Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I plug in my Acomdata 320 GB external hard drive and the blue light comes on and stays on (it doesn't alternate between the red & blue as it did before when it was working). There is no whirring sound from the disc spinning inside and no icon appears on my desktop and I don't know where to find it.

If the drive doesn't spin up, then the housing/controller has probably died. The hard drive is likely okay though. You can purchase empty hard drive housings for around $20-30 and transplant your drive into it. Take the old drive out of the housing first to determine if it is IDE or SATA. If you don't know what this means, you may be better off taking it to a shop to have the drive transplanted. It would take a technician 5-10 minutes to do.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

Hello,

You can remove the hard drive from the case and put it into another, new usb hard drive case. You can buy one for 20-30 dollars. I have seen this many times before. The hard drive is probably okay, but the controller inside the acomdata case is likely dead. Don't worry, just get a new usb hd case.

Hope this helps!

Joe
