Question about Acomdata E5 (HD080FE5-72) 80 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive
Hi, I'm having a similar problem to one posted previously. My laptop won't recognize my acomata drive anymore (not in disk mgmt). The light is constantly red but it seems that the drive is 'on' (when I touch it, feels like it's working away and not dead). I've tried different USB ports and tried restarting but nothing has changed. I don't have easy access to another laptop to test that out. Any further suggestions to the problem?? Can someone please tell me I have not lost my data???
Someone suggested checking drive error logs - where do I find those?
I also had the Red Blue Blink Problem. I Followed Kelvin's advice and swapped the power cable with another AcomData drive. Success! That was quite a scare.

Hey Cella, I had the same problem, the LED flashes blue and red and it isn't recognized by the computer.
In my case, I had two of these drives connected to my desktop, one was still working while the other wasn't recognized. I swapped the power supply/ power cords that were connected and voila, it's recognized, all data is still there, no corruption or missing files.
In your case, you can try and contact acomdata and see if they can ship you a replacement or you may have to purchase the power supply.
Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.

Check your USB Cable connected possible lost contact problem or the power supply of your optical drive.
Hope this will be helpful to you.
