You cant format your hard drive without uninstalling your operating system. if you try, it will say that unable to format becouse some files are in use.

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.

Not a good idea. With the correct screw drivers it can be done. WHY? there is nothing to fix, and most likely it will be useless when you finish.

Could you please clarify what is the problem for M5640 desktop with upgrade HDD up to 2 TB. Capacities are visiable in setup and operating system properly. But format procedure is frozen exactly about 54%...


Your computer is not compatible with a Boot Hard drive with size of 2TB. The BIOS does not allow/support it.

You will need to install a smaller hard drive as the Boot drive for Windows and then use the 2TB drive as a slave drive.

2TB boot drives are supported by Intel's new 2nd Generation I3, I5 or I7 on the 1155 Socket.

Thumbs Up!

Take care!

Good morning. I have installed in my Company a Iomega nas model 450R. This morning after a rebootit seems it can't find the boot disk and the nas asks for a operating system restore or go back to factory...


Hook the hdd up to another pc via a usb adapter & then ethier use Acronis or other imaging software to make an exact image file of the drive. You can save this file for later use if something goes wrong. If no such software is available, then make a new folder on the pc you have it hooked up to & manually save each file. Atleast then you have all the critical stuff,the operating system will have to be re-installed on the 450 if you lose it.

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.
