Make sure that your computer has usb2 ports. Older computer have usb1 ports. A 1 tb hard drive may require the newer faster usb2 port. If it is a desktop computer you can get usb2 cards or if it is a laptop you can get a usb2 converter. You may just have a driver issue. try the cd that came with the hard drive. Make sure your system is compatible.

SOURCE: What does it mean when my 1TB Iomega external

Hi,

This generally means you have a hardware failure in the drive or enclosure. The simplest way to test which is to have a hardware tech move the drive into a new enclosure and see if it works.

This will void your warranty if you do it, so, if the drive is under warranty and there are no files you consider valuable on the drive, call the manufacturer for warranty support.

If you value the data more than the drive is worth then take it to your local hardware vendor and ask them to test the hard drive in a new enclosure. Good odds it will work this way but if not you may need the help of a data recovery specialist. In North America I use Armor-IT, if you are in a different region and the new enclosure fails to garner results, comment back with your region(Country, State, City) and I will supply you with the closest reputable facility.

SOURCE: cannot copy files to Iomega 500 GB external hard drive.

It depends on how you formatted the the drive.
If it was formatted FAT it will work on both Mac and PC.
If you formatted to HFS+ (the native mac format) then it will only work on a mac.

Iomega LDHD-UP hard drive containing dj music and will not read device on any computer to retrieve music


Sounds like the drive might have died. Only way to tell is to install a program like "Hard Disk Sentinel" to check it, It displays a lot of information that may not be of use, but it does tell you the health status of the drive at the top of the program.

My iomega hard drive doesnt appear under my computer, it appears in dev. mgr but cannot assign a letter. Windows makes a sound to recognise its there, its says usb recognised and ready to go. just cant...


Iomega portable hard drives connect to your computer through a USB port. When you connect the Iomega hard drive to your computer, it should pop up as an icon in your My Computer folder. If you can't find the icon in your My Computer folder then you probably need to update the driver for the device. Updating this driver is not very hard and can be done automatically from the Windows Device Manager.

Plug your Iomega hard drive into one of your computer's USB port. Click the "Start" button and go to the "Run" field. Type "Devmgmt.msc" into the Run box and press the "Enter" key. Go down to the bottom of the device manager to the "Universal Serial Bus Controller." Click on the little + (plus) sign to expand it. Look for an entry with a yellow exclamation point and click on it. Click the "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" button and then click the "Next" button. Click the "Finish" button when the installation has finished. Go to the "My Computer" folder from your "Start" menu and locate the Iomega hard drive icon. Double click the icon to gain access to the external hard drive. Hope it helps.

According the the website, the manual is on the drive. To get to it all you need to do is first plug power into the hard drive. Then plug the USB cable from the hard drive into the computer you are using. Then go into My Computer and select the drive. You should see the manual there. If you cannot read the file download this and install this: http://get.adobe.com/reader/. It is a pdf reader which is what the manual file is going to be.

I have a DVD player with a USB port. When I connected the iomega drive , the dvd player can not read the hard drive. However if an USB 4GB onnects to the player , It will read?


The most likely cause is the 1Tb hdd has an NTFSfile system and the 4gb usb is a FAT32. To check, right-click on the drive in "My Computer" and look for "File System". it's right above the storage information.

Problem with Iomega Portable Hard Drive


Sounds like the drive is dead, even though it powers up the disk might not be spinning or the read heads could be stuck. Depending on the data you have on it and if you have it backed up or not, you could send it out for to have the data pulled off it but I warn you it is not cheap.
