Question about Acomdata 250GB External Firewire HD 250 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

HD will not start completely...

When the power is turned on all I see is the LED light on the front flash from blue to red, continuously. All I here is the sound that it usually makes when it starts up but then it makes a clicking sound and does the whole thing over again. I am desperate for help, EVERYTHING I have I've been backing up on this thing.

The front LED flashes red & blue when I turn it on. What does this mean?


LED Indicators - LaCie 2big Network
The LED indicators above the drive bays and the front LED indicate drive status and activity.
During Startup
  • Front LED – blinks red/blue until both disks are powered on, then turns solid blue.
  • Rear LEDs – blinks red/blue until corresponding disk is powered on, then turns solid blue.
NOTE: If the device is not able to initiate the boot process following disk startup, the front is solid red.
During Bootup
  • Front LED – solid blue
  • Rear LEDs – solid blue
NOTE: If a disk is failing, both the disk’s corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid red.
During RAID Synchronization
  • Front LED – solid red
  • Rear LEDs – The LED corresponding to the original disk will be blinking blue and the one being synchronized is blinking red
  • Once both disks are synchronized, their corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid blue.

My external hd blue light just flashes and i dont have access.


Do you connect via USB or firewire? Can you / have you tried another connection method?
Does it sound like the disk is spinning normally, or is it making a heap of clunking noises or not spinning?
The most common problem (assuming it has power, which it obviously does because it has a blue light), is the USB cable. Do you have another that you can try?
Let us know how you go with that and we'll continue...

LED light has gone out


Lights up blue when the Drive is powered on. Flashes red when reading or writing data. It was just stuck between color as it does not flash green,red-blue make green. Contact the company and see if it is under warranty, if not see if they will send you a new light, because
if it is not under warranty,it does not matter if you open it.

All that is inside is a hard drive, chip board. The light plugs onto the chip board same as a fan plugs onto a motherboard. I hope this helps you and it is under warranty,or at least they send you a new light if not.

The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

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!

Flashing led light on my hard drive


well the best thing i figured out to do was to purchase a new case. i think the case burned up. i pulled the hard drive out and hooked it up to another drive so to see if it would work. the drive works just fine in the other device, so i ordered another case.
