An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

If your cover is off the Mac tower, it won't start, but the fans run really fast and the red light comes on. The plastic cover needs to be in place so that air flows the way apple wants to avoid overheating. The metal cover may also need to be in place as well.

I work at a school, my computer tech gave me a new superDisk drive. I use it to back up work orders. Now the Icon does not show on my desktop (I use a mac)


By SuperDIsk you mean the removable cartridge drive, right?
The drive itself will not show up on your desktop unless there is an actual cartridge in it.
If it doesn't show up even with a cartridge in it, check Finder / Preferences / General / Show these items on the desktop, and make sure External Disks is checked.

I think you are pushing the proverbial uphill - the Gear tablets are really designed to work with Windows, especially the serial ones.
KB Gear went out of business a long time ago - before 2005. Trying to get a piece of hardware designed for an old version of a different OS is an exercise in futility.
Go buy a Genius or Wacom, throw the KB in the bin...
