Question about Iomega MiniMax Desktop - Hard drive - 500 GB - external - Hi-Speed USB - 7200 rpm - buffe
In your situation I would :
open the minimax enclosure, and take the hd out, (just open the enclosure, not the hd itself), and then open your desktop and connect this hd as slave (I am guessing you have a desktop with IDE hd and that the minimax has an IDE hard drive in it.... or both your desktop and the minimax has SATA hard drives) and then when you turn on your computer you should be able to see your second hd as a partition and be able to see the info in there, yet if windows does not recognize it, that means your hd is useless., yet remember you have to change the pin on your external hd to be slave or auto detect, if you let it as master your computer won't boot, bout do not worry, after you unpluges the hd from your desktop everything will be normal
shutdown and unpluged the power cord from your desktop when adding/removing the hd.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
