SOURCE: My computer doesn't recognize my external hard drive

Hi Trajan & Cossrock,

Both may be as simple as stopping in at the local computer store and buying a new enclosure to move the drive into, however in Trajans case if the drives were working as a stripe set yours will likely need more in depth help.

So Cossrock, pop into your local computer store and have them test the AC adapter, it may simply need replacing, if not then try moving the drive to a new enclosure. If that doesn't work then you will need the help of a Data Recovery Expert and I can point you in the right direction, just comment back here and let me know how you made out.

Trajan, if your NAS box was simply running two drives seperately you should be able to move them into seperate cases or another dual drive case similar to Cossrocks solution, however if they are RAIDed you will likely need more assistance, please check and comment back if they are in RAID format. Also even if they are not in RAID many NAS boxes use a Linux OS and therefor a Linux format on the drive, if this is the case comment back and I will get you a link to a Linux file format driver but please include your OS Wndows Vista/XP/2000, Mac, Linux etc.

Well folks hope this helps you both out and like I said comment back with an update if you run into trouble and I will keep helping on the next steps.

SOURCE: iomega external not visible

Unfortunately, Windows isn't the most efficient operating system when it comes to it's "Plug 'n Play" abilities. In my experience, external hard drives can be particularly sensitive when it comes to unplugging the data cable while navigating the drive. I've had two external drives lose all data because of that flaw in the NTFS file system. The MFT exists on every drive with NTFS storage method. If that becomes corrupt, it can render the drive useless.

The drive may have power, but that quiet beeping you hear is an indication that the reader head is stuck to the platter and may be grinding into it. There is a myth (may or may not be true) that says if you put the drive in your freezer for a few minutes, take it out, drop it from 6 inches onto a hard surface, it may knock the head loose and make the drive work again.

I tried that method, and it made the situation worse for me, but it may work for you. I would resort to that option only if nothing else fixes it.

How do i detect the ip of my iomega


you have two options:

1) Install the Iomega management software and it will detect the connected storage at your network automatically, then you will be able to view the IP address
2) connect to your router management console and check the connected devices; if your network is not huge you will be able to locate the device easily

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 1TB USB 3.0 won't stay connected to my MacBook. The connection seems to go in and out, and now it won't detect it at all. Is this a situation where I should buy a new USB cable?


Digital cables are very much unlike analog cables. With analog you will get partial signals like channels with fuzz with deteriorated images. Digital cables, like the one you use with your portable HDD carry signals that work very much like binary code, either OFF/ON. (1/0) The fact that you are experiencing quick connection and disconnections could easily be a faulty usb cable OR a faulty port on EITHER your computer OR the HDD itself. Try to borrow a similar cable to test that it is not the devices ports (your computer OR the HDD) before purchasing a cable. If the devices ports are not functioning properly you will have to RMA or use your warranty.
Hope this helped!

Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.
