Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive TB, and I can't get it to consistently stay on the network. I initial set it up fine and copied 40 gigs off my mac (10.5.7) onto the drive. And then I connected my PC laptop (XP Home) to it no problem. But when I connected a printer to it It stopped working and now nothing can see it. I took off the printer and it still won't work. I got this drive for storage, but I also really like the print server option, How do I get both to work? Thanks for any help.

you have to initilize the disk in disk management utility, heres how (windows XP)
Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Just double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
In a few seconds, Disk Management will load on the right side of the Computer Management window.
Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the + icon to the left of Storage to expand the option.

Make sure you are at least using a CAT 5 cable with your device. You will want to do a couple things as well. Give your device a static IP address (manually configure the IP) from withing the devices interface (login to your device, System tab on the left and Network tab on the right). Next go to your folders you are wanting to share and click the DLNA button that corresponds with the folder you are wanting your media server to share out. You should be good to go.

SOURCE: I installed the Iomega 1tb
Check tcp ip settings of your harddrive. Make sure it is in the range of your local network. check the ping command from computer if you get reply then it is in network. Then you can use it. Make sure network cable is fine. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Simple type the Ip address of the NAS Drive in the RUN window of your windows pc and hit enter.
Now all the shares appears right click the Share u wish to MAP and select MAP network drive.
That is it.
eg:in run type \\192.168.10.177 then replace the 192.168.10.77 with your address.
