What operating system are you using? Have you tried this external HD on any other computers since the problem arose?

I'm thinking it's a corrupted device identifier, but can't make a suggestion until the questions above are answered.

My husband has a 14 year old Dell computer. He purchased an Acomdata external drive around 2007. He is desirous of transferring the data from the internal drive on his old computer to his Acomdata e

He should be able to do that , Doris. Although it may be a slow process. His external hard drive is equipped with USB version 2.0. If his old computer is version 1.0 it may take a while.

    Acomdata HD500uhe5-72 cant be seen . on XP

    Put it in the freezer overnight in a bag. For some reason it might be stuck in a read mode. Just because you did not tell windows to stop the drive does not mean you hurt it. When you go to use it again,
    plug it in and turn it on, you should hear the drive start to spin, if not
    you could shake it and see if it starts. Then after it is plunged in
    and plugged into the pc, start the pc and wait till after windows is up and running, after 3mins, if not seen unplug, firewire and plug it back in and wait a few mins. If nothing, contact the company and see if it is still under warranty. I hope this helps you. Any other questions,please post back,everyone is more then happy to help you.

    Clicking sound on Firewire 250GB

    okay, I had this issue with my acomdata 500GB. today I decided to open up the drive to see if I could remove it and restore the data. after unscrewing all six screws (4 on the front and 2 small ones on the side, you'll need two different phillips, a large one and small one), I looked inside. first I registered the driver inside (it's a Western Digital) in case I needed to get it replaced. sure enough, it was still under warantee, even though the enclosure/driver kit is not (acomdata warantee runs out after a year for this model). but I noticed a slippage on the mangnetic copper film strip right above the USB port entry. it was slightly falling off the edge of the port. so I just fixed it, not thinking much of it, it just didn't "look" right. then I had a thought to plug it back in. driver now works again! I am about to recover my files and then test unplugging it to see if this repair "sticks".

    Acomdata external hard drive


    No ned to check in that.

    The external hard drive can be fomatted by : 

    Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

    Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

    In that select the format option.

    But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

    Use the full format option.

    Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

    Then you are good to go.

    Good Luck.

    Live, Love, Laugh.
