Question about Avastor HDX-800 400 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Avastor HDX Portable HD drive just crashed. I had it connected to my Mac, and when finished using it I wanted to eject the disc but it wouldn't, whatever i tried. So i disconnected it anyway. But now both my macs can't make the connection to the drive anymore, it just won't show. I restarted the computer, I disconnected the drive from the power etc. Nothing seems to work. Is this something that can be fixed or is the drive dead now? Hope you can help! Cheers, Elisabeth

I have an avastor hdx -400 20gb external hard drive. No usb port! Just firewire.How can I connect the avastor to my pc from firwire port to usb port! Jeremy

Looks like a simple converter would do it. Might want to look into possible performance loss with it, though.,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1680&bih=939&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=9131055957012417894&sa=X&ei=11AtTs3kD8ecgQe4ldWfCw&sqi=2&ved=0CGwQ8wIwAQ
