Acomdata external hard drive model: phd 100u2e-54

Hi there, I am having some problems with my hard drive. It was working fine and then I was having some problems with my computer while it was plugged it. The computer froze, so I manually turned it off. I hadn't safely ejected the hard drive. When I turned my computer back on and plugged in the hard drive, the hard drive (g drive) no longer appeared with the name I have given it, but rather with g drive. When I click to open, it asks if I want to format the drive. Under properties, it says that the drive has 0 bytes of used space and 0 bytes of free space. I don't understand what is happening?! Is everything lost? Is there any way of recovering the data that is in there? I would really appreciate any help!!! Thanks!

    P.S. The light in front of the drive is red far more than usual. It is usually blue most of the time.

    I have the LaCie 250GB I was having trouble with my computer and the external drive disconnected and stated that it had been removed unsafely.  I have plugged it back into my MacBook (OS X version) and it no longer connects to my computer.  It used to just pop up and now it doesn't.  The Blue light is on and it appears to be working.  I have tried both the USB and the FireWire cords.  Help!!

Hi, Below is a copy of suggested solution to a very similar problem at > http://www.fixya.com/support/t178589-maxtor_external_500_gb_hard_drive 1. "Is the data recoverable?" Yes but the manner by which it can be recovered can be either very expensive (their are firms whose specialty id data recovery) or none at all if you do DIY (do it yourself) or worst case not economical reasonable but recovery possible. I would assume that your would want to try DIY. 1.1 Run diagnostic on the external drive using scandisk, Norton Disk Doctor, Partition Magic's ChkDsk and/or Check Errors. Recovery can be done using a recovery software such as GetDataBack; or 1.2 You need an external desktop PC, a working knowledge of computer hardware. You have to disassemble the external HD and remove the actual HD. Physicall connect it to the 2nd PC (desktop) as a seconday Master either by IDE or SATA as applicable. If detected by the desktop PC in the bios, you should be able to work on it even if with errors; 1.3 If mechanical problem or otherwise, you may want to check out this posting > http://www.fixya.com/support/t162904-seagate_barracuda_7200_7_st380011a Hope this works out for you and/or give you some ideas. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

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.
