Question about Iomega Computers & Internet
My iomega was working perfectly online and offline..... then I installed an upgrade from Vista to Windows8. Since then I can't access it, although I get a message saying it is all working..... and the interface is different. My computer can't find it now. Am I missing something? I've done all the updates and installs that have been suggested. Would really appreciate some ideas with this..... thanks in advance. Regards... Pauline x
Your Iomega device requires drivers and I think that they will work with Win7 but not the obsolete Win8 version. Return to your old OS to enable it to work.

SOURCE: Iomega 250Gb stopped working
Hi, according to Microsoft Support: Code 10: If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10) (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123) Recommended resolution: Device failed to start. Click Update Driver to update the drivers for this device. On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. Uninstalling and reinstalling does not fix, then you have to right click and updtae drivers assuming you have enabled you Automatic Updates. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up or if we can be of further assistance. Good luck.

Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.

a windows update may have run and killed the drivers...try rolling the system back to before the problem started, then if updates run again..and set them to download but dont install..install them yourself..run updates and see if the problem re-appears.
