From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)

It's possible to clone to this drive, but over the USB interface, it will be very slow. Firewire would be faster. It's also possible to boot from it, but again, it will be slower than an internal. What you've described, however, IS possible.

Your hard drive encrypts all the data put on it, so you need a password to access it. If you haven't changed anything, the default password should be just the word "password" I would recommend changing that as soon as you get into the drive. There should be a very obvious option in the program once you enter the password for the first time.

Any body out there please help me. i 've I omega eGo 500GB external hard drive not sure but my hard fell on ground. the light and grinding sound is still there but couldn't be recognized by the computer....


Hi ,
Unfortunately , the device is probably definitely damaged .
The only way I can see to try to recover your data is to force the lid of the box ( will be lost for good ) and put the hdd in a new external box or connect it directly to the motherboard inside your desktop if this is what you have .
Good luck !
Best regards

Take the hard disk out of that case, put it in another one and plug that in another pc. If it's the same then the disk is dead and all the data on it is lost. Junk it.
