Can't transfer items to hard drive

I just purchased the iomega 1TB portable external hard drive. I do not have the instructions with me. I can not move items to the device. I get the following error: "The item..... could not be moved because "Iomega HDD" cannot be modified." Could you advise how to move/transfer/export.. items (files, folders, documents, etc...) to the device? Thank you.

Do you have vista? if so you need to have administrative access to add to the hard drive.

How do I delete folders from my iomega 1TB external hard drive (LPHD-UPC)? I keep getting a message saying access denied / hard drive may be full (it's not) or in use? thanks


This can happen when you place a drive in multiple computers with windows. Also this can happen if the system used the drive to extract system folders.

right clickt he items and then click security. click advanced and you can go to the owner tab. under that there is a way to take ownership for the selected items and all subitems.

Does the Iomega show up under 'my computer'?
It should be another drive (D, E, F whatever) and as such you put stuff on to it the same way you would put stuff on to your C drive.

Hello, I plugged in my iomega 1tb desktop hard drive storage device and the drive does not appear in my drive or computer. I do have the new hardware 'sound' that comes up but I dont have the drive show up...


Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

thank you.

Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive for a couple seconds.How do I know if all files were transfered? Nothing on screen showed up? I have a HP laptop.


If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


Right Click on My Computer, click on Manage, go to Disk Managment, if the drive is available you will see it there. Check to see if it has a drive letter assigned to it, if not right click on it and choose Change Drive letters. Make sure you are on the external drive though, you don't want to change your C drive accidentally. It should pop up in My Computer.
