important for me and has to be recovered.
Most likely the vacuum and not the ants. The vacuum could have given it a dangerous charge or vibration. You may need to extract the drive from the enclosure. It possible ( hopefully) that the enclosures bridge board failed instead of the drive. When you extract the drive, you will see....its construction is made well, and can stand up to crittters..
keep me posted.
