If you chose Quick format, then less than 2 minutes. However, if you didn't check the box, it will take approx 1.5 hours.

I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

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.

Can not formate a zip disk due to losing the file to help format


You can download drivers from IOMEGA's site:
https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/iomega_na_en.cfg/php/enduser/cci/subproduct.php?p_prods=1&p_pv=1.1&prod_lvl1=1

The drivers should include software that will allow you to format your Zip disks.

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.
