Question about Acomdata E5 HD320UHE5-72 320 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I am having trouble accessing my Acomdata hard drive. My computer recently broke, and i'm trying to gain access to it from another mac, i've successfully installed the secure login, but i can't figure out how to get the hard drive itself to install, it used to pop up in the devices section along with "CD Part" when it was plugged in on my old mac.

Hi,

No ned to check in that.

The external hard drive can be fomatted by : 

Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

In that select the format option.

But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

Use the full format option.

Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

Then you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

You need to do a firmware flash. It worked for me. Here's the link to the fix.

my final solution was to remove the drive from the housing and install it as a slave in the main case. The computer is operating Windows XP and instantly recognised the drive. Works fine, all of my data is there. No problem now. This approach will not help laptop users but they might try removing the drive from the ACOMDATA housing and installing it in another housing.

If you have the blinking red/blue light and clicking noise you should try a new AC adapter. I just got the same power supply from a friend's drive and the problem is gone. Drive is back to normal and all contents are intact. Don't be fooled by the green light on the AC adapter. Even though it's on, it might be damaged. I guess my was damaged by lightning a few days ago.

SOURCE: red and blue light alternately blinking. What can i do.

Remove the drive from the enclosure and either install it in your machine as a slave or you will need to buy a new enclosure and put the drive in it.

Retrieve information from external harddrive


You did not say if the external drive has died or malfunctioned. If you cannot plug the drive in and access it (My Computer on Windows, select the external drive), (On a Mac working drives automatically mount on the desktop, which Windows isn't smart enough to do.) Macs have a disk utility in the utilities folder (makes sense huh?) on Windows IF the drive shows up in My Computer you cam right click on it's icon and select Properties, then select tools and do a disk check. Once the drive is usable again just find the files you need and drag them to the main drive somewhere, or simply access them on the external drive without dragged the files over to the other drive.

Hi, my macbook stopped reading my HD and I was wondering how I can get my files off the HD and back them up on my computer


First determine if problem is with your macbook or the drive. Does the drive work on any other computers? If not, then the problem is either the drive or the Acomdata enclosure holding the drive. You'll need to get a usb HDD dock, extract the harddrive from your Acomdata drive and plug the drive into the HDD dock. If your mac is still unable to read the drive, the drive itself is probably not working anymore. If you're a novice and have never attempted data recovery before, I would recommend a data recovery service if it is important that you recover your files. If the the problem is with the drive, there may still be a good chance your files can be recovered but only if you know what you're doing. You don't want to run the risk of ruining that chance and attempt this yourself if you don't have the proper tools or knowledge.

the hard drive may be dead.

stores like best buy offer services of data retrieval, although success is not 100% guaranteed, and these services generally are not cheap.

Once you try to access the drive from MAC, the windows partition would have got damaged...
The windows partition information would be lost...
so in order to access the HDD back in windows O/S, you need to reformat the drive...

Drives that are formatted for Mac o/s will not be able to access by Windows o/s and vice versa...

so try reformatting using the disk management tool utility available in computer management and try to access the drive...
It would help...!!!

Can't access the files anymore. how can I retrive them?


If the hard drive itself is damaged, your files may be permanently lost. There are companies that will attempt to recover your files from the drive for a fee... that usually involves sending them your drive with pre-payment. They will often disassemble your drive in a clean-room environment and transfer your disks to another identical drive then try to access the data. If the disk surfaces are damaged, files on the damaged areas are usually not retrievable...

If you purchased the new case, as the company recommended, then properly moved your drive into the new case, it is likely that you will have to resort to the recovery scenario above.
