Hi annabel_nyc,

You need to make sure that you get a compatible power adapter for that model. Most of Acomdata external drives use a 12v adapter, but not all. If you plug the wrong voltage into the drive, you do have the possiblity of frying your external. I'd check with your manual or post back your model number so I can look that adapter up.

Good Luck

No, That hard drive is an older kind of hard drive, and will not perform well in a PS3. Also, the specifications aren't listed on newegg, but from what I can tell, it's not a 2.5" hard drive, which will not fit inside the PS3. I listed a few compatible ones below.

If you're using it mostly on a PC then do not format it on a Mac. Format it on a PC

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.

Try taking it out of the casing and putting it into another external hard drive case. That is if you can, if its making a clicking noise it probably means your hard drive went bad or it means its not getting enough power to run make sure all the cords are hooked up tight. I had that problem once the hard drive wasn't getting enough power and i had to mess with it on the inside to make it have enough power. I'm not saying take the hard drive apart im saying take the casing off it and check the inside cords to see if they are tight enough. If that doesn't work leave a message and ill try to help again.

You can't us a transformer. You need a 12 Volt DC. best 2 A. But the plug should be connected correct. DC has a plus and a minus. Reverse that and your drive will never work again.

there isn't any software for a USB drive, the system should just see it just like any other USB drive. Try moving the USB cable to a different port. That fools the system into thinking it a different drive & forces the USB drivers to reinstall.

sounds simple but have you tried moving the USB cable to a different port? sometimes that fools the PC in thinking its a different drive & it reloads the USB driver.

If you can't find a cord, you can just take the drive out of the case & install it in your desktop as a 2nd drive. That way you can get to your files. Also, they make a adapter cable to make it a USB drive, you could try that.

There is no such thing as a recover code, if a drive is password protected. If you have important data on the drive you have to find the password. Perhaps you try all words you used the last 5 years. You did not even mentioned how you did protect the drive. But even the simplest program that encrypted the data, made it impossible to read it as the files should be.
If you did not encrypt the files, the drive operating system is only telling it can't read the files anymore, then you can try a recover program on your PC Try one of these for that: with free trail with free evaluation version
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

If it's your HDD then good luck. If it's not your HDD then give it back. From what I've read formatting and loosing all your data is the only answer.
