I lost connection to my Iomega 500gb network hard drive. I tried to reboot it but the drive's blue light keeps flashing after power up.


In that case you have a bad connection caused by a hardware failure. Take out the hard disk from the case, put it in a desktop and try to access directly there. If you can then the electronics of the case have failed - you need a new case.
If you can't then you need a new hard disk.

Doesn't work


am not so sure if this is a similar issue with iomega2_bing.gif external drive in which the drive wont show up on My Computer but when the external drive was plugged into an ubuntu machine the drive was being detected and working just fine.

Please try to do the same. plug your external drive to an ubuntu machine and lets see if it can be detected. If it is then the hard disk has a similar issue with iomega drives. check this link for the solution.

Power light is flashing


you probably have to format the new drive in your computer. It is rare to find a plug and play HDD. Do this either by right clicking on the drive in windows and selecting format. Or in dos by typing Format d: or if it is your c:\ drive you will need to boot off a boot disk which it sounds like you got the boot but if it is a drive the computer boots off you need to type format c:/s the /s makes the drive bootable

What kind of beep is that? Anything similar to these sounds: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
Most likely the spindle got stuck. That's really bad.
