SOURCE: smartdisk firelite won't be recognized on desktop-will on laptop

You have not said what system your computers are wroking under I would think your Sony is XP/2000 But the Dell is Win 98 - An I right? IF this is the case it means the drive has been formatted to NTFS which be read only on XO/2000 machines. The thing to do here is to load all your filed onto the Sony Then refomat to 32 bit - this makes a universal device but your Dell if I am right will not see the lappies stuff Come back with more detail

SOURCE: my smartdisk firelite does not appear anywhere on my computer

Hi,

Sounds like you have a hardware failure either in the drive enclosure or the hard drive itself.

I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the smartdisk shell that is damaged.

Take the Smartdisk unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.

Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

I have a charger for my firelite FWFL60-N but I don't know what voltage to use


Power usage is stamed on the case.Don't go over recommended power input.It's also marked on the units power adapter as output.THAT's what you want to find out.Whatever the original adapter says for output on the case,is all that's required to operate.

Need to know what AC adapter to use with my Firelite. Have a number of AC adapters but not sure which one goes with my unit


First ..this is an usb disk ..and usually it does not need an external power supply but in special cases when it is plugged in something it can not sustain it ..i understood it does have a power supply plug ..but ..I repeat ..it should work on the usb alone ..and get the power from it ..
If you experience some issues and need to know if ti will work when you power it external ..the values are written on the back of teh drive ..or near the plug ..You will only need to have the right jack ..and the voltage to match ..beware of any higher voltage ..it may damage it right the way ..

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.

What external power does SmartDisk FireLite FWFL120-N take?


Many USB power supplies will have the right plug. I picked one up by buying a cheap USB hub, What you want to look for (most likely on the bottom of the power supply) is VOLTAGE Output: 5.0 VDC, POWER Output: 1.0 amp or (1000ma) and the center hole is the positive side. I have even seen some BluTooth earpiece charges that supply what you need.

Hope that this will help.

My firelite smartdisk model cord does not fit into my new macbook air. can i buy a cord that has a usb port at one end? thx


The MacBook Air has one USB port. Most computer stores have many different plugs on the other end that will fit your SmartDisk. Most of the SmartDisk units use the mini USB plug. It is the same as many digital cameras use.

Tiger Direct, and MicroCenter also have many different adapters, and adapter kits to use on all kinds of USB devices.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if there are any more questions.

Make sure you are connecting it to a usb 2.0 port. Usb 2.0 will supply the 5v power the device needs. also use the cable that came with the drive. some drives plug into 2 usb ports.

FireLite FWFL40-N (Firewire) External HD wont turn on PC or MAC


Make sure the poer adaptor you use is rated for the same or better in terms of current. The instruction for the drive tell you what this is but for example it may be 5V 500mA in which case you need either the original power supply that is known to be working or another on that has those ratings (it does not matter if the mA or A is a little higher but never lower.

If its not the PSU then by all means dismantle it take the drive out and fit it into a pc to check the drive itself. If the drive comes up OK then you know for sure it is the enclosure and these are now cheap enough.
