SOURCE: I have just bought an Iomega Strocenter iX2 but

The IX2 doesn't have white indicator lights. The IX2-200 does which would mean that the device is healthy and ready for use.
Since you are directly connecting it to your imac via ethernet cable which is the only way to connect to the device as the USB's are hubs.
First make sure you computer is getting an APIPA address 169.254.x.x (x represents randomly generated numbers by the computer), do a factory reset (depressing the reset button on the back for 4-5 seconds) which should restart the device, open a Terminal window (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) and type (without the quote marks) findsmb and hit enter. You should see your device populated on that list and you should also see an IP address associated with the device. Open an internet browser window and type the devices IP address into the address bar without the "http://" in front. You should have access to the device now.
At this point you will want to statically (manually) setup an IP for your device with your networks subnet. Once you statically set the IP. Disconnect it from your computer and put it on the network.
Good Luck.

Windows 8 is not very friendly with much. you will most likely have to upgrade your devices to windows 8 compatible ones. The only other thing I can think of is a patch in software, firmware upgrade on devices not working or an emulator of some kind if they exist for you products.

I have the Iomega ix2 2T iCloud edition and forgot my admin password. How do I access it? (even if I have to reset everything)


At the back of the drvice there is a little reset swtich, located just above the rear usb port. Take a small object (eg. a paperclip) and press the button for 4 seconds. This should reset the password and disable the security.
