Acommdata 250 problem

Hello,

never used the system before. connected it to my computer, and an f-drive shows up, but when I click on it it asks for a disk to be inserted into the CD Drive-F. I only have an CD Drive-E where the cd's go into. I have vista (headache). I cant format the system, I cant add anything to the system. In properties it says 0 free space and 0 used space. What do I do?

Solid red light. Does not show up on my computer.


Dose it show up as drive letter E:/ underdevice manager in disk drives?(Check out:right clicking my computer icon onyour desktop,select disk manager)
If so,try right clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'llget the same results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on yourdesktop and selecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use toassign a drive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.
How about asking you to format it before you can use it?Then you can recover data from hard drive with datarecovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.

Hello, I bought a 250 wd and it is not recognized on my powerbook g4. I have a USB 2.0 cable. Can you help? Also, it does not show up on desktop or on Disk utility.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover your files. get the data recovery program from

My Verbatin 320gb hard drive works perfectly fine with my macbook pro.. However, if i plug it in to my windows vista pc or my ps3... it just doesnt show up. ODD.


do you hear it connect through the speakers when you connect via USB? If you do then click start > right click on computer and click manage. click on disk management and see if you can see the 250gb hard drive. if you can, then right click the drive and click change drive letter, if nothing is in the box indicating it has a drive letter assigned then click on add and choose a letter, if you now see the drive when you open explorer but cant access it then the reason it isnt showing in windows is probably because you have formatted it as a mac filing system.

Please check if your HDD is visible in storage management. You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group view and modify most properties and perform most computer-management tasks.

To start and use Computer Management on the local computer:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.

    The Computer Management window for the local computer is displayed. "Computer Management (Local)" is displayed at the root of the console tree.
  2. In the console tree, expand System Tools, Storage
Then check if your USB HDD is visible under one of next options. This is for windows XP.
If it will be presented there try to right click on this drive and format hard drive. Also please recheck your jumper position. This picture might be very useful c33351b.gif

Computer won't recognize (Vista)


Hello,

First of all make sure that the USB port that you are

using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and

not USB 1.0.

Also if it came with an external power, connect it to

the external power before putting on your PC.

This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is

lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not

be enough to power up your USB Drive.

After making sure about this, power up your system,

and plug the harddrive, then Right-Click on my

computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk

Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should

see ALL the drives installed on your system,

including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is,

try and locate the one representing your harddrive,

and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter

and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter

(i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your

system, and click on OK.

This should make your harddrive to be detected

automatically.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

You don't say which version of Operating system you are using. My thoughts are to first go to "my computer" and see if your drive shows up there. If not, get to disk management and see if it shows up there. The crash possibly could have messed up your external drive, and now it needs to be initialized and/or formatted.

External Hard Drive connected but hidden !!!


Connect it to your computer.
Right click on my computer and select Manage
On the left side click on Disk management.

Now on the right side, look around and see if you spot the external drive there.

What do you see there?

Also look into device manager, then look for anything with ! or ? yellow marks.

Hello, I have a LaCie 250GB Hard Drive and it´s not being recognized by my PC. I have Windows XP SP3. What should I do?


All brand-new hard drives are sold unformatted and thus don't show up in Windows until they've gone through the formatting process. To get up and running, connect the drive, boot your PC, and at the Windows desktop right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage. Click Disk Management in the left-hand tree, and every drive connected to your system will show up. Simply right-click your new drive and select New Partition. Then follow the steps to get your drive up and running.
