My hard drive is not recognized in my mac. The light is blue, neve turns to green


Have you tried to connect the drive to a different computer? You can also try to open Disk Utility (use spotlight search to find it). My guess is it doesn't show up there which means there is a problem with the Buffalo device. The disk is most likely fine, just the Buffalo casing needs to be replaced.

When I plug my HD in, the blue light comes on, but the motor isnt running.


Have you plugged in the AC power adapter? The blue light means it is connected to the computer but USB power is not enough to operate this drive.

I dropped my drive and now the computer won't recognize it. The blue light is on with the red light. Help!


Sorry to hear that your drive is having trouble. When you start the drive, do you hear it turning?
Is this a external that you can remove the hard drive? You may try to power down the external, power it back up and shut down your computer. The conect the external and turn the computer on.

Let me know if you can hear the driver turning and it you can connect after going thru the process above.

If the light won't blink, there could be problem with the power source. Do scanning hardisk for errors manually ( take off the hardisk from the case, assemble it on other PC Desktop)

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Wont recognize drive


Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.

Worked fine for a year, now not recognized or functioning


I had the same issue- light was blinking from red to blue, could not get my computers (I have a Mac and a PC) to recognize the drive, sounded like the drive wasn't powering up...

I replaced the Acom drive enclosure with a new one (CP Technologies). I don't know if the drive enclosure or power supply was at fault-- but it wasn't the internal drive. Plugged it in and amazingly all my data was back. For thirty bucks it was far less than sending out the drive to a 'data recovery' expert!

My computer has ceased to recognize the drive.


this is cont. from my post on the previous issue.


I went as far as reloading windows on my pc to see if the problem was my pc did not help.
I now have a 500GB exteranl hard drive the pc is working fine with it so I know the problem is in the acomdata drive.

I think the key is a different manufacturer it so far is working fine.
I am bummed out the acomdata only lasted about 2 to 3 weeks before I had a problem or noticed i had a problem. Should I try to format the drive would this help?

Drive NOT being recognized by WinXP


Put your ear to the drive and verify if it is making any strange low level sounds. Check to make sure the usb connection wasnt affected. YOu wont need a driver as it appears to be hardware related. Either the enclosure or drive may be failing.
