Firestore FS-4 I have 2 Firestore FS-4 units. When I power them on, the screen backlight switches on and so does the fan and drive, but the menu etc doesn't appear. Can't switch of either, except plugging out the battery.

Try a factory reset - it will probably fix the problems you're seeing. These are the instructions I got from Focus Enhancements: FACTORY RESET
a. With the Firestore powered OFF.
b. REMOVE the “battery” and connect the “AC Adaptor”.
c. Press and HOLD down the "ON” and “OFF” buttons for 15' seconds, then release just the “ON” Button.
d. Count to five (5) then release the “OFF” button.
e. The Firestore should be powering back up to the home screen.
(It takes the firestores settings back to the normal setup. This "will not" erase any current footage on the drive) (You may have to re-do current update/upgrade version)

How do i remove parameters from a kanguru 4 g usb flash drive?


Which format fat32 or ntfs make sure its fat32 Indeed, FAT32 only supports files up to 4 GB. I ran into the same problem when copying an ~4.5 GB file to an 8 GB flash drive. There is a quicker solution that doesn't require you to reformat or lose data on the drive, using the command-line "convert" command. Suppose the flash drive is mounted to g:\. Open up a command window (start menu -> run -> cmd), and type: convert G: /FS:NTFS. Personally, I don't need the "security descriptors" on the flash drive file system, so I use the variant: convert G: /FS:NTFS /NoSecurity. The conversion should be very quick, and of course it has the benefit of not needing to move any files off the flash drive (since you don't need to reformat it). Hope this helps.

Hi there, although the led comes and I can hear the disk running on my Samsung G2/640 hard disk; I am unable to view it or use it - PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!


Hi,

If you see power lights but nothing appears on the screen, it could be a "POST" (Power-on Self Test) problem or simply LCD problem.

Here are some steps that you can try.

1. Remove the battery and the ac adapter then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to drain electric charges left from the system. (You may need to repeat this step to get it work.)

2. If above step doesn't work, try to plug in an external monitor and see if you get display from the external monitor. You may need to press the Fn + F10 or F6, depends on the key designed on the keyboard to toggle between displays.

3. If you get display from the external monitor, I'm sure your having problem with the LCD components. In this case, check and replace faulty LCD backlight, LCD cable or LCD inverter. The LCD inverter is often a culprit.

4. Try to reinsert the memory module/s (RAM) of the unit or simply use a good working RAM. A faulty RAM will cause the laptop not to POST.

5. If reinserting the RAM doesn't help, most likely your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

I want to format my 2 T hard drive from NTSF to fat 32 , how to do please help


Ok this fix will erase all Partitions on the drive, Make sure you have all data back'd up.
Open Command:
Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Or Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
You should have a black MS-DOS prompt on your screen. Type DISKPART in and press enter. Another window will open
Type: list disk It will the display list of devices with memory storage. Find your disk, It should be in a Table(kinda). You have to locate it by its size. so look for 1TB(1000GB) In this Example its Disk 2, yours may differ.
type in: Select disk 2
Execute the rest one by one: CLEAN CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SELECT PARTITION 1 FORMAT FS=FAT32 ASSIGN EXIT
Wait for one command to complete before running another
You should be left with a working FAT32 Device :P

The power cord is in an outlet - but no light comes on. I pushed the on switch several times - it appears it has no juice. Could it be the power cord has malfunctioned ?


The Maxtor One Touch has a sensor that will keep it shut off if no power AND USB (or Firewire) is not actively connected. When you boot your computer, the unit will power UP and shut off when you power-OFF or idle your computer.

Your power cord is most lilely OK.....

Unit re-powers after being turned off. Only removing the battery gets it to shut down without re-powering.


When it repowers,is it because when you hold the unit,it repowers? Then once it shuts down put the unit down.

Replacing a broken hard drive


Nope, the C series pre-dates SATA and there is no room for an adaper in the drive bay. Latitudes started supporting SATA in the later D series models. (My D600 was PATA but my D620 is SATA).

There are still plenty of PATA drives available. I recommend finding one with 7200RPM made by Seagate, Western Digital or Toshiba if you can. Hitachi and IBM have always burnt me.

You can always look up your Service Tag at support.dell.com for more details on your system.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

My mac does not recognise firestore fs-4. the Batt was dead but it turns on and stays lit while I have it plugged in to the computer.(ibook G4)


Hi,

if you mean the battery on the mac went dead and now the external drive won't recognize but otherwise acts normally then the formatting on the drive is likely damaged from shutting down in the middle of sommething it was doing.

You two main options you can try. DiskWarrior can be purchased through any Mac store, if it is a simple fault it will be able to repair the logical problems on the drive. If this doesn't work or you'd prefer to have a pro do the work on the drive for you reply back with your location(Country, State, City) and I will point you in the direction of a nearby pro.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Firestore FS-4 does not show up when connected


I own three FS-4 and one of them has the same problem. Two of them connect no problem. The third one says the connection is successful but windows doesn't recognize it. After playing around a bit it appears that I am not getting a good connection with the 6 pin firewire output on the Firestore. I find that with repeated attempts and carefully holding the cable in various positions, I eventually get it (reminds me of analog TV antennas when you have to be in just the right position to get a channel in clearly). The good news is, once it is recognized, it stays recognized until the need for the next download.

So for my unit, I think I simply have a bad jack. Hope this helps.
