Use a third party tool to split the drive. Drive image has that capability.

Starts to spin then stops


Either the power supply is failing, or the drive has gone defective.
Check with IOmega, it's probably under warranty.
If it isn't, open up the casing and see whose drive (ie, Seagate, Samsung, Maxtor) they used, because the drive itself may be under warranty by the manufacturer.
Before doing that though, connect the drive inside your PC and see if it works.
If it does, just permanently mount it in there because the external boxs' power supply is shot.
If it works in the PC and you really need it to be external, just buy an external hard disk enclosure.
They are about $30 in most places, and that'll FixYa right up!

Iomega 1TB HD Works on iMac but not on Windows Laptop?


as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

Hard Drive not recognized by laptop


The Hard Drive could have come loose from the SATA or PATA connection, or your Hard Drive could have simply died. If it is still under warranty; replace it. If it is out of warranty; open the external casing and check that the HD is connected and / or test the HD in a separate external casing or Desktop that you have. If it is connected and the external casing is working properly (or Desktop is booting properly and can read it), then you have a dead Hard Drive and will have to buy a new one.

Pluged my iomaga 1tb to pc but will not find it


This is an issue with iomega external drives in which the drive won't show up on My Computer as a drive. This can be verified by connecting the external drive to an Ubuntu machine and see if it's being detected. If it is then the best thing to do is reformat the drive on Ubuntu using GParted then connect back the external drive on windows. Check this link for a similar issue.

Hope this helps . . .

Hello, I plugged in my iomega 1tb desktop hard drive storage device and the drive does not appear in my drive or computer. I do have the new hardware 'sound' that comes up but I dont have the drive show up...


Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

thank you.

Device unable to start


Hi,
Make sure the product is not under warranty (12 months after purchase) open it up and identify the hard drive, it might be Segate, contact them on their web site to see if the drive is still under warranty, it might be, check the link below. You can replace the drive with another one (same brand) if it is out of warranty.
