If the drives' filing system is NTFS, then you will need to change it to either FAT32, if you would still like to use it on a Windows PC, or HFS+

You get the drivers at Iomega.com and look under support to get your drivers.

REMEMBER you need to install those drivers to ONE pc and then have all your computers networked to it thru your network neighborhood. Any other questions, please write back to me, ok?

SOURCE: I have the Iomega model

Goto control panel / computer management / disk management now you should see all your drives right click your 160Mb drive and select delete partition. Now right click it again and select format, choose the Fat32 file system and give it a full format not a quick one seeming its been used on a Mac and you shouldnt have a problem. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Hi my iomega is asking me to format it but that means that l will loose all my data???


Yes, the file system is corrupted and will need to be formatted for the drive to work again. You will unfortunately lose all your data unless you take the drive to a data recovery specialist to recover the data but that can get get quite expensive to it's up to you.

You will have to copy the data from the Iomega drive.

You will then need to format the hard drive using the mac operating system so that the mac can read the file system. Unfortunately this means that you will not be able to use the iomega in Windows-based systems in the future.

Alternatively, copy the data off, and format the hard drive in a Windows environment using the file system FAT32. Mac operating systems can read this format. :)

    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.

    Yes. The MiniMax is designed to match the MacMini from Apple and comes formatted out of the box to work with a Mac. (One of the few drives that is!)
    I think Iomega supply various Windows drivers on the CD
