Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive TB Won't connect and print.

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.

SOURCE: I don't know how to make a wireless connection

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.

Iomega Home Media 1 TB Network Attached Storage 34337 pingable but unavailable


So when you plug it in the a USB port it isn't found by windows?
Option: If you can remove the drive from the case, you can use a drive adapter that will allow you to access the drive itself. If the drive still can't be found in windows you can try Linux. Download Pinguy OS

If you can find the drive in computer manager? Then it might say it needs to be formatted. If you format the drive, you could then use a recover software like Recuva from filehippo.com (Worst Case)
Pinguy linux has great tools to help recover faulty drives also.
If this has help, please give me you vote..

How do i detect the ip of my iomega


you have two options:

1) Install the Iomega management software and it will detect the connected storage at your network automatically, then you will be able to view the IP address
2) connect to your router management console and check the connected devices; if your network is not huge you will be able to locate the device easily

make sure you have the Lenovo storage manager software installed. Make sure you can see the device from the storage manager and all the shares. Once this populates you can then see the shares in quickprotect. I believe quick protect polls Storage manager rather than the actual network.
