How do I reformat my smartdisk firelite external hard drive for my new mac?

Go to the applications folder and then utilities open Disk Utility in the left box select you firelite and then clcik on the erase tab to your right. You can then select how you are going to format the hard drive standard for using with Mac only machines is Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or if you want to use with both PC and Macs is MS-DOS (FAT). Then name your drive and click on erase. Hope this helps.

I have a SmartDisk Firelite 80 GB hard drive that appears to not have any more power. (no light or spinning). What is the best way to proceed to recover my data ?

Hi jspurrple. It sounds the board on the external casing. So remove the hard drive from it, and connect it to another computer as a "slave". Then proceed to move your data. In case it's the actual hard drive, it's the voltage regulator ON the logic board. It's a transistor around where you connect the power cable, you just rip it off and it will turn on, but BE **CAREFUL** I do not recommend you doing that if you are not an IT tech. I hope this helps.

How do i order a new usb cord for my firelite 80

On the drive is a label with the voltage AND current requirements for ti.
EG 12V 300mA or similar.

Any universal supply available almost anywhere that meets those requirement will do the job for you. If you can get one with a higher rating on the current eg 400mA as opposed to 300 then that will be better in the long term.

DO NOT apply more voltage though !


It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our expert’s answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.

Thank you

Plug 80 gig Firelite into Mac, nothing happens.

Look up a harddrive/flash data recovery program on google. Run it it should find the files on it back those up then reformat the drive.
