Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive
I am having a problem with my external hard drive. I was in the middle of editing in lightroom last night and all of my pictures suddenly became missing and invalid. I look over and the blue light is flashing rapidly on the Acomdata Hard drive and then I go to explorer and it is no longer in my directory. I cannot get it in my directory no matter what I do. Please help me as I have several jobs that are on here that I need to access.
How do I fix my external hard drive, because one day I turned it on and the drive was fine, the next day when I turned it on, it kept on flashing blue, does that mean that the drive is dead. Please help me with this.

I had same problem of drive not being recognized with my 500gb version. Power supply tested OK but after checking power to drive itself there was no power. Something went on circuit board. The power plug for the HD was tight so being unable to get a standard plug in there I cut the leads and soldered a female plug to the leads, then powered it from my PC. Entered my password and drive mounted normally. Recovered all my files and scrapped the Acomdata enclosure. The drive is still working fine in my old XP PC after reformating it.

Go into Control Panel/System/Device Manager and look for yellow exclamation marks. Delete any you find. Reboot your computer. Connect the external hard drive and turn it on. Let Windows discover it. If it asks for the driver, put in the CD that came with the drive.

I have just encountered the red/blue flashing light on an external Acomdata drive. This appears to be a faulty POWER SUPPLY, because when I plugged in a compatible external power supply from another Acomdata drive the enclosure and drive functioned normally.
