Question about SmartDisk FireLite 60 GB Hard Drive

Backing up my IPod using FireLite

I have previously backed up my IPod using FireLite. Since I have added more songs to my IPod I though that it was time to backup again. When I right click on my IPod in 'my computer' and select copy, then paste it to firelite I get this error message.

Cannot create or replace IPod backup. Cannot find the specified path. Make sure you specify the correct path.

Not sure how to do that - Can you help?

111 GB SMARTDISK Firelite with 107 GB of Free Space... File System: FAT32 which only allows 4GB OF Backup... HELP!!!

In a FAT32 filesystem, the maximum size of a single file is 4.2GB.
It sounds like your backup program is backing up the disk to a single file.
To fix the problem you can either
1) Get a new backup program, or change the settings of your backup program not to create files larger than 4.2GB. Unless I know what backup program you use, I cannot help on this issue.
2) Convert the volume to NTFS, following instructions at Then your backup file can be as bug as the disk itself.

Where did all my disc space go?

Empty your "Recycle Bin" -- it's possible that the files have just "moved" from their original location, and have _not_ really been "deleted".

Or, right-mouse click on "My Computer", and choose "Manage". Click through "Disk Management (local)", and you'll be able to "delete" the partition(s) on the drive, and then "create" a "new" partition, which, of course, will be 100% "empty".

My niece gave us the verbatim usb160 and backed up our files. This was about 2 months ago and I want to backup only the files that are recently added. How do you do this efficiently?

That depends on what software you used to back it up the first time. What you're looking for is called an incremental backup, and should be accessible from the backup program you used previously. The most efficient way to run it is probably to schedule it to be run periodically, and then it will run automatically. For example, in windows xp you use the backup utility found in start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Backup.
You select the files you want backed up, select the parameters for the backup, and this creates a backup job. Then you run that job, either now or on a schedule. You can create various jobs to backup various data, and each can have its own schedule, or be run once. Detailed instructions for doing this in xp are found here, here, and here.
Details of writing the backup to a cd are here.
Another excellent free backup program is Cobian backup, with downloads and instructions available here.
Finally, you may be interested to read this article, which explains many of the terms involved in making backups, and also stresses the importance of organizing the backup data, so that you may easily access specific items when needed.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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.

My SmartDisk 80 gb FireLite hard drive says it is full but it is empty. What could be the reason for this and how would I format it? I use a Macbook pro. I dont want to have to buy a new external...

You will receive an error message when copying a file larger than 4GB to the hard drive if the drive is formatted FAT32. The FAT32 file system has a file size limitation of 4GB. You may also receive an error when backing up to the hard drive using backup software. To correct this problem you will need to format the drive to NTFS. If you are using Windows ME or 98SE, you will not be able to use NTFS.
There are some products that do not support the NTFS files system or changing their file system. If you own a FlashTrax/FlashTrax XT/FotoChute/PhotoBank/USB FireLite XPress, you cannot change the format of the drive to NTFS. It must be kept as FAT32 in order to operate properly. If you are using SOHO NAS via ethernet, do not format it to NTFS. If you have any questions, please contact technical support before you format the drive.

Warning: Formatting a hard drive erases all data from the drive. Please backup any data prior to formatting the hard drive.
To format to NTFS, open My Computer.
1.Right-click on the Verbatim hard drive, left-click on Format.
2.Select NTFS as the File System.
3.Place a check in Quick Format.
4.Click Start.
Once the format completes, you will be able to copy files larger than 4GB to the hard drive.
