Amazon UK has the adapter: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LDHD-UP2-MDHD500-UE-MDHD320-MDHD500-U-External/dp/B007487VPI . There is also few sellers on Ebay with the power adapter. One vendor is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-Adapter-For-Iomega-LDHD-UP2-MDHD320-MDHD500-U-Hard-Drive-HDD-Power-Supply-PSU-/350600202608 .

SOURCE: External Hard Drive -- too much power for my USB port on my computer

Hi mhjohn

First, this is actually a good thing in a way. The reason is, it is actually telling you right up front that your USB bus is underpowered for this device. That's a huge improvement over issues caused by underpowered USB buses in the previous model computers. In those, we were left to having to figure out what the problem was when a USB device inexplicably stopped or didn't work.

What is happening is, your new external hard disk drive (HDD) is trying to run off of power taken from your laptop's USB "bus" (circuitry). This is OK for devices needing low power. But in the case of external hard disks, it's "iffy" whether there'll be enough power on the USB bus to support them. Particularly on laptop computers.

You need only attach an A/C adapter to your external hard disk drive (HDD) and you should be OK. If that is not an option, connect a **powered** USB hub to your laptop and plug the external HDD to the hub instead.

By "powered" I mean a USB hub that comes w/ an A/C adapter. In either case, using a powered USB hub or attaching an A/C adapter to your hard disk drive will remove the external hard disk's power load from your laptop's USB bus and provide sufficient power for the HDD to run.

You can find USB hubs at Newegg.com and lots of other online high tech stores. I like Newegg because their prices are competitive, their customer service is excellent and there're customer reviews of most of their products there as well.

If you have any more questions, comments, observations - anything at all, just let us know. We're here to help.

Thank you,
BJ @:)

SOURCE: How come 1tb is equal to 931gb on my new ext. hard drive???

This is due to marketing language. For these people, a KB is 1,000 bytes, not 1,024. Similarly with a MB which is 1,000,000 not 1,048,576.

So when they tell you that your drive is 1TB they mean 1,000 of 'their' gigabytes, which your computer sees as 931 'real' gigabytes.

Some usb drives - i.e pen drives - bring up the same message when they are inserted into a usb port. Windows usually installs the necessary software from within your computer. Other pen-drives are plug and play. Much depends on the operating system you have and the age of the usb pen.
It's probably just a question of getting updated drivers for your desktop hard drive. Right-click on the 'my computer' icon. Choose 'properties' Then choose 'device manager' or 'hardware'. Locate where your desktop hard drive is listed and open it. Then choose 'update driver'. Your computer should then search itself for updated drivers (which it won't find..) but it should also ask you if it can access the internet to search for drivers.
Alternatively, go to a website where you can download drivers yourself. Try http://www.iomega.com/support/documents/10425.html
Be aware that your desktop hard drive is now quite old. It won't last forever .. If you've got important stuff on it consider buying a new desktop hard drive and transferring everything to the new one.

The power adapter should be AC 120/230V and are you sure its LDHD and not LPHD? either way I would recommend going on ebay and typing "iomega ac adapter" in the search bar and take it from there, see if you can find one or e-mail a few sellers and see if they have one for your model, hope this helps!

try getting a new power cord from iomega, If that doesn;t work, the drive is probably corrupted. They are under a year warranty. You ship yours to them and they will send you a new one. Try the free chat on Iomega

Iomega 320 external hard drive computer wont recognise


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.
