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! :)

How to take apart a gdhdu hard drive


Not a good idea. With the correct screw drivers it can be done. WHY? there is nothing to fix, and most likely it will be useless when you finish.

My iomega 250gb external hard drive will not open because of an inpage operation can anyone help???...


I am sure that you have unplugged the external drive and tried it again. Have you tried it on a different system? You can install the drivers to another computer and see if that will resolve the issue. If it does, you will need to uninstall the current drivers on your PC and then reinstall them. Does this Iomega have a bus connection. Not all bus connections load the driver automatically. You may have to go to Iomega website and get the driver. Then you just have to get rid of the one that you have (may be corrupted) and install this one.

Hope this helps you solve your issue.

At the Iomega support site, you'll also find downloads, but Windows should recognize the drive automatically.

Just bought a maxtor external hard drive 160gb. just plugged it in and computer recognises it, but what do i next? Ideally i would like to set it up to back up my pc once/twice a week. Help


Ok, you bought the hardware, now you need a software to do the backup. There is a freeware to download in the next link. You can buy one if you prefer, either on the Internet or where you bought your external Hard drive. But, do some research on this one, and you will see that it is secure.

I had a hard drive crash a while back so I had to install a new one. I don't remember what to do next to retrieve the info from my iomega usb hard drive. I am sure the hard drive is a 500 GB desk top


You need to re-install the Iomega backup software on the new hard drive, so that it will see the backup files on the external hard drive.
