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.

My computer is not recognizing the drive when I plug it in.


Hi did you try in other computer if yes and still didnt work do you listen any noise on the hard drive .
another thing to do to be sure that the usb ports are working fine in your computer its not been disabled bu bios or an antivirus please plug a flash drive or other hard drive in the computer and see if it gets recognized if yes then your system dosent have any issue .and check the hard drive if it dosent get recognized in the other computer also then may be the partitiontable is corrupt or your iomega hard drive case has problem.
To remove data from your hard drive in the worse case u need to remove the hard drive and plug it to the system directly and check
Thanks

Have only just decided to install my new Iomega 500 GB usb 2.0 hard drive and I have mislaid my quick install guide. I have an Apple imac can you help please


Just connect the AC power to the IOMEGA, and the USB cable between the IOMEGA and a USB port on your computer. It is a "plug-and-play" device, and so Apple OS X should automatically recognize it.

Did you have to install a driver for it initially? Try reinstalling the driver, if so.

I thought most drives were plug and play. If it does not have a driver, trying using a different USB port. Sometimes the ports can freak out and not recognize the item plugged in, especially if you use multiple items in the same port. (ie, cameras, cell phones, printers, etc)

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

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
