Buy a spare disk from http://usedpdaparts.com/Lifedrive.html, and plug it in. Or, buy a CF card and build a ROM yourself to replace the bad drive.

Not cooling


If you hear a hum then a click, that is the compressor short cycling. Put your hand on the compressor in the back, if it is very hot(don't burn yourself) then the compressor is dead and will need to be replaced. If the compressor is cold and not running, check for power through the t-stat and to the freezer. If there is power to the t-stat but not through it then replace the t-stat. If there is power through then there is a good chance the compressor is dead.

Trying to find the operators manual for prestige desktop hard drive super speed usb 3.0 ,2 tb


The general directions is to plug the USB cable from the IOmega Prestige into any available (Open) USB port.

To open, (Access) the contents on the harddrive, double-click on the drive letter that corresponds with the IOmega.

In WinXP left-click on Start, then on My Computer.
In Win Vista and Win7 left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Computer.

You will see there are different drive letters;

Drive A: is reserved for a Floppy Drive. Older computers
Drive C: is for the Harddrive. (Hard Disk)
Drive D: is reserved for a recovery drive, or an optical drive (CD/DVD drive)
Drive E: is reserved for an optical drive, usually.

Drive letters beyond these are usually under the heading, Devices with Removable Storage

One of these drive letters should correspond with the IOmega.

Suggest, IOmega not plugged in, go to My Computer, or Computer, and look at the devices connected to the various drive letters.

Now plug the IOmega in, and see if it shows up next to a drive letter.
(Give the computer BIOS a few seconds)

Where there was NO device shown BEFORE, there should now be a device shown.
{No device shown before, but now there is. May not state IOmega, just external storage, or similar}

DOUBLE-click on the device shown.

For example:

I have drive letters C: D: E: F: G: H: I: J: and K:

Drive letter C: is for my harddrive.
Drive letter D: is for a recovery drive. (Partition in harddrive reserved for recovery)
Drive letter E: is for an optical drive (CD/DVD drive)

Drive letters F through K are reserved for an external storage device.
Whether it be an external harddrive, or flashdrive, or what have you.

IF you find the drive letter that corresponds with the IOmega DOUBLE-click right on it.
If nothing happens, or if there is no device shown when the IOmega is plugged in, there is a problem with the IOmega.

Hard to believe IOmega is still having problems with their external harddrives.

In the past they were having problems with a small circuit board located inside the IOmega's case.

[ A circuit board is a PCB.
Printed Circuit Board

For example a computer mouse has a small PCB in it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mouse_printed_circuit_board_both_sides_IMG_0959a.JPG ]

The small circuit board is an Interface Board.

It connects the harddrive inside the IOmega's plastic case, to a USB cable, and this allows the harddrive inside to be plugged into a USB port on a computer.

As mentioned inside the plastic outer case (External enclosure) of the IOmega is a harddrive.
(Hard Disk drive; proper speak)

Harddrives are measure across their Width. There are two current types used;
A laptop size harddrive, and a desktop size harddrive.

A Laptop size harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches, or 6.4cm)
A Desktop size harddrive is 3.5 inches across in width. (Or 8.9cm)

There are two technologies used;
IDE (PATA) or SATA

I'm sure the harddrive inside susanbrenton is a SATA unit.
I BELIEVE, it is a laptop size harddrive (2.5)

Point?

If there is data (Information) on the IOmega that you must have, you may wish to buy an inexpensive external enclosure, remove the harddrive from the IOmega, and install it into the external enclosure.

The external enclosure has a plastic case (Enclosure), and a small circuit board inside. It has a USB cable, or connector, just like the IOmega does.

Once you install the IOmega harddrive inside the case, the case is closed, and it's USB cable is plugged into a computer.
(Just like the IOmega. You are just replacing the small circuit board essentially)

Once you have the IOmega's case open, and can view the internal harddrive, measure the width of the harddrive.
Buy the appropriate external enclosure.

This is one example of an external enclosure for a 2.5 SATA harddrive,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

This is one example of a external enclosure for a 3.5 SATA harddrive,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145406&CatId=2780

Basic instructions on how to open an IOmega Prestige external enclosure (Case):

1) There are two Philips head screws on the Back of the case.
These are removed.
Once removed a the oblong panel on the end comes off.

2) You can now see the harddrive inside. Pull from the Front, and remove the harddrive out of the case.

3) The harddrive is attached with screws to a metal carrier. (Bracket, essentially)
Remove the screws, remove the harddrive.

Basic example, the harddrive will look like this,

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure first that there are no devices plug in to the usb when you boot up the computer. Check if the harddrive is being detected by the computer. Press F2 to go to BIOS menu and see if the computer can detect you harddrive. It should be under the main menu and will say below harddrive. It should give you infromation of the harddrive. If there is no information of the harddrive then the problem there is the harddrive already.

Please reply to this email for any update.

Thank you for using Fixya!

this could be a few things wrong.you should never hit or knock the the harddrive for any reason.
1,could be dirt inside the fan if its not turning it will shut down so it does not over heat.if this is the reason just blow into were the fan is and try and free it up.or you may have to open it up to clean it.
2,make sure harddrive is pushed all the way into its fittings.
if this does not work let me know.

Error code OFOO:O75D error:OFOO:O244


Is this from a blue screen error ?

A "STOP" MESSAGE in white letters behind a blue background?

If it's a sata message (hard drive error message), this means that your harddrive is dead or about to die. Most likely its already dead, this error means also that the harddrive cant be read anymore.

Harddrive problem


Loud clicking means the drive is on the verge of complete failure. It might be possible for a data recovery expert to retrieve your data but you should not plug it in at all until they attempt data recovery. Running the drive will only speed up it's failure and it should only be run to do the data recovery. Some techs (like myself) can do software data recovery until the drive stops spinning, usually for $200 to $300. After that, it will have to go to a clean room which can run from $500 to $2500 to retrieve data depending on the amount of data and the procedure used to access the data on the dead drive.

sounds like its trying to load windows but the harddrive is failing to respond, most of the time if it loads everything up to the windows itself its all done before initalizing the harddrive itself.. try putting the harddrive into another computer or usb external to check if its dead.. you might just need a new one =T not 100% sure though but its worth trying.

External harddrive


Sounds like a dead hard drive if 2 pc's won't recognize it.

Does it show up in device manager?
(Rightclick my computer click properties->hardware->device manager->disk drives...or click other devices instead of disk drives .)

Check for it in control panel->administrative tools->computer managerment->disk management too.
If it's not showing up get a replacement (assuming its under warranty).
