Have you tried another computer to check the drive? Also installing newer drivers may resolve the issue. And for last, try a different USB cable. I hope this helps.

I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

All you need is a player with correct codecs. To make thing easy just use VLC Player (free), and forget the technical for a now.

I CAN NOT RETRIEVE DATA MY COMPUTER WILL NOT


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this hard drive data recovery program to recover your files.

How do I back up my computer with an iomega portable hard drive?


  • 1 ***** the size of files you need for taking the backup. Files having graphics, sound and videos occupy more space than a simple text file.


    2 Plan the future requirements and consider the space needed accordingly.


    3 Choose an external drive of 20 GB or above to store huge data backups.


    4 Get an external hard drive and connecting cables to attach the drive to your computer.


    5 Select the data you want for backup. Organize the data into folders and sub-folders for easy find. Financial data, digital photos and music can form priority data for backup.


    6 Connect the drive to your computer. Use the drag and drop options for taking the backup.


    7 Remove the drive after properly ejecting by right clicking on the task bar on the desktop.


    8 Keep the external drive away from the place where you have your computer when done. If your computer gets damaged due to any unforeseen reason, you will have your entire data safe in the external hard drive. It minimizes the risk of data loss.

    My Iomega external ego hard drive(360GigaBytes)will cause my H.P. Pavilion with windows 7 to randomly restart while transferring data.


    I had a similar 'rebooting' issue with my WD external drive caused by a faulty USB interface on my Desktop: if you have an external USB hub, try running your drive via the plug-in USB Hub to shield your external drive from your desktop inbuilt USB electronics..

    I have an HP765 pavilion with a burnt out power supply. I have alot of information on the hard drive. What specific parts would I need to remove and what are my possible choices for data transfer besides...


    If you are certain that it is only your power supply, you should be able to replace the power supply and the Pavilion should work again.

    On the other hand, you can hook the hard drive up to another functioning desktop PC, use the jumpers on the hard disk and make it a slave drive, so that it will not conflict with the HD that boots the computer.

    Once it boots up, try to access the slave drive and, if you have room on the primary drive, copy your valuable data to your C drive. If you don't have the room, if you can burn DVDs or CDs, then copy the data and burn it to a series of DVDs or CDs, but it will take a load of CDs.

    Then there is the option of - still as a slave drive - buying a 64 GB jump drive, or an external HD with a load of space, like an IOMEGA with a Terrabyte of space, and copying the valuable data from the slave drive to the Huge External HD, over a USB cable.

    Clearly, USB will be a slow process, but it is a solid connection, and safe, and should allow you to copy and save all your valuable data to the external HD which gives you the additional option of being able to attach it to anything else with a USB connector, making all that valuable data portable.

    When done, you just remove that slave drive, and put the desktop back to the way it was.

    Good luck!

    Computer doesnt read the external hard drive anymore


    It sounds like the hard drive head crashed when you pulled the power plug. Unfortunately if you can't get drive to be recognized, you won't even be able to run any diagnostics. You will have to take the drive to an authorized repair shop who will have to check the electronics to see if the head will respond. Unless you have data on your drive that you absolutely need, you will probably save a lot of money by replacing rather than repairing the drive.
