    I have the same problem with no connection and the red/blue blinking light. I noticed the solution as a dead AC Adapter but I can not find one anywhere. I am guessing acomdata is no longer in business as their website will not pull up and their phone # is disconnected. Any help on locating a new AC adapter for this hard drive? It is a Dura Micro Model: DM5127. Thanks!

I have found that this means the ac adapter is dead. I lost one to lightning, was afraid that I had lost 130 Gb of photos, had an extra adapter and everything was fine. The four pin adapter is available through Acomdata but only if you call. Their online tech support is non existent, apparently. They sell them for $22 as opposed to other sources that want anywhere from $99 to $135

Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.

Lost driver & installer


hello

due to the fact that this memory card is no longer available, Kingston does not have drivers fo this card . As a matter of fact SD cards normally do come with drivers , as they are conformed in a way that operating systems recognise them once you plug them into the SD slot

i hope this inofrmation helps you make a decsion

some background on this particular SD memory card you have

SDCZ2-512-A10-KT (Discontinued) Description: 512MB USB 2.0 DataTraveler I write up to 3MBps Discontinued Additional Info: DataTraveler I USB 2.0 Flash Drive Write up to 1.5MBps Read up to 6MBps Mfgr's System P/N's: SDCZ2-512-A10 (Kingston) Form Factor: USB Flash Memory Warranty: 5 Yrs†


here are some solutions .


When the problem occurs is a clue as to the cause.

For example, your response to a memory error message depends on whether:
  1. You have just bought a new computer.
  2. You have just installed new memory.
  3. You have just installed new software or a new operating system.
  4. You have just installed or removed hardware.
  5. Your computer has been running fine and you've made no other recent changes.
UNEXPECTED PROBLEMS

If your system has been running fine, but suddenly starts to produce memory errors, and crash or lock up frequently, the chance of a hardware failure is more likely, since configuration and installation problems show up as soon as the computer turns on. Sometimes you can get memory problems if your computer is overheating, if you are having a problem with your power supply, or if corrosion has developed between the memory module and the socket, weakening the connection.

HANDLING SPECIFIC PROBLEMS

Here is a list of the most common ways the computer informs you of a memory problem.

  1. The computer won't boot, merely beeps.

  2. Computer boots but doesn't recognize all the installed memory.

  3. The computer boots but the screen is blank.

  4. The computer reports a memory error.
    1. Memory mismatch error
    2. Memory parity interrupt at xxxxx
    3. Memory address error at xxxxx
    4. Memory failure at xxxxx, read xxxxx, expecting xxxxx
    5. Memory verify error at xxxxx


  5. The computer has other problems caused by memory.
    1. The computer intermittently reports errors, crashes frequently, or spontaneously reboots.
    2. Registry Errors
    3. General-protection faults, page faults, and exception errors

Plugged in the 1TB WD My Book Essential into my Dell Dimension 3100 running windows xp and the screen goes blue and I get a error stating "Bad_Pool_Header"


here's a solution I found on google:

BSOD the Solution:

Did you install Service Pack 2? Are you now suffering from the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)?. Here is the solution. I have spent 4 days hunting down the cause of my machine crashing and have finally cracked it. Maybe other people have a different cause than mine so my solution may not work for everyone.

After installing SP2 I suffered many crashes. In particular the Screen would turn blue and display a message starting "Bad_Pool_Header". And ending with STOP: 0X000000019....

Then my four day hunt for the cause started.

BSOD Solution
Basically I found two causes of the BSOD.
Cause 1: Corrupted file or folder.
Cause 2: Microsoft Indexing Service

Possibly these two causes are linked.

Solution for Cause 1
Onen up Explore (right click the start button), and expand your directory tree, starting from the C: drive. Click on each folder in turn and see if any cause the BSOD to appear. If so, reboot, and simply attempt to copy the folder, and then delete it.

Solution for Cause No 2
Switch off Microsoft's indexing service. You can do this by clicking the start button, select "Run", then type "msconfig", then select the "Services" TAB, scroll down to the Indexing Service and Switch it off. Reboot your computer, and good luck - maybe it will work, It solved the problem for me.

At first I thought I must have a third party software or hardware conflicting with SP2, but even after I had disconnected the internet, switched off all items in the startup TAB of msconfig, was still getting the BSOD. I tried surface scans, chkdsk, scan disk etc all to no avail. I tried defragmenting the disk, but the frequent crashes may have made things worse.

I discovered the computer was now crashing after about 7.5 minutes of being switched on. It did not matter whether anyone logged in or not.

Finally I went to msconfig (Start Run, MSCONFIG) and switched off "process System.ini files, Load System files, Load Startup Items. And the comuter stopped crashing. So then I added the item back one by one until I discovered the Microsoft Corporation Indexing Service which was causing the crash. I switched it off and switched everything else back on and AT LAST... No more BSOD

Hard drive was working good then just crashed now computer wont


I had a similar issue with a SATA drive i put into an older p4. I suggest you unhook the drive from the cables and reattach it, just to make sure the connections have not worked loose. If they are tight, then you may want to try a different port on the system board. Since I dont know if it is a SATA or EIDE, I can only assume that, based on size, it is SATA. SATA drives have great performance but cheap data cables. Try a different data cable, or a different sata port. If it is EIDE (40 pins) then make sure the cables are all tight, and please make sure that ANYTIME you work on the computer, you have the power OFF and its UNPLUGGED, so that you dont fry your mainboard. In my own case, the data cable was kinda loose, so it would work loose and drop the drive off the system, forcing me to crash and have to fix the cable and restart. I got a better sata cable and have no trouble.

SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2 crashes my system!


Hi marykins,

When you say 'crash' does this mean the system reboots, freezes up entirely, or blue screens?

I've seen similar issues when the USB 2.0 host controller isn't enabled in the System (BIOS) setup. Many devices, such as USB mice and MP3 players and even flash drives, will show up and some will function, but if the USB is required to act as a host controller, devices such as external hard drives and (sometimes) flash drives will either not show up at all on the computer or will crash it.

I'd suggest first looking in the BIOS setup to make sure that both the USB host controller and USB legacy support are enabled.
