Partition inaccessibIe - iOGear COMBO ION GHD135C120 Hard Drive

I have an IOGear Combo Ion GHD135C120 External hard drive that came partitioned into 4 subdrives. Until about a week ago, those showed up as ION Drive A (J:), ION Drive B (K:), ION Drive C (L:), and ION Drive D (M:). Now, the J drive only shows up as Local Disk (J:) and is not accessible. I didn't do anything that should affect this drive. Can anyone diagnose this problem? I am not familiar with partitioned drives at all, and I have critical data in that partition.

Hi there. you may try changing the drive letter by going to disk management. Right click "my computer"icon and select manage. Go to Disk Management. check the size of the drive you're having problem with. If it still shows that there are files saved, right click the drive letter you're having problem with. Change the drive letter to Y. Try accessing after.

Can't access Ion Drive


You have to check also Disk Management while your HD is connected to the your computer.

First, if you can detect the HD in your Device Manager but not under the Disk Management, then the IOGEAR Tech Support is could be correct.

If that's the case, you need to contact IOGEAR and ask them to send you a USB Y-Cable. That Y-Cable is FREE. IOGEAR will just ask for your billing address, and they can send you one for free.

That Y-Cable has two type-A USB and one mini-B USB ports. The two type-A should be connected to the computer, and the other end to your HD. Having two USB connected to your computer, that should be enough for the HD to get power from the two USB ports.

If that did not help, I would suggest to connect your HD into different computer to see if you can detect it.

If you do detect it, back up all the files, reformat your HD, change the drive letter, and then retrieve all the files back.

Thank you and good luck!

I lost the power adaptor on IOGEAR COMBO Ghd


You need to use 12V; 5V Dual power adapter.

You may also need to contact IOGEAR and order the power adapter directly from them. They can deliver it directly to you.

Thank you and good luck!

Iogear problem


Hi. What device are you using? I suggest that you check if the keyboard is hooked up to the correct port. You will see underneath the KVM an icon that looks like a mouse and a keyboard. Make sure that everything is hooked up correctly. It should be okay once you connect them properly. Press "scroll lock" twice.

IOGEAR COMBO not recognised


Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
