It seems that you will lose your files. These file already
infected with virus, and corrupted it. There's no other
way but to reformat your smartdisk.

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.

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.

Do you want to use it as an external USB hard drive?
If so connect it to a USB hard drive adapter case and connect it to the MAC and either delete the folders and filed OR format the hard disk.

I cant get my firelite smartdisk to come up on my computer. I have been using for about 2 years without any troubles, I have tried another cable, the light is on but still unrecognizable... please help


Hello,

First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.

Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.

This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.

After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the external drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your external Drive to be detected automatically.

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!
