Does it beep? if it does, whats the beep pattern...ie long long short, or short short short

if nothing else, something is causing a short...check the usb ports (real common) the contacts break from wear and short out, have your power supply tested.

I bought a SmartDisk solution for disk backup that is basded on a Firelight Drive and the BounceBack archiving software. I have the BounceBack software configured to take a snapshot of my key C Drive files...


If you're on a network with your workstation, the network administrator does the backup of the server. Yes, you can use as many copies of the firelight as you want.

Adding to ubuntu desktop


it could be that power isn't sufficient on the USB connection. you might need to plug in your AC adapter.

Also this drive has both FireWire and USB ports on it.

To get it working, make sure that the AC adapter is supplying power, and that USB is connected correctly, then re-boot.

Ubuntu should recognize the drive.

Command line tools that may help are

lsusb

this shows which devices are connected via USB to your computer.

dmesg | less

will help you look for the drive's identification and recognition by the computer, providing information such as vendor strings, capacity, and device assignments.

Good luck.

When I plug in the usb connection for my smartdisk firelite 30 gb, it is not being recognized by my pc


I am sure tha that you have verified that the FireLite has power and the USB connectors are secure both at the Firelite end and the computer end.

If all that is in good order, then you can follow these instructions.

When you plug in your drive you need to do the following to see if the drive is connecting to the computer.
Right Click on "My Computer"
You will get a menu, chose "Manage"
You will then get a Computer Management window.
On the left side of the window will be a menu.
Under the Storage section, chose "Disk Management"
This will open in the right side of the window and will show you your main hard disk, CD-Rom disks and any other disks connected to your computer.

If you see your Firelite hard drive, then it is connected. The drive may need to be formatted. This window should tell you if that is the case. If you see the firelight and it shows that the disk is unformatted, you can right click over the large section on the lower left window which is located to the right of the smaller area that describes the disk. You will get another menu that will allow you to formate the disk. You can also assign or change the drive letter assigned to the Firelight using that same right click menu.

I hope that you have found these directions helpful. Please contact me if you need clarification on any of the instructions I have written here. If the Firelite is not visible on this Manage Computer Window, then you may have a defect with your Firelite Drive.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.


Thank You,
Brian

This external hard drive is no longer recognized in Windows Explorer. The blue light is on but all I hear is a ticking sound. Any clues please? It's a Smartdisk Firelight Model # USBFLB60 Many thanks. Ken


It could be that the power supply or USB port is not supplying sufficient power to the drive. That would give the behaviour that you are describing.
