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.

Dropped SmartDisk


Depending upon how hard the jar was to the internal mechanism, the data may be salvageable. I would guess that the first problem is broken connections at the USB connector. This case is just snapped together with a laptop drive in it. Carefully open it up and look for anything broken.

Worse case scenerio, you can get an adapter to plug the drive into a standard IDE cable inside your tower system.

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.

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.
