Question about Acomdata (HD250UE5-72) (HD250UE572) 250 GB Hard Drive
Hello, I have a 250 acomdata external HD. Ive had it for 2 years and has worked fine. I unpluged it for a few days and when I went to plug it back in I noticed that the drive was not showing up on my computer. Please help, THANK YOU!!!
I have the 250 GB Acomdata drive. Had the exact same problem--computer would not recognize drive; blue light on drive lit and drive making a slight whirring/clicking noise. I read somewhere that some people that have had this problem have found the problem is with the USB interface between the drive and case, NOT with the drive itself. I took the drive out of its case and installed it in a desktop computer and was able to get all of the data off of the drive.

If you have the blinking red/blue light and clicking noise you should try a new AC adapter. I just got the same power supply from a friend's drive and the problem is gone. Drive is back to normal and all contents are intact. Don't be fooled by the green light on the AC adapter. Even though it's on, it might be damaged. I guess my was damaged by lightning a few days ago.

I had the similar problem; a 500GB Acomdata External Hard Drive (2.5" form factor) was just not mounting to my Intel Power Mac.
The problem was simply the USB Cord that came with the drive... I replaced it and the drive mounted right away, it even activated Time Machine automatically.
I hope it works for you too.
