It could be defective cause you might have taken the stick off while it was loading or if not you can plug it again and try opening it through My computer/ Removable disk:

    The problem might be with your usb port itself. Try to have it checked.

Plug it into the computer via the USB cable that should provided in the box. There should be instructions in the box telling you this however.

Hi, I have two Verbatim Smartdisk external drives (Firelite Model No. 47551) that we were using as a backup medium. They have been replaced by larger RDX drives but I would like to use the Verbatim...


If you did not receive a driver disk with your Smartdisks when you purchased them than you do not need to install any drivers. However, depending on which windows operating system you are using, your smartdisks may not be compatible. What you should do is go online to the Verbatim website and see if your model is compatible with the operating system you are using.

MY COMPUTER DIED. HOW DO I TRANSFER THE FILES FROM MY VERBATIM SMARTDISC FIRELITE 160 GB, USBFLB160' TO ANOTHER COMPUTER? THANKS...........................JOHN NICKERSON


It depends on how you copied your files to the SmartDisk.
If you used the "normal" method of copying files/folders in Windows, then just connect it to the new computer.
If you used some "backup" software from Verbatim to write "backup" files,
then you'll need to install that software on the new computer,
in order to retrieve from those "backup" images.

A friend formated my Photobank PB40 and now It will not recieve the photos when I try to download them, what can I do


You cannot reformat using Windows or your card reader will not longer work. You need to use the Fat32 formatting tool. It's still available on the Verbatim website (They bought SmartDisk)
http://www.verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?open=Downloads
Select-Hardware Storage-Portable Drives. You should see a heading on the right for Downloads. Select the Verbatim Fat32 download tool. Download the tool. Connect your PhotoBank to your computer with the mini-USB cable and then run the Fat32 tool you just downloaded. Follow the prompts to reformat the PhotoBank. Your card reader and hard drive will be good as new.

Verbatim portable hard drive not recognized by XP - works in 2000


Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.
