if your hard drive is an IDE and not a sata connection , you have to check hard disk jumper,as you see there is a jumper at the edge of the disk,make sure to set it properly , pull it out the look for the secondary connection or the slave , good luck
OK, 2 things to check. First and foremost, when you plug it into the PC does it make that nifty noise to let you know it sees a new piece of hardware?
Second, if it does, you probably need to initialize the disk. Hit the windows button, right click on computer, and select manage. Under the storage category highlight Disk management. If you see the drive there, you can right click and select initialize, or format. From there the system should see the drive.
format again (assuming your using xp) make sure that the format is FAT-32 or FAT-16 and that the size is 120gb. Then check the drive properties and see if any space has been used. if so how much then post that and i'll work from there.
1.i gained info about the mains supply data (9 volts 2 a, minus pole in the center pole of the plug) which is a quite exotic supply in comparison to standard devices with 12 volts an plus pole in the center pole ... the fa 66 didn't work , when connected by 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 firewire cable . my laptop only has a small 4 pole socket. therefore i suppose that through this 4-pole socket and cable there was no current lead through.
after additionally connecting the fa-66 with mains supply AND 4 to 6 (fa 66 side) cable ... it finally worked. the manufacturer should print all relevant data directly to the fa 66 device near by the socket und also print "FA-66" onto the supply ... because i own lots of alike-looking supplys and it's a drag to find out which ist good for what... ;-)
I had the same issue- light was blinking from red to blue, could not get my computers (I have a Mac and a PC) to recognize the drive, sounded like the drive wasn't powering up...
I replaced the Acom drive enclosure with a new one (CP Technologies). I don't know if the drive enclosure or power supply was at fault-- but it wasn't the internal drive. Plugged it in and amazingly all my data was back. For thirty bucks it was far less than sending out the drive to a 'data recovery' expert!
