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.

Hi, I have two Verbatim Smartdisk external drives (Firelite Model No. 47551) that we were using as a backup medium. They have been replaced by larger RDX drives but I would like to use the Verbatim...


If you did not receive a driver disk with your Smartdisks when you purchased them than you do not need to install any drivers. However, depending on which windows operating system you are using, your smartdisks may not be compatible. What you should do is go online to the Verbatim website and see if your model is compatible with the operating system you are using.

MY COMPUTER DIED. HOW DO I TRANSFER THE FILES FROM MY VERBATIM SMARTDISC FIRELITE 160 GB, USBFLB160' TO ANOTHER COMPUTER? THANKS...........................JOHN NICKERSON


It depends on how you copied your files to the SmartDisk.
If you used the "normal" method of copying files/folders in Windows, then just connect it to the new computer.
If you used some "backup" software from Verbatim to write "backup" files,
then you'll need to install that software on the new computer,
in order to retrieve from those "backup" images.

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.

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.
