Question about SmartDisk FireLite 60 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

All Information No Longer Available

I have been using the SmartDisk Firelite External Hard Drive and been loving it. Until today when I plug it in it shows that it is connecting by lighting up and it shows a hard drive on My Computer. However when I click on it, it asks me if I want to format it. I have lots of information on it, have I lost it all? What can I do?

My firelite use to show up as firelite, now it showing up as the d drive and wont open. Its also asking me to format it in order to open, what should i do?

Junk it - the controller inside it has failed and the pc no longer recognizes it as a external disk and that is unfixable.

What external power does SmartDisk FireLite FWFL120-N take?

Many USB power supplies will have the right plug. I picked one up by buying a cheap USB hub, What you want to look for (most likely on the bottom of the power supply) is VOLTAGE Output: 5.0 VDC, POWER Output: 1.0 amp or (1000ma) and the center hole is the positive side. I have even seen some BluTooth earpiece charges that supply what you need.

Hope that this will help.

infected with virus, and corrupted it. There's no other
way but to reformat your smartdisk.
