Your trying to run your computer off the E drive? You have to completely reinstall the Operating System if you want to do that. I would put a lot of files from My Documents and your Desktop to the E drive. If you want to install programs on there, you have to first un-install them from your C drive and reinstall them on your E drive (there is an option to do that when installing the program. Just change the "C:\..." to "E:\...".

Firelite 49 GB is no longer recognized by my PS3


hi,
it's cause when you formatted the disk, you choose to use ntfs file system and ps3 can only read fat32.
when you format a hard disk or eaven a usb drive you can choose wich fort to use.
there are different tipe, most common are fat, fat32, and ntfs.
most actula operating system uses ntfs, but fat32 is still he more compatible.
reformat your hard drive as follow:
got to "my computer" on your desktop, right click on your hard drive and choose format.
a window should pop up.
under file system chose fat32.
leave untouched all other fields.
you could perform a quick format, but i suggest a full complete format, so leave all untouched and wait till end.
now it should work.
regards,
Paolo.

How to backup your computer onto a firelite hard drive


VISTA: Hit the flag and go to computer. You should see the hard drive then if it is plugged in.

If this doesn't work try another USB slot for the dard drive. Some of your USB slots may be defective.

When i plug it in it doesnt recognize it and i cant get anything to open


Hello,

There are several thing to try, first make sure all the cables are connected properly. If your firelite is the small size that fits in a shirt pocket it may have two connections at either end, make sure all ends are plugged in, if it's a full sized drive it will have a USB cable and a power cable,ensure both are plugged in and the light is on.

Once you have done this Right-Click on Computer or My Computer and select Manage. In the window that comes up you will see Disk Management, select it and wait a few seconds then look through the right hand side. The first drive listed will likely be your boot drive. If it shows up there but is unallocated report that back. If not take it to the PC store nearest you and ask the technicians to move the HDD in the firelite to a new shell for testing, if that works buy the new shell.

If neither of these works the drive may be damaged, if you need the files that are on it and it seems to be damaged, report back here with your Country, State and City and I will locate the nearest Data Recovery pro and refer you in.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

AUTOMATIC BACKUP TO EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE (FIRELITE)


The first thing that comes to mind is the Firelite has become full and can not accept any more backup data.
Delete the data on the Firelite and try running your backup again. If it works then that was the problem.
The backup software should have a configuration setting somewhere that allows it to automatically delete older data and keep it from filling up.
