The lead and transformer are over heating and not connecting to the external hard drive device. Does it need replacing, and if so, where can I buy the replacement?


The lead overheating is a bad sign.

Looking for a replacement I found on eBay Three items

This seems to be the going rate for the power adapter.
The whole new drive, with power adapter looks more attractive than the power adapter with the expensive shipping.

The 5v power pin on the AC adapter of my SmartDisk Crossfire external hard drive has been broken. How do I get a replacement AC Adapter?


Take your SmartDisk to any computer-store.

They can open the case, remove the disk-drive,
and mount the disk-drive in a new "empty" external casing,
with a new power-supply.
See: http://www.canadaram.com/3_5_sata_enclosures.htm
for a sample of various "empty" cases, for about $30.

Hi. Years ago I bought a 160gb crossfire hard drive, but did not fit it up, so it has never been used. I am now trying to connect it up and get it working, but nothing happens. Model is USBXF 160, lot no...


Yes. It does need a power supply. I highly recommend not using this product It will work for a while and eventually not be recognized. This drive currently fried on me. If you chose to get rid of it let me know. I need the circuit board from this drive inorder to get files off my fried hard drive.

Ex.hard drive


If the hard drive isn't detected at all by your computer then it may be defective. If you can test it on Linux or Mac and see if those detect it, may just be a driver issue in Windows. You can also try going to Disk Management in Windows and seeing if its there and manually assigning a letter or if that doesn't work you can try a hard drive data recovery program from http://www.stellarinfo.com/download.htm. Hope it helps!

I had this same problem. One option is to open the smartdisk up. It should have a seagate ata drive inside. Attach it to a computer as a slave drive. Your dive will appear as a secondary drive on your computer. you should be able to get all your files off the drive. If your worried about voiding your computers warranty you can buy a usb adapter to make the drive act as an external drive. I highly recommend never using this drive again. I used it as my main hard drive and it fried on me. If you plan on getting rid of this drive let me. I need the circuit board to get my music files and portfolio off my failed drive. Thank you.

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.
