4. the drive may not be supported by the motherboard for your PC.

Cannot copy files to Iomega 500 GB external hard drive.


It depends on how you formatted the the drive.
If it was formatted FAT it will work on both Mac and PC.
If you formatted to HFS+ (the native mac format) then it will only work on a mac.
