Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

When I try and unmount my iomega portable hard drive it insists that it is busy and, therefore, can not eject. This is a problem because the only way I can remove the hard drive is by unplugging it, since it will never eject the drive off of my computer. I have no clue why.

Usually when you can not "unmount" the external device it is because the computer sees it as still running an operation. If it is the backup software you may be able to go into Task Manager and stop the process, the unmount the device. Also, if it is the backup software, I would reinstall it,

hi there, i to have an iomega external drive, have you tried to disconnect the cable, i.e.. the usb cord and restarting the computer and pluging in the hard drive itself back into the usb slot.....if yes i am thinking, another thing is, wha operating system are you using, if it is vista and you restarted the computer with it pluged in you must restart it without the iomega plugged into the computer, when an external drive is plugged in and the system resatrts vista recognizes it as an internal drive and tries to reboot from it....i am not sure why vista does this, it happens to me and microsoft says it's a protection thing, from hacker hardware components......so all usb things should be replugged into the computer after vista has started with just the regular things...microphones and such are ok....just things with mass storage are what need to be unplugged and replugged into the computer after reboot....hope this helps....shia

I have plugged in my iomega portable hard drive and want to backup my computer. How do I do that?


If the drive connecting through a USB port you will see a new drive letter under my computer. You should use the backup utility of your computer to backup your PC onto the new drive or selectively copy documents from your computer's hard drive onto the portable hard drive.

I am trying to install an Iomega USB 2.0 portable hard drive. The drive icon does not appear on MY COMPUTER. It shows "Solutions" (name of the disc) drive D. Think everything is in place. ...


Go to start, run, msconfig and then select normal start up so eveyrthing runs when your computer turns on. With windows xp you should not at all have to install usb 2.0 drivers.
