Iomega HDD2H Exteral USB/Firewire Drive

Recently the drive just stopped working. It sounds like it does not actually wind up and the Power Supply fan in the back does not rotate.....

This unit has dual 650MB Drives internally that are stripped for Raid.....

Power Supply possibly? If so, where can I get parts for this unit?

Thanks!

Kevin

    I have an iomega HDD2H dual drive that also has a power supply problem. MySunFone power supply lights the lights and fan of the housing but doesn't turn the drives. This has been problematic for months now and finally just quit. What to do?

Exactly right. This has happened to me on two occasions, renew the power transformer and that will solve your problem.

The problem is the external Power Supply, I used an old power supply from a dead LaCie BigDisk (same plug & pinout) and the Iomega Drive is now working fine   ;)

I have a similar problem to dmingo but when I plug in my drive (HDD2H) it imediately powers on but I can't switch it off or access the disks. The external power supply is making a rather odd hissing sound. I've tried other external PSUs and it does the same thing ... it is quite old (I think).
Any ideas?

The power adapter should be AC 120/230V and are you sure its LDHD and not LPHD? either way I would recommend going on ebay and typing "iomega ac adapter" in the search bar and take it from there, see if you can find one or e-mail a few sellers and see if they have one for your model, hope this helps!

Suddenly power failure ,when the power returning the pc switched ON the SMPS fan and PC also not working.


My advise to you is to never turn of your computer!
the constant start and stop put stress on your power supply not to mention dust build up and if not properly cleaned the startup process can cause a short which I've seen so many times.
I have a computer which is 8 years old I never wanted to turn it off but leaving for two weeks vacation I turn it off. On my return the startup it shorted yeah dust build up.I had to replace the power supply, still running now. (A warm drive is a happy drive)

if the cooling fan on your PSU power supply unit does'nt spin when you start your PSU is faulty if it does then
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

Put an extra hd , now cpu fan spins and stops after 1 sec


Disconnect the data-cable and power-cable from the extra hard-drive, and try again. If the problem is the same, then the extra hard-drive, by itself, is not the problem. Borrow a power-supply, and connect it to the motherboard, and see if the alternate power-supply solves the problem.

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.


check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

POWER SUPPLY


Another option you have, would be to purchase an external enclosure for the hard drive and it would then connect via USB cable. These enclosures are usually about $30, and the device works quite well as an external drive as long as you have USB 2.0

This would enable you to access all the information on that drive *and* you could use it as a backup drive for your main hard drive as well.

Good Luck!
