Hey there not sure if both usbs on this dual cable are to be plugged into my PC. The drive keeps flashing a blue light but my computer is not recognising it.


Hi,

In most case's only one USB needs to be connected, but you need to load the driver for it from the disks which you would have received for it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Jason

Firelite makes clicking sound and light on top pulses on and off


Sorry but your device has had it, with a bit of knowledge it may be posible to reove your files but you need to connect the hard dive out f its device housing directly to a computer.

How to backup your computer onto a firelite hard drive


VISTA: Hit the flag and go to computer. You should see the hard drive then if it is plugged in.

XP: Hit start and go to my computer and you should see the hard drive then if it is plugged in.

If this doesn't work try another USB slot for the dard drive. Some of your USB slots may be defective.

Need drivers


Below is the link for the FireLite 160GB portable HD. Drivers are only needed for win98. 2000/xp/vista are plug and play. The manuals are included at this link.

http://www.verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?part_number=firelite+160gb+usb&x=56&y=11

Additionally, there could be a problem with power supply. A switch is on the back...USB or EXT. EXT is for an external supply. (http://www.verbatim.com/products/detail.cfm?product_id=38819801-1143-3415-5FE3682C49A8E37F&cat_id=3883B708-1143-3415-5FB9F3C74069A098) USB is naturally for a USB cable. Clicking might indicate low power when using USB. Switch to the external adapter or get a USB cable with two connectors for the computer (the extral cable draws more power),

good luck.

It needs to be inspected. Your hard drive might have had a head crash which is what the clicking noise your hearing could be.

Intermitant power


You are describing the symptoms of a classic cable short. My guess is the power plug cable on the A/C power adaptor or the socket it plugs into is damaged. Try holding the plug still and wiggling the power cable back and forth, chances are that will recreate the problem. -If you have basic tools and solder experience you can purchase a replacement plug, cut the old on off and attach the new one. -If you don?t have the time or inclination to fix it you can just purchase a replacement power supply. If it doesn?t appear to be the power (or if you?re not using the A/C power adaptor) it may be the USB cable or its socket. -Try a new cable. -Try a different USB socket; they are surprisingly easy to damage. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
