Question about PC Desktops

I have purchased iomega external hard drive and have it reg. but now need to install the software and would like a manual. Instructions state to download software from www.iomega.com/getemc. To protect data simply drag and drop copies of your critical flies onto the drive. I have gotten myself confused I guess, but could you please walk me through the steps to get this done.? I am trying to save data before windows is attempted to be fixed. I can not send or receive emails. I understand just enough to be dangerous and would appreciate any help. Thanks Sue Abbott

Firstly, you shouldn't need to download any external software if you have Windows Backup. Just go to Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools and look for Backup. If you don't see it, it's on the original Windows CD. Click below for instructions on installing it.

Now, onto your e-mail issue, what e-mail program do you use? Did you make any system or provider changes of late that would cause your e-mail client to stop downloading e-mails? Post back.

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.

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.

I had a hard drive crash a while back so I had to install a new one. I don't remember what to do next to retrieve the info from my iomega usb hard drive. I am sure the hard drive is a 500 GB desk top


You need to re-install the Iomega backup software on the new hard drive, so that it will see the backup files on the external hard drive.

I just bought an iOmega eGo 160GB external hard drive and have no idea how to use it once I've installed the program. Help!!


From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)

Yes you should try to run the installation disks for the iomega again, You might need to run regedit to remove the software or go into the add remove programs and remove all traces then reinstall software.

Corrupt drive


Hi Whisky300,
If you connected the drive after the updates, you may want to manually update and select "Custom" rather than "Express" at the Microsoft update site (with your USB Hard Drive attached), The custom installation will allow you to view and select additional hardware and software updates that the express option won't, and may very well pick up your USB hard drive.
If the above has been tried already or doesn't help, you can give this link a try: https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/iomega_na_en.cfg/php/enduser/cust_alp.php?prod_lvl1=3&prod_lvl2=34&p_prods=3,34&cat_lvl1=50&p_cats=50&p_pv=2.34&p_cv=1.50&p_sid=A52CRS-i
It's an Iomega support and download page for Firewire/USB hard drives.
Good luck.
