In disk utility, look for both names on the left pane. The volume name is on top  with the partition name below. Both should be in Jet black and be selectable. If the drive is Dark int he list, it should be mounted on your desktop. In th disk utility window, choose first aid, then repair disk/repair disk permissions. You may need to run diagnostics on th drive to test its stability.

Hello, my Iomega 34579 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive was working ok in my MAC but I've plugged it into my pc and it does'nt work, what do I have to do?

You probably formatted it as HFS+ to work with your Mac. Windows cannot do anything with that format. If you are wanting to use the drive with both Windows and Mac, you are going to have to format the drive as FAT32. There is a 4GB per file size limitation with FAT32. Otherwise there isn't anything that you can do.
To format your drive as FAT32 with a Mac OS X, Version 10.4 and above:
1. Make sure you have copied any needed files to another location. 2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility
In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega drive or disk.
Make sure you click on the high level orange drive icon, not the second level volume icon.
3. Select the Partition tab. 4. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition. 5. Click on the Options button. 6. Select Master Boot Record as the partition type. 7. Click the Format drop-down menu and select MS-DOS File System as the format type. 8. Click OK. 9. Click the Partition button

Use my drive on Mac..

Both OSs have different Security Architectures. NTFS for Windows and HFS+ for MAC. So if you modify these permissions (you could) your MAC OS might not be able to access it properly. But MAC will read NTFS permission (But not write onto the disk).

I can not locate a driver for my Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive. Do you know where?

Your device should not need drivers Fte Fantom/Titanium drives are fully supported by both Windows and Mac OS's.
Try replacing the cable or using a different USB port.
Sorry I cannot be of more help, The drive itself may be damaged, You can test this by physically removing the drive itself from the case and installing it internally to your system....If the drive functions properly, then the problem is within the board inside the casing.
