    make sure you have the newest firewire tech, as the usb2 is faster than the firewire it runs at 480mps are you trying to run it with a usb cord?

Loose hardware

There are not many parts in a hard drive.
  • Data platters (secured with 5 or 6 screws)
  • logic board (doesn't move)
  • Actuator arm moves rapidly to read data.

Some whining or crunching sound is normal. I'd say either the logic board is burnt out, the reader head crashed or the data platters have lots of bad sectors. If it isn't working or detected your best bet is to replace it.

Where can one buy a replacement pcb control board for a iomega 'ultramax plus' unit? My existing one has a damaged IC component at 'U4'....and possibly more elsewhere on the board.

No one sells what you're looking for. I'm assuming the drives were in a raid configuration which means you can't put them in an enclosure to get the data off. Your best bet is to purchase another unit and replace the drives. This thing is hella expensive. If you don't need the data you can get a different one bigger and cheaper.

Your USB port does not have enough power to support the drive. You will need to use an external power source or try a firewire cable if the drive has that option.Travis Cable
