Why does windows media player not recognize my firelite smart disc as a device. my computer recognizes it


Try rebooting your computer with the Smart Disk plugged in. You can also try moving all the contents of the Smart disk to your computer and access from there.

My Macbook no longer recognizes my Firelite Hard Drive


It could be incorrectly formatted, if so you can reformat by using another computer that recognizes it or you may be able to find it on your laptop through a formatting tool. The formatting tool built into OSX is called "disk utility".

Computer not recognizing


There's a fault inside. If you're lucky the fault is in the connector plate so removing the disk and putting it in a pc will allow you full access to the data. If when you do that the disk is still not recognized , or worse, it messes your pc, then the disk is dead and the data is lost.

Firelite makes clicking sound and light on top pulses on and off


Sorry but your device has had it, with a bit of knowledge it may be posible to reove your files but you need to connect the hard dive out f its device housing directly to a computer.

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.

Hard Drive isn't recognized when it is connected to the computer


Sounds like there is an issue with the drive itself. How old is it? it may be that you need to replace it.
