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.

Regards
Moses

How to transfer 57 gigs from a mac to firelite xp.

The hard drive maybe formatted in Windows NTFS format and the MAC cannot see this formatted hard drive.
If you only wanr to use this hard drive on a MAN then you need to format this hard drive with your MAC.
If you want to exchange files between your MAC and a PC then you need to format the hard drive on a PC in FAT32. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard disk.

111 GB SMARTDISK Firelite with 107 GB of Free Space... File System: FAT32 which only allows 4GB OF Backup... HELP!!!

In a FAT32 filesystem, the maximum size of a single file is 4.2GB.
It sounds like your backup program is backing up the disk to a single file.
To fix the problem you can either
1) Get a new backup program, or change the settings of your backup program not to create files larger than 4.2GB. Unless I know what backup program you use, I cannot help on this issue.
or
2) Convert the volume to NTFS, following instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307881. Then your backup file can be as bug as the disk itself.

My firelite smartdisk model cord does not fit into my new macbook air. can i buy a cord that has a usb port at one end? thx

The MacBook Air has one USB port. Most computer stores have many different plugs on the other end that will fit your SmartDisk. Most of the SmartDisk units use the mini USB plug. It is the same as many digital cameras use.

Tiger Direct, and MicroCenter also have many different adapters, and adapter kits to use on all kinds of USB devices.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if there are any more questions.

Plug 80 gig Firelite into Mac, nothing happens.

Look up a harddrive/flash data recovery program on google. Run it it should find the files on it back those up then reformat the drive.
