If any application such as Disk Warrior is still accessing the drive it will not unmount. The easiest solution is to reboot the computer and the offending application should no longer be accessing the drive and it would be available to eject.

Go to the applications folder and then utilities open Disk Utility in the left box select you firelite and then clcik on the erase tab to your right. You can then select how you are going to format the hard drive standard for using with Mac only machines is Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or if you want to use with both PC and Macs is MS-DOS (FAT). Then name your drive and click on erase. Hope this helps.

Firelite external drive wont read all of new disk


i had a 500 gb pata drive which was read just fine, it's possible that it was just the file system on the drive. if you still have it plug it back in go to disk mgmt and try to format the entire drive with fat32 or exfat, or even ntfs.

I'm having problems connecting FireLite portable hard drives to my mc.


1. Check operating system version sometimes its just the version not all mac versions like externals.

2. Under disk manager if the drive does not appear 9 times out of 10 its not compatable with the os your using.


Thanks

External hard drive does not display icon in My Computer


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.
