Firelite USBFLB 160 won't mount

Just got a Firelite USB FLB160. Plugged it in and the drivers load fine, the light on the unit is solid blue. Problem: there is no assigned drive letter so I don't have access to the device.There are no external mounted drives on the system (just a, c and d).

    Tried another PC with same result. Is it under powered? What exactly do I buy? A power supply? A different Hard Disk Drive? I guess I'm not getting what you mean by "buy an new external and put that hdd in new external..."

    Again what do I buy and what do I put into the new external?

The USB plug has loosened itself inside the hardrive how do I fix it?


Look up Verbatim in the phone book. Find their phone number. Speak to customer service and they will repair/replace your unit free of charge, even if you don't have proof of purchase. I know, I just got my unit back, all fixed!

I have firelite external and it's not working. There's light but no spinning sound. what can I do?


This a firewire drive and needs to plugged into a firewire port to spin up. If you do not have a firewire port on your computer (most PC's don't) it will not work. I don't believe a firewire to USB connector will pass enough power to the drive to spin it up.

I bought a verbatim 320 model. The blue light flashes on and off but the usb never loads. I can hear the drive wanted to boot but it just flashes on and off. I'ts able to work in my computer if I keep...


It seems that the disk-drive is "dying".
If it works, at least a bit, copy all the files from it onto your C: drive, or burn the files to DVD-writable disk(s).
Then, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Hey there not sure if both usbs on this dual cable are to be plugged into my PC. The drive keeps flashing a blue light but my computer is not recognising it.


Hi,

In most case's only one USB needs to be connected, but you need to load the driver for it from the disks which you would have received for it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Jason

I hve a Verbatim USB Portable Hard Drive with 160gb/go. Suddenly I notice the blue light on the unit is blinking, and my K drive (Verbatim) is no longer showing on my computer. What does this mean?...


usualy it means that it has an error,try checking that the cables to the drive are connected properly if there all fine try shutting the usb drive off and turing it back on after 3 min.
you should turn your PC off also and restart it.
if that does not work you need to post more information about your PC and periferal devices.
