Leave it connected to your computer and try a restart. If the folder is still showing as empty, power down the computer then disconnect the external drive. Power on the computer and connect the external hard drive to a different usb port. I had this exact problem with a 1000 Gb external drive that was full of movies and music. I thought it had all been lost .. After 2-3 days and repeated attempts of restarts and power-downs/different usb ports it suddenly was recognised again and has worked perfectly since
I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.
It has a very odd plug so it will be more difficult to find. (meaning you will not be able to get a universal replacement at Radio Shack, for example). I would send a note to Macally on their web site and inquire about a replacement
What is this?? Is the drive internal, or by the blue light I assume you mean it is external. Is the blue light really all that nessesary? If you need it to shine (and I assume you just WANT it to shine 'cause it's PRETTY) then try installing any software that came with it, and by the way, what brand is this?
Jm, Unhook the drive from the computer turn off the drive and turn-off the computer. After about a minute plug the drive into the computer and turn it on, then turn the computer on. That should help find the drivers. If not post back any errors.
