The Photobank must be formatted in FAT32 to work. If you formatted in any other format, go to http://sdkbase.smartdisk.com/display/2n/index.asp?c=cpc=e72ylkXWR8u0YnrbMviY&cpc=&cid=1&r=0.8182337

You will see a file on the right hand side... It is a short program that will reformat the drive in FAT32. Just follow the directions on the page

Hope this works for you/

What is the largest sd the pb80 will read?


I believe it is 4GB. Another user had a similar question in which he was not able to use an 8GB card but was able to use a 2GB and 4GB one. IF in doubt, the manufacturer will be able to give you this information.

My Macbook no longer recognizes my Firelite Hard Drive


It could be incorrectly formatted, if so you can reformat by using another computer that recognizes it or you may be able to find it on your laptop through a formatting tool. The formatting tool built into OSX is called "disk utility".

Negitive... I had the same problem.  I had to borrow my friends PC to Format!  But guess what!  1 Year Later and with SmartDisk out of business I was able to go back and copy the software!  Sweet! Feel free to use it from my site: http://yardenreport.blogspot.com/
