    That didn't help. I'm afraid its physical damage. It worked immediately before it fell, and now it wont show up on the screen. Is there somewhere I can take it to retrieve the data?

Why does windows media player not recognize my firelite smart disc as a device. my computer recognizes it


Try rebooting your computer with the Smart Disk plugged in. You can also try moving all the contents of the Smart disk to your computer and access from there.

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".

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)


If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.

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
