Question about Fantom Drives 120 GB Hard Drive
It used to work fine, but now my PC is not able to identify the USB Drive. !!
I already have some important files on it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
At this point i would take the usb drive apart, you should see a regular hard drive in it. if so just set your jumper settings and insert it to your computer. if you still got problems then your drive has crashes on you. you can try at this point some hard drive recovery tools found across the net.
if the drive is too small to plug in then you need to get an adapter usually found at ebay. if this is a pen drive then i would take it out of the case then look for and solder the usb connector as this is the first bad spot to go. anyways, if its a hard drive and works in computer, i would check power supply goin to the use drive, if its good then i would contact the company that made it maybe they will replace the unit. or just buy another one. copy info back over to the new drive. or get a drive just like it and swap them out.

My problem and my solution
-Fantom Drives 200GB was working correct on desktop which runs Windows XP
-Connected it to a laptop which runs Vista and the drive became undecteable by both platforms. It showed up on Vista's device manager for a hot second and then vanished all together.
-Changed the USB cable and still no go
-Finally, I made the decision to void the warranty by opening it and connecting it directly to my CPU and there it all was. 170GB worth of data. Same as what scott201201 is suggesting above.
-Moral of this story...."Backup your "backup".
Good luck techies

If you are running XP or vista, then go to your device mgr and be sure that the USB port is powered on and enabled. Hope this helps...accordianman
