    Same problem here with Rev 35 drive. I'll toss it out. The 400,000 hour rating is B...S...! The expensive discs can follow it into the junkpile.

    I went to check the last backup and was surprised to find the disk had ejected. I reinserted it and tried to browse to see if files had been updated, but Windows could not find the drive. Tried a different disk and it was immediately ejected. (I think the lighted button was flashing the whole time.)

    The next morning, the light was off, the power supply felt hot. Took it to a different outlet, different computer, but it's completely dead now.

Those are not really servicesable parts in that sucker. Do you get anything at all when pluging it in?

If not you should try a new pc. Still nothing?

May want to search ebay for a cheap replacement.

Iomega external hard drive is not detected. previously it was working fine on my laptop. so i guess it has usb v2. but after i got it repaired for motherboard problem it stopped detecting my external hard...


Hi - Does your laptop have more than one usb port? If so try the drive in it/them. Also, try another device (mouse, etc.) in the USB port(s) and see if it works.
The drive probably (you didn't say which model so I'm not sure where). has a power led somewhere. Does that light up when the drive is plugged into the notebook? If not that would certainly be cause for it to not be recognized.
Lastly, you didn't specify which notebook you have so I can't tell you how to; but upon bootup get into the BIOS setup menu and check any settings for USB and storage devices - don't do this if your not comfortable with it or haven't done it before.
If nothing else works in the USB port(s) it would point to possibly something done while in the repair shop that was an accidental no-no.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

My computer refuses to recognize the external hard drive what do i do


Hello there,

What type of OS are you running ( Windows # )

What type of motherboard

Here is what i would do to start off with,


STEP ONE - Check all connections
  1. Unplug the USB data cable from the drive and the computer.
  2. Check the ends of the USB data cable to ensure that they are not damaged.
  3. Reconnect the USB data cable to the drive and the computer. Check the connections to ensure that they are secure.

    Note: If you have a Portable Hard Drive with a 2-line USB/power cable, connect both the data line and the supplemental power line (usually marked with a lightning bolt icon) to USB ports on the computer. If the status light on the drive glows steadily, the drive is receiving power. Go to step E.
  4. If you are connecting an Iomega Desktop Hard Drive, check the power supply connections to the drive and power outlet to ensure that they are secure.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Double click the Computer or My Computer to see if the Iomega Hard Drive is detected.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is detected, you can now use the drive.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is not detected, please try another USB cable and/or power supply (if available). If the Iomega Hard Drive is still not detected, continue with the next step.

if that doesn't work go to this helpful site and follow the Steps one by one to fix this problem

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

My PC cannot see the hard drive


The external storage device has several major components:
* USB cable
* external power-supply
* disk-drive inside the enclosure
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.
Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.
Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.
Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

It could be that for some reason it is trying to grab a drive letter that is already being used. As administrator, right click on "My Computer" > Manage > Disk Management. Change the drive letter if needed by choosing "Edit". (You should first check your iomega by connecting it to another computer to make sure it is working properly.) Good luck.
