Question about FireLite (USBFLB80) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Im trying to access my firelite external hard drive (model USBFLB80) that has been sitting around unused for a while. I have a new computer, which is a mac, now and only used it with a windows pc before. I lost the installation disk but need to access these files now. my old pc has been reformatted so it has no info on it anymore. do i need drivers or something else to be able to access this, and do i have to access it with a pc or mac?

Hi

A USBFLB80 is not a hard disk controller, it's an external USB hard drive and does not require any driver when used in Windows ME/2000/XP. This device is plug and play in Windows XP providing you have a working usb port to plug it into.

My computer died mid format on a 60gb firelite external. Now that I have it plugged in, it won't recognize it under my computer. Any ideas?


Have you gone into Disk Management to see if it is detected there?
Start | Run | diskmgmt.msc

Check for your drive in the list.

If it is not there, then go to a CMD prompt, and type diskpart
then list disk

SMARTDISK FIRELITE 120 GIG WONT LET ME BACK IN I HAVE ALL MUSIC ON IT


Try to get the drive detected on a different computer and if it does the same then try to connect to a mac computer it will be detected then make a backup of the data and reformat the drive. it will be fine, this is a very common issue with flashdrives and external hdd.
try and let me know.

second solution is run a scandisk on this drive letter detected by windows then try doing the same step said above.

My mac computer do not reades or recognize my external hard drive 60GB smartdisk from firelite


well. Open Disk Utility in the Applications folder under Utilities and see if it shows up and possibly mount it from there. Also open the System Profilier (also in the utilities folder) and check under USB - if that's how it's connected.
