Question about Iomega Silver USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

All data has "disappeared" from my 300G usb 2.0 drive.

This is what I get when I try to run the Mac Disk utility:
Verify and Repair disk "Iomega HDD"
fsck_msdos(361) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=1069056) failed (error code=3)
fsck_msdos(361) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region

** Phase 3 - Checking Directories
No space for directory (Cannot allocate memory)
Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

1 non HFS volume checked
1 volume could not be repaired because of an error

How to repair memory card


  1. Download and install a data recovery program. The first thing you want to do when you encounter a memory card error is to attempt to recover important files. There are a number of programs available to accomplish this. Photo Rec is a powerful, free option for most operating systems, but lacks a graphical user interface, which can be intimidating for less advanced users. Find the data recovery program you are most comfortable with in terms of price and features.

    I have a mac and a new iogmega external drive, 500g. I cannot move any files onto the iomega or save them. I get messages such as "that file does not exist" to iomega can't be modified,...


    Hello,
    With the drive plugged in, going into your Applications ' Utilities ' Disk Utility Select the drive and press Verify Disk, Repair Disk and Repair Permissions. If you don't have anything on the drive right now, try formatting it with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system from the Disk Utility.
    If that doesn't work the drive may be damaged. If you have another PC / Mac, trying plugging it in and see if it works there. If the drive is under 1 year old it should still be under warrantee, in which you could return it / RMA and get a new one sent back from the manufacture.
    Regards, Chris

    My Mac recognizes the Iomega hard drive, but it will not let me copy or create new folders on it.


    I would run disk utility (found under applications and the utilities) this will give you an indication of the write status and will allow you to verify and repair the disk if necessary

    My lacie mounts on the g5 but when i click it, it doesn't open.


    It would be a good idea to look at the Mac system log so from a v bad memory do...click Apple (top laft hand corner) then about this Mac then System Profiler then Logs and take a look and see what errors you are getting. If this doesnt give you any clues my advice with external disk problems is where possible to remove the disk from the enclosure and install it in the Mac. if you can, THis will eliminate the USB cable, interface, and box. See if it mounts then. If it does run disk utility to double check it but get your data off first onto the Mac. Hope this helps....Mark
