hi Liz:) this could be the end of the drive or it could be somthing simple like a bad usb cable or port. im assuming you are using a windows operating system. first attach the external drive to your computer. then goto start menu and right click on "computer"(my computer for XP)/ select manage/ select storage/ select disk management/ now look for your drive. if you don't see it try a different usb port(s). if you still cant see it try a different usb cable(s). if none of this works try plugging the external drive into another computer just to be sure but if none of this works then the drive is shot sorry:( hope this helps but if you have any more questions just ask:)

MY Apple computer all of a sudden is not recognizing my 160GB Firelite. It has power but when plugged in the icon won't appear on the desktop and I can't access the drive? Was working earlier in the day.

Try going to utilities in the applications folder, in utilities select disk utility and see if the drive shows up, if so select repair disk after selecting the SmartDisk. If not showing select your hard drive and run repair permissions and see if it helps. Failing this you need a 3rd party disk repair solution like DiskWarrior. The information is still there!

I have a smartdisk Fire Lite external harddrive - When I plug it into the usb hub the computer does not acknowledge it


If you power up the drive and you can feel that the drive is actually spinning, a periodic clicking noise is bad news.
Does the computer make a sound when you plug it in, or does it make a sound.

If the computer recognize when you plug it in, but it just not show in my computer, here is how you fix the problem. Go to:

control panel
Administrative tools
Computer management
Disc management

Now you should see your drive in the schematic below. Right click on it and choose the option to change drive letter or paths. Now just assign a new drive letter to the drive, restart your computer and it should work fine.

Best regards

Smartdisk 160GB Crossfire hard drive

I had this same problem. One option is to open the smartdisk up. It should have a seagate ata drive inside. Attach it to a computer as a slave drive. Your dive will appear as a secondary drive on your computer. you should be able to get all your files off the drive. If your worried about voiding your computers warranty you can buy a usb adapter to make the drive act as an external drive. I highly recommend never using this drive again. I used it as my main hard drive and it fried on me. If you plan on getting rid of this drive let me. I need the circuit board to get my music files and portfolio off my failed drive. Thank you.
