I have a smartdisk Fire Lite external harddrive - When I plug it into the usb hub the computer does not acknowledge it


Hello

If you power up the drive and you can feel that the drive is actually spinning, a periodic clicking noise is bad news.
Does the computer make a sound when you plug it in, or does it make a sound.

If the computer recognize when you plug it in, but it just not show in my computer, here is how you fix the problem. Go to:

control panel
Administrative tools
Computer management
Storage
Disc management

Now you should see your drive in the schematic below. Right click on it and choose the option to change drive letter or paths. Now just assign a new drive letter to the drive, restart your computer and it should work fine.

Best regards

My external hard drive wont conect to my computer.


Is this a new drive? has it worked before? the usual sequence is to connect the external drive to a power source first, and then connect the usb cables to the PC. IF you know the usb cables are good and have verified that they are connected properly, try connect to a different usb port on the PC, sometimes ports go bad. If that still doesn't work, the most likely the hard drive has gone bad.

Computer suddenly not recognizing relatively new WD MyBook 640GB


Just a shot in the dark, but ..., shut down your computer and unplug the drive. Turn the hard drive off, then back on. Plug it back into the computer and restart. If it doesn't pop up, restart your computer this time with it plugged in.
Is there any noise coming from the drive? Is the green light on the front?
The same thing happened to me and the same drive, but 500gb. I did the above and it fired right back up again. You may have to delete the trial version from the drive if it on there, or from your computer if you had originally installed it.

SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop Drive


Usually this is a problem with the usb port not being able to supply enough power to the drive. Often, units like this will come with two usb plugs on one cable to increase the current supplied to the drive. If the drive has an input for external power (some do, some don't), then using external power would help.

Crossfire 160gb external hard drive.


If the drive was formatted in a newer windows OS and it is the NTFS file system, the Mac OS will only have read access. You can check this by plugging it in and checking the properties. To solve this you can copy your stuff off and reformat in the FAT32 format, you will only lose the security features that NTFS offers.

Dear Crewchief Try deep freezing your drive, really, I mean freezing it for more than an hour, take it out and attach as a primary or secondary slave and see if it cycles up. Sure hope this helps.
