Question about Iomega 160GB Ego HD USB 2.0/FW Red 160 GB Hard Drive
I was using indesign and photoshop and had shut my macbookpro and was in sleep mode. when I returned and opened my computer indesign was frozen trying to link the updated photoshop files. I force quit indesign and ended up shutting my computer down. When I started the computer and tried to find My Iomega drive it could not recognize it. And no matter what computer I plug it into it keeps making an electronic galloping noise and then eventually stops. I don't care about the drive or its well being I need to get the files off. Please help if you have any expertise.
Your drive is a coaster. Iomega products seem to be made out of tissue paper and mucilage. You are lucky that it worked for any amount of time at all and wasn't dead right out of the box. Have you tried their online-only tech support? (You can call them for $25 if you want to.)
