Question about Iomega Prestige 500 GB USB 20 Hard Drive
I bought my Iomega 500 Gig external hard drive a few years ago and used it flawlessly with my old computer which ran Windows XP - I bought my new computer over a year ago and it runs Windows 8 - still the Iomega ran flawlessly - the other day I turned it on, I can hear it's motor running normal, light comes on, computer makes the sound to acknowlege it but when I go to "my computer" to accesst he drive, the icon no longer says Iomega - just J drive - I click on the icon and I get a pop up telling me J:\ is not accessible - The disc structure is corrupted and unreadable - any suggestions on how to get my material out of there and/or fix the error?

SOURCE: I have an Iomega external
If you are expert, try to open up casing and directly connect to cpu. But it work if your motherboard is supported with sata. Sometimes, usb port have problem with power. try it if you dont have any solution. I'm also do this and now, my external hard disk became internal hard disk to my pc.
if you dont want, try using other cable, or using other usb port
