Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive
I've had this hard drive for a while, and it was working fine.
I tried to access the hard drive, but for some reason, the light does not turn blue at all (it stays red). I tried restarting the computer, hard drive, connecting it to a different USB port, connecting it with a different USB cable that I know for sure is working. Nothing seems to work.
The last time I was able to access it, my husband told me that the hard drive was on (although I'm sure I had turned it off) so he turned the switch off on the back. But next morning, I noticed that the hard drive light was still blue, so I flipped the switch again, but the light was still on and blue.
So I disconnected the USB cable and power cord to make sure it's turned off. After that when I tried to access my hard drive, the light won't turn blue.
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.
