SMARTDISK FIRELITE HARD DRIVE

I have an external hard drive, "smart disk FireLite.  Somehow it seems to be locked and it will not open when I plug it into the computer.  It will not even show that it is connected.  The light indicator on the device is on but that is as far as it goes.  In the past the Norton Virus program would identify it and scan each time it was plugged in.  But not now. How can I fix this problem?  Otherwise, I stand to loose hundreds of files and pictures. Thanks

SOURCE: smartdisk firelite won't be recognized on desktop-will on laptop

You have not said what system your computers are wroking under I would think your Sony is XP/2000 But the Dell is Win 98 - An I right? IF this is the case it means the drive has been formatted to NTFS which be read only on XO/2000 machines. The thing to do here is to load all your filed onto the Sony Then refomat to 32 bit - this makes a universal device but your Dell if I am right will not see the lappies stuff Come back with more detail

Hi,

Sounds like you have a hardware failure either in the drive enclosure or the hard drive itself.

I suspect you may get lucky and find out it's just some of the circuitry in the smartdisk shell that is damaged.

Take the Smartdisk unit to your nearest PC shop and ask the technicians there to remove the Hard Drive and put it in a new enclosure to test it. If it works in the new enclosure, buy the enclosure and your done. If it doesn't work in the new enclosure then you may be suffering from worse issues that will require the help of a pro.

Either way let me know how you make out, if you need a pro for the next step, reply back with you location(Country, State, City) and I will refer you to the closest facility who can assist you.


Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

infected with virus, and corrupted it. There's no other
way but to reformat your smartdisk.
