Iomega mini max external HD slowing things down

I do video editing on my Mac Mini using my external iomega mini max and it worked fine when i first got it but it has been very sluggish as of late when i edit. when it slows down, it freezes for a second, then it freezes everything else up and i have to turn off my computer and turn it back on. when the hard drive is unplugged, everything works fine so i know it must be the HD. what can i do?

How do I save memory on my mini and save files on my iomega


Attach the cable from the external hard drive to an available usb port on your mini. Here is a link to the Guide provided with the unit if you do not have it. There should be a setup section. Use this drive to store all your pictures, music, documents etc.

It's possible to clone to this drive, but over the USB interface, it will be very slow. Firewire would be faster. It's also possible to boot from it, but again, it will be slower than an internal. What you've described, however, IS possible.

My mini max 500gb has just stopped working. i cannot hear the fan at all and all my other daisy chained mini max hard drives still work and register on my desktop


Your Imega external enclosure has malfunctioned. If you can, you need to take the enclosure apart and take the harddrive out and test it with a computer desktop that has sata connectable, if your computer is able to read, then your iomega harddrive enclose suffer malfuction, if the computer isn't able to read the harddrive through the sata connection, then your harddrive is bad.

Simple Tech HD failing- takes 4 hours to tranfer 512 MB!?


Not exactly a solution but I have had the same problem with one of these Simple Tech Signature Mini 320's for a while. Real finicky. Will only be recognized on direct connected to MB USB ports and even then with Win 7 or XP I get the "This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port." no matter what ports I connect it to. While having this issue on this "main" computer I have previously connected it to some other computer (don't remember which, now) and it connected at 2.0 speed. What's going on??

if your are not familior with linux, you will need winpe mini cd, **** you need to be carefull about loosing data in the drive, coz you might want to format it and clean all the bad sectors and clusters before using it.

This sounds as though the Iomega has got locked somehow.
Do a get info on its desktop icon and have a look at the lock checkbox. Also look at the write permissions while you are there.
