Question about SanMax (HD-339-CB) (PTHD-339-CB) Drive Case

Open Question

Mac can't find SanMax HD-339-CBB -- Blinking red light...

Hey all,
We had cleaners in the office over the weekend. Came in on Monday, and the front button on the external HD had been pressed in, green light on, and fan was running. (Looks like the stapler was pressed into it by accident.) Now, I've got a constantly blinking red light on the front button, and I can't seem to discover the drive.
Help, please! Running the latest Mac OS.
Thanks!

SOURCE: USB Connection Issues

Cat this is your earlier problem reworded - I can see now that this is a dual device. If you can use it that way in Firewire mode leave it at that. However - is it possible that this is a 'switchable mode device and you have not discovered the secret of how to. If there is anything like a manual with this check it thoroughly or get into the makers tech support team

SOURCE: USB Connection Problems

Jackboy, that wasn't a very good answer and it is apparent you are unfamiliar with the SanMax HD-338 External Hard Drive Case which has BOTH USB and Firewire connectors.

I don't have the answer to Redfire's question, but at least we need to understand her situation. She's not getting USB and Firewire confused. She's simply saying that when connected as USB Windows XP has trouble "seeing" the drive and when using her firewire connection off of the external case, she doesn't have this problem and is wondering why.

The check engine light came on, not starting now


Change out your oil cause its low or dirty.  Take the thing into the auto parts store or a mechanic so they can hook the thing up to their computer and see what trouble codes come up from the check engine light.

Refrigerator has started turning off on weekends for no reason


Does it start cooling soon after the office is opened? It is possible that it is in a defrost cycle right at the time that you open the office. Frost free refrigerators are control by a defrost timer which may be starting defrost soon before the office is opened. Defrost time is 18-22 minutes. Or the thermostat could be sticking in the open position while there is little or no door traffic. When you open the office and check its operation it could be what is restarting the system operation. If this is the case replace the thermostat.

Seagate SanMax 120GB external with fan noise


It depends on the noise. It should be still under warranty. You should NEVER operate it without a fan as this is a safety hazard. If it is making a noise like a buzzsaw, it is most likely the bearings of the HD mechanism. If it is making a scraping noise, it's likely the fan. Make use of the warranty if/while you still can!

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
