I plug my Pleomax drive into the USB port and only get a solid orange light from the drive (no longer blue lights). The computers I use are no longer showing the thumb drive in my computer.

PLEOMAX 5GB Thumbdrive

Do you see a message on your system tray when it is plugged in? If you don't see any message, it means that the drive is not being detected. You can't retrieve any data or files on the thumb drive if it is not detected. Things you can try to isolate the problem:

1. Try a different USB port on your computer. Check if your thumb drive will be detected.

2. Try a different USB device like mouse on your USB port. If it is detected, it means that the problem is the thumb drive. If not, it means that the USB port is not working or is disabled.

3. Try the thumb drive on a different computer.

Hope this helps. ;-)

My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!
