First connect your FireLite USBFLB40 to another computer.Then if it is still not recognized by computer then you need to take it to nearest harddrive recovery center.
But if it is recognize by another computer then your harddrive is working fine.
Also change usb cable and check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I need to locate a mother board for a firelite model #USBFLB40-C any suggestion? Or where can I get a new USB power data plug soldered on the old board? Thank you.


Yes I would take the Harddrive out of the SmartDisk FireLite external harddrive, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Looking up reviews just now I know that it's a laptop sized harddrive that's inside.
(The Harddrive inside is 2.5 inches across in width. 2-1/2 inches)

I don't know however if it is an IDE or SATA unit.
But you will know once you get the case open, and view the Harddrive inside.

One example of a 2.5 IDE external enclosure,

One example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

My external firelite model #USBFLB40, stop work today, i tried in other laptoop, and its work but after i disconnect, i want to used it again, and dosent work, ether my lap, nether the other lap... ...


1. It may be due to the electronics in the USB case.
You can purchase a new case and install the hard drive and connect to the USB port to your laptop/PC.
If the drive is not seen after this then the drive itself may be damaged.
If you disconnected the USB drive without "safely removing it in Windows it may have damaged the hard drive controller.

I cannot have access to my FireLite Model #USBFLB40 .I get error


Try updating Windows first.
Next update your drivers for the device from the company website.
Restart your computer without the device plugged in.
After all is loaded, try plugging it in again and see if Windows will pick it up.

Hopefully this will help.

Firelite usbflb40-c USB device exceeded power limits of hub port


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most portable / external hard drives (though not always)
A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability
2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)
3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.
4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply
Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.
5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again.
If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues carry on reading.
Go to your control panel and then administrative tools, select Computer Management.
Now select Disk Management and expand the window.
Your drive should be listed here, if not then you need to check your computer hardware has not got any issues before proceeding.
If your drive is listed and says healthy then right click on it an select Properties, click Tools and then Error Checking, Check now, tick the two boxes and then Start.
This will attempt to fix most minor / common errors on the drive. It may also ask you to restart which is fine. Allow it to finish its work or you could corrupt the drive. If all went well you should be able to use it normally again.
If you drive was listed but did NOT say healthy then right click and select Format. Choose NTFS as the file system and do not tick any boxes you do NOT want quick format. Again start and let it do its thing. When it is done restart your computer and you should be good to go.
If you still have problems with the drive you might want to look at other areas.

Smartdisk Firelite model USBFLB40-c - not recognising - stored data recovery


Most likely the vacuum and not the ants. The vacuum could have given it a dangerous charge or vibration. You may need to extract the drive from the enclosure. It possible ( hopefully) that the enclosures bridge board failed instead of the drive. When you extract the drive, you will see....its construction is made well, and can stand up to crittters..


keep me posted.
