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.

Hi,

From the information provided, it appears to be a direct hardware failure. Verbatim appears to not offer much on providing information on such issues, so it would be safe to say is have it replaced.. I am not 100% sure but some external drives come with a 7 year warranty, you could also try to have your data recovered from a local computer service in your area so you do not lose the data. But, in all it would be advised to replace it.

The drive will not update itself automatically. You will have to download the firmware update and update it yourself. You may also want to get the latest Manager software that is Windows 7 compatible.

Dell 2400 wont recognize harddrive


I don't know how old the Dell is but I have not seen a BIOS setup routine that did not automatically find and recognize a new hard drive for many years. Perhaps the BIOS is the source of the problem.  Did you try the removed drive in another system? Did you check the CMOS backup battery? If this needs to be replaced, it may not recognize much of anything.

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Drive Being Recognized as Removable Disk


Same issue with my 500 GB TFD500U16. A little more description is that my PC is detecting the power when turning on the drive and the HDD itself is spinning up. Also the Blue light that normally indicates HDD activity by turning Red no longer shows activity but just stays Blue. This indicates that the data side of the HDD is not seated properly. Since mine is out of Warranty, I took it apart and found this to be the exact case.
! ! ! ! Please perform this at your own risk ! ! ! ! Especially if your warranty is still in effect! ! ! By loosening the HDD mounting screws inside that will allow the connection to seat properly and data to be seen.

Unanounced system shut down


The next step that I would recommend is to use the Admin Tools in the Control Panel and select Event Viewer. Check out each of the three logs and see which one has an event with the red X at the time of the shutdown. High light it, and you should be able to see what program, if any, caused the problem. That should give you more information that may be more specific and help you track down the actual culprit.
