Worst support on this device ever

S. Bowen, Amazon
18 October 2014
  • Summary: Worst support on this device ever. Don't buy it. When I moved I lost one box of my office supplies which contained the external power cord for this device. SmartDisk.com is not around to find the specs on the device which happens to contain downloaded photos that I cannot access anywhere else.

Great Product until it crashes

Foto Gato "critical amateur photographer", Amazon
4 March 2009
  • Summary: I have had the FLBUSB80-C model for 2 years. It worked fine with my desk top PC, several laptops and my Epson P3000. Then, recently I plugged it into the USB port and got the message that the unit isn't recognized. It had been sitting undisturbed on my desk since its last use.

DON'T BUY SMARTDISK PRODUCTS

Kari "EMNMSage", Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: Bought the FlashTrax Media Player. After a power outage the hard drive was fine, but the main computer would not recognize the drive. We were only three months over the one year warranty, and even though we would pay for the repair they said they wouldn't touch it after it was out of warranty.

Mac User Warning

A. Ross, Amazon
28 February 2008
  • Summary: As others have written, the entire SmartDisk USB line doesn't work properly with Mac laptops. I got one and it works fine with my wife's PC laptops, but won't even boot on my PowerBook G4.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

  • Summary: Unfortunately, I was sadly disappointed in ths device. The device itself installed alright and seems to provide the back-up storage I needed, but the actual LCD screen on this device is worthless!!

Drive failed in less than one year

Joe E Dee "Language, Food and Tech Nut", Amazon
4 January 2008
  • Summary: Although initially I was pleased with this drive, it has since failed -- dead and unrecoverable. Not what you want in a backup drive, huh? Other reports of other SmartDisk FireLite drives doing this as well have made me promise never to buy another product from this company.

Serge Bobroff, Amazon
10 August 2007
  • Summary: i got two of these inexpensive drives. they are cheap!!! both of those work on and off on an ibm laptop. never worked on an imac (2007). bought those for a friend and my daughter so they back-up their data/photos/songs ... big mistake, both (both! what are the odds?) are terribly unreliable.
