Iomega 1TB HDD on Windows 8

Ok so I am trying to in the Iomega Encryption App to get to the Password screen in the app to enter my password to unlock the Hard Drive. I cannot bring up the HDD in the Computer Menu without first unlocking the HDD through the Security Encryption. For some reason when I click on the app, all it brings up is the settings menu for when it is not connected or if it is connected and that is it. My computer DOES detect the HDD but I can't seem to unlock the HDD through a password, it just does not show that menu. I just recently upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 pro. But I think I forgot to unplug Iomega Hard Drive while Windows 8 was being installed, I don't know if that had to do with anything. I have tried uninstalling the Encryption Application but that did not do anything for the password menu to come up in the Application. I just tried my Hard Drive on another Windows 7 Computer, which I never connected to and the computer installed the application and I was able to unlock the HDD through the password menu no problem. I really would like some sort of solution as I have like 200 GBs already on this HDD!

Ive the same issue as yours. I recently updated my OS from windows 7 to windows 8pro. I've an iOmega ego, which works perfectly with windows vista and 7 but doesn't work with windows 8. It doesn't let me past the settling tab to p/w tab. iOmega is still working on a solution for the same. Hope it gets resolved asap!

I know it might sound a bit simple, but let's start at the beginning.

Make sure that the power is properly plugged in, and that it's securely plugged into the USB port.

Put in the hard drive you will be using.
Now turn on your device by clicking on the power button.
Listen out for a "ding" or a chime in your OS.

If you DO hear one, the hard drives may need to be properly formatted or not properly assigned.

If you hear a chime, go to your desktop and right-click on "Computer" and click "Manage"

Go to "Disk Management" and at the top, there are a few options, and check for your hard drives, and right-click on the proper one and click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths" assign it a letter, and check "Computer" to see if came up.

Thanks,

Please Rate.

SOURCE: I connected the hard drive to my laptop, selected

It sounds like a couple of possible issues. One issue could be that the partition for the drive was accidentally set too low. You can check the drive partitions by going to:

Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

Once you're in there, you can click on "Disk Management" located on the left. If you click on one of the drives, you'll be able to see the partitions of the drives at the bottom, represented by blue bars and the hard drive's name. If you right click on one of the drives, you might be able to click "Extend volume" to extend the drive. If not, try uninstalling the program that you recently installed onto the drive, and if even that does not work, try to format the drive.

SOURCE: iomega desktop hard drive doesnt connect to computer

Your pc is generally configured to save all stuff to C drive as its default. You could then cut and past it into your new drive or when you are downloading specify the drive letter of you 1tb drive to save to. If you do not do this it is normal for it to save to C drive-that is also what mine does. I doubt anything is wrong-it is just the default drive. It soulnds like it is connected-copy and paste something onto it to test it(dont cut and paste at this point as you need to be certain it works. When you have done this,, open up whatever you copied onto it and ensure it is ok.

    Forgot password code: 8015D002


    Problem
    You see the following error code and message when you try to sign in to Xbox Live:

    Account does not exist.
    Status Code: 8015D002


    This may mean there's a problem with your account. For example, the security information for your account may need to be updated.

    Solutions
    Solution 1: Did you recently sign up for two-step verification?
    If you recently turned on two-step verification, you may not know how to sign in to apps or devices that don't accept security codes. Some apps (like the mail apps on some smartphones) and devices (like the Xbox 360) can't prompt you to enter a security proof when you try to sign in. If you get an incorrect-password error with an app or device, you'll need to create a unique app password to sign in. After you sign in with your app password, you're all set to use that app or device. You'll use this new app password to sign in to your device instead of using your Microsoft account password.

    You'll need to create and sign in with an app password once for each app or device that can't prompt you for a security proof.
    1. Sign in to your Microsoft account.
    2. Under Password and security info, tap or click Edit security info.
      If you're prompted for a security proof, enter it and tap or click Submit.
    3. Under App passwords, tap or click Create a new app password.
      A new app password is generated and appears on your screen.
    4. When you're prompted for your Microsoft account password on your Xbox console, enter the app password that you created online.After you sign in with your app password, you're all set to use that app or device. You will use this new app password to sign in to your device instead of your Microsoft account password.
    Solution 2: Verify your Microsoft account security informationFollow these steps:
    1. Visit Microsoft account.
      Note If you forgot your password or can't sign in using your password, reset your password.
    2. Click Edit security info.
    3. Verify your security information. For example, verify the Phone number, Alternate email address, and Security question information.
    4. Sign out of your Microsoft account and then sign in again.
    5. Try to sign in to Xbox Live again.
