SOURCE: external drive wont mount

Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :

Check this before you try to edit the registry values. 

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/profiles.1.html

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive.

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

You can use the Disk utility in MAC to run the diags on your drive.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

SOURCE: Iomega 250 GB external stopped working

This is really not a solution, but you should all try to connect your iomega to a imac, and use the Disk Utility (in Utilities folder), if you have any luck the hard drive will be recognized and you will be able to format it

SOURCE: I have an IOMEGA 60 GB HDD probably from 2003.

Just take the drive out and put it into a new enclosure would be your cheapest option to keep it portable

I label all my PSU's with a dymo label maker to try avoid the situation you just had (fingers crossed)

Or you could insert the drive into a computer that has a suitable interface eg. SATA or IDE

Iomega eGo hard drive lite flashes not seen by comp.


There's a chance you got installed the less updated drivers for your Operating System (Windows, Mac OS ie)

You can find recent drivers at the following link.

If this won't help, the problem might be located at hardware-level. In such case it's wise to check the warranty for this external HDD.
