Where can I purchase the cord for my FWFL40-N to be used with a MacBook Pro?


I have a firelite USBFLB60 60gb. My cord broke, so I just ordered "Cable Wholesale USB Type A Male / Mini-B Male Cable, 5 Pin, Black, 1 ft" from Amazon for very cheap. I think that is the correct adapter, and I imagine it would be the same for yours.

It seems the new macbook pro does not support the firewire connector. Is there a different wire available? It looks like the macbook pro has a firewire connection but it is much smaller than the original...


The problem lies in your cable!

The new macbook pro still uses firewire and will be compatable with your drive. It just uses a 4-pin instead of a 6-pin connector. You can get an adapter or new cable that goes from 6 to 4-pins.

They did take away firewire from the new line of plain macbooks though (shakes fist at steve jobs)

My smartdisk firelite does not appear anywhere on my computer


Hi,

Sounds like you have a hardware failure either in the drive enclosure or the hard drive itself.

I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the smartdisk shell that is damaged.

Take the Smartdisk unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.

Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

Called Verbatim support and they said it is a power issue. They will send you a USB Y cable to get power from both USB ports. Hope it works.

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)


If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.

PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.

Firelite hard drive won't mount on a Macbook


Sounds suspicious, have a look at other world computing, they have all sorts of work rounds for apple limitations. Have you looked in the disk utility to see if it is there? if so run repair and permissions.
