Question about Iomega Computers & Internet

I can't access or upload data on my Iomega device since my upgrade to Windows8... any solutions out there please?

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

    Thank you aa1Consult.... this has happened only since my upgrade from Vista to Windows8, and I had to reistall all my previous programs. Manually installing updates rather than auto installing is a great idea though and I will do that forever! If something goes awry, then I know immediately the first thing to try. Thanks again.Px

    Louie..... thanks for your informative reply. I'm sure I have updated everything that can be updated.... but I will double check all that you suggest right now. Warmest regards...Pauline x

    Hi Keith...... I will go try to connect it to my Laptop..... I never thought of that! I really would like it to connect to my desktop, but I'll learn something then, won't I ! I'll be back with news later! Thanks again.....Paulinex

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.

SOURCE: Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium

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.

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.

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,

My iomega hard drive worked fine before, but now won't show on My Computer or Autoplay. Help, please?!


First check whether your computer can see the external drive:
1. Right click My Computer and select Properties
2. Click on Device Manager
3. Expand Disk Drives by clicking the arrow on the left side of it.
Is the IOmega in the list of the disk drives?

If it is, then it is either:
1. The drive is faulty and the ID is from the IOmega controller
2. The drive is ok but severe bad sectors or other failing components prevent the drive to mount.

Testing the External Drive.
Listen closely to the if it sounds like it's spinning or it's doing something.
1. Clicking sound - The hard drive inside the Iomega caddy is faulty, either the pcb or heads, or both
2. Scraping sound - There is a platter damage on the drive. Recovery not possible.
3. No sound at all - Problem with either drive's pcb or the Iomega controller.

If your drive behaves like one above, I suggest you send your hard drive to data recovery companies.

I cannot transfer my data from computer to Iomega hard disk. It can be detected and I can transfer the other way round. Please help me out.


Has your Iomega drive ever worked with this particular computer under this particular Operating System??? Have you recently upgraded your computer or operating system??? Have you checked the Microsoft Hardware Compatability list for issues??? Here is the link for Win 7: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/?CMXID=ef_sem&semid=ef_GGL_851ac3fe441d9bbe86ee8334a709e4f2&WT.srch=1&ef_id=2437:3:s_261e5c7b1fd43ac28c94d632358a0e63_5518740682:TKiIwQqoEEQAAF-pvOQAACiS:20101003134433 From here you can also access other versions of Windows to match your OS.

If everything checks out in the hardware department, I suggest you go to the Iomega website and assure you have the very latest driver for your device that is compatible with your computer/OS.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

Iomega 1TB desk top won't eject.


Some of the iomega hard drives don't communicate with Windows XP very well. Ejecting isn't needed, but you simply unplug it. Just make sure you are not accessing it at that time. You can also shutdown the computer and unplug it then. Restarting the computer may also allow you to eject it.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!
