Hi,

If the cable does not extend far enough then please use a USB extension cable to connect it.

On my smartdisk firelite the conection that excepts the usb cable has broken. I need data thats on the hard drive how would I get this info off the firelite?


you can open the case and remove the hard drive and install it in a new external usb case for it.
you can find out what type of case you need after you open it. it could be either a SATA connection or IDE.
If it is a SATA and you got a SATA cable/power you could also just install it directly into your computer and grab the files you need.

No computers will recognize my externaml Hard drive. Its model number is usb160. whenever i plug it in to anything, all it shows is a flashing blue light. Can you please help?


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

When I plug in the usb connection for my smartdisk firelite 30 gb, it is not being recognized by my pc


I am sure tha that you have verified that the FireLite has power and the USB connectors are secure both at the Firelite end and the computer end.

If all that is in good order, then you can follow these instructions.

When you plug in your drive you need to do the following to see if the drive is connecting to the computer.
Right Click on "My Computer"
You will get a menu, chose "Manage"
You will then get a Computer Management window.
On the left side of the window will be a menu.
Under the Storage section, chose "Disk Management"
This will open in the right side of the window and will show you your main hard disk, CD-Rom disks and any other disks connected to your computer.

If you see your Firelite hard drive, then it is connected. The drive may need to be formatted. This window should tell you if that is the case. If you see the firelight and it shows that the disk is unformatted, you can right click over the large section on the lower left window which is located to the right of the smaller area that describes the disk. You will get another menu that will allow you to formate the disk. You can also assign or change the drive letter assigned to the Firelight using that same right click menu.

I hope that you have found these directions helpful. Please contact me if you need clarification on any of the instructions I have written here. If the Firelite is not visible on this Manage Computer Window, then you may have a defect with your Firelite Drive.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.


Thank You,
Brian

When i plug it in it doesnt recognize it and i cant get anything to open


Hello,

There are several thing to try, first make sure all the cables are connected properly. If your firelite is the small size that fits in a shirt pocket it may have two connections at either end, make sure all ends are plugged in, if it's a full sized drive it will have a USB cable and a power cable,ensure both are plugged in and the light is on.

Once you have done this Right-Click on Computer or My Computer and select Manage. In the window that comes up you will see Disk Management, select it and wait a few seconds then look through the right hand side. The first drive listed will likely be your boot drive. If it shows up there but is unallocated report that back. If not take it to the PC store nearest you and ask the technicians to move the HDD in the firelite to a new shell for testing, if that works buy the new shell.

If neither of these works the drive may be damaged, if you need the files that are on it and it seems to be damaged, report back here with your Country, State and City and I will locate the nearest Data Recovery pro and refer you in.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

Need drivers


Below is the link for the FireLite 160GB portable HD. Drivers are only needed for win98. 2000/xp/vista are plug and play. The manuals are included at this link.

http://www.verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?part_number=firelite+160gb+usb&x=56&y=11

Additionally, there could be a problem with power supply. A switch is on the back...USB or EXT. EXT is for an external supply. (http://www.verbatim.com/products/detail.cfm?product_id=38819801-1143-3415-5FE3682C49A8E37F&cat_id=3883B708-1143-3415-5FB9F3C74069A098) USB is naturally for a USB cable. Clicking might indicate low power when using USB. Switch to the external adapter or get a USB cable with two connectors for the computer (the extral cable draws more power),

good luck.
