Hi there, i to have an iomega external drive, have you tried to disconnect the cable, i.e.. the usb cord and restarting the computer and pluging in the hard drive itself back into the usb slot.....if yes i am thinking, another thing is, wha operating system are you using, if it is vista and you restarted the computer with it pluged in you must restart it without the iomega plugged into the computer, when an external drive is plugged in and the system resatrts vista recognizes it as an internal drive and tries to reboot from it....i am not sure why vista does this, it happens to me and microsoft says it's a protection thing, from hacker hardware components......so all usb things should be replugged into the computer after vista has started with just the regular things...microphones and such are ok....just things with mass storage are what need to be unplugged and replugged into the computer after reboot....hope this helps....shia

Iomega hard drives seem to give my MAc finder brain freeze


It's possible that ONE (or maybe BOTH) of the drives are defective. Disconnect one of them, and continue to use your computer. If the "freeze" never appears, then the non-connected drive is defective, and, since it is a "new" drive, you can get it replaced, for free, under warranty. If the "freeze" appears, then the currently-connected drive is defective, and needs to be replaced.

Computer doesn' t recognize iomega eGo portable


a windows update may have run and killed the drivers...try rolling the system back to before the problem started, then if updates run again..and set them to download but dont install..install them yourself..run updates and see if the problem re-appears.
