Question about Acomdata (HD160FE5-72) (HD160FE572) 160 GB Hard Drive
Does the Hard Drive have an internal fuse? I have a light on the power supply showing it is on, but the device does not show up in "My Computer" when I turn the switch on. The power light on the drive failed some time back, but the device still worked until today. I noticed this problem just after I restored the computer to it's settings two days ago which solved another problem I had. I have tried all of the connections several times, to no avail.
I may have unplugged cords while the HD was on, I admit.

REAL SOLUTION!!!: I had same problem with my 500GB drive. ACOMDATA, which is very rude when yo call them, but what do you do when they don't respond to their tech support e-mail request e-mails. WELL THE FIX: Believe it or not, the USB connector at the back of the drive accepts the connection when its upside down. Please check the connection and make sure it is connected correctly it, my drive is working now, but now it only connects at USB1.1 speed.
ACOMDATA lets the connector hook up backwards, maybe that fried the devices abiltiy to connect at full USB 2.0 speed? ACOMDATA BITES!!

SOURCE: Hard Drive doesn't show up
Try doing flea power & the power cycle.
1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.
And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.
Restart the system & check.
2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.
Restart the system.
If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :
Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.
And delete all references to the external hard drive.
And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB
and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.
After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.
Live, Love, Laugh.

If you have the blinking red/blue light and clicking noise you should try a new AC adapter. I just got the same power supply from a friend's drive and the problem is gone. Drive is back to normal and all contents are intact. Don't be fooled by the green light on the AC adapter. Even though it's on, it might be damaged. I guess my was damaged by lightning a few days ago.

SOURCE: Light doesn't turn blue at all
Plug it into another computer if possible, clear ALL files on it.
You must of been sending something to it when you flicked the switch, they would normally go off straight away.
(Backup on the other computer first)
If this does not work then you may want to see if you can see a usb stick in your USB ports. If you can it's a fault with the harddrive, nothing else you can do.

you might have to log off the computer and log on again with another user. the user that you installed the data under is sometimes the only way to go back and retrieve it. try this first.
