Question about Acomdata PHD060U2E-54 60 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Acomdata external hard drive

I don't see a model number on this drive, but it is red. Really red. Anyway, I plugged it into my Dell Dimension 4500s using Windows XP and right off a little box at the bottom of the screen said that the new device was ready to rock, in so many words. The problem is, I don't see it anywhere when I go into My Computer. And I have no clue how to use it from this point. Thank you in advance for any help.And I have no idea what the model number is, but below it made me choose...so I picked the only one that said USB 2.0. It is really supposedly 130GBs and it's an external one at that.

You won't see a new drive in My Computer until it's initialised.

Right click on My Computer
Click Manage
Select Disk Management (in the left pane)
Scroll down in the bottom right pane until you see your drive.

If you right click on the drive, you should have an option to initialise it. Follow the process through until the end.

Apologies for getting a little vague towards the end, I haven't initialised a drive in a little while now.

Hope this helps!

    Acomdata 1TB external drive


    I have the same exact drive (I'm assuming as it's the same make/size since I don't have a model number) and what you need to do is turn the drive off and let it cool down. The drive is not well vented and it tends to over heat. I would get in the habit of turning the drive off whenever you're not using it because of this problem.

    I lost the power cord to my external hard drive.


    Hi annabel_nyc,

    You need to make sure that you get a compatible power adapter for that model. Most of Acomdata external drives use a 12v adapter, but not all. If you plug the wrong voltage into the drive, you do have the possiblity of frying your external. I'd check with your manual or post back your model number so I can look that adapter up.

    Good Luck

    Running mac osx my acomdata external drive lights


    This is the solution that worked for me.
    Luckily I have another external drive of the exact same model that is working fine.
    I used the power supply from the good working model and plugged it into the bad drive. The bad drive booted right up. Evidently the power supply was the issue, not the drive itself.
    Even though the bad power supply had enough juice to light up the drive, it was not able to make the drive spin correctly.
