Been a ton of problems with these drives and Macs. A huge number of complaints about them not mounting. There is a supposed "mac" version that works better. Good luck.

I forgot the password of my ego iomega encrypt plus and the admin password is also locked ... how do I access the disk ...I am unable to even format it


Hello,
Last time, when my Samsung mobile phone was locked by password, I also forgot the password and tried to disable the password protection functions by using the ways searched over the internet.
Maybe it may also work for your iOMega mobile phone.

How do you get the Iomega eGo Hellium 350GB hard drive to be recognized and initialized by Microsoft Vista Operating system? Have tried the instructions from Iomega and they do not work. The system...


one thing that is possible, is that you may have another drive letter assigned to the letter the iomega is trying to use.

Try this....Click on your start orb and type in Disk Management.
open the Disk Management utility in Windows and see if you see the iomega drive listed in the list of disks on the bottom.

If you DO see the iomega drive there, make sure it shows a healthy partition (It should say something like Fat 32 or NTFS as the file system type...if it shows "RAW" or "damaged" or something like that, you may need to erase and format the drive)

Then, try right clicking on the drive and choosing "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
from there try a new drive letter in case you already have another peripheral using the drive letter the iomega drive is trying to grab. This could cause Windows to recognize the drive but still be unable to see it in your explorer.

Good Luck

I have the eGo Portable Hard Drive USB 2.0. The backup freezes when there's 2 files left in Step 1 of 3. I have to turn computer off because the program doesn't respond to anyhting; not even...


It seems to be hitting a "bad" spot on the disk-drive, so that the "write" of the one block of the file never "completes". Such a "write-one-block" operation cannot be interrupted (it usually completes in a few milliseconds).

Copy all the files from the eGo onto your 'C:' drive, or "burn" onto DVD-writable disks.
Then, replace your external disk-drive, because it is "dying".

Have only just decided to install my new Iomega 500 GB usb 2.0 hard drive and I have mislaid my quick install guide. I have an Apple imac can you help please


Just connect the AC power to the IOMEGA, and the USB cable between the IOMEGA and a USB port on your computer. It is a "plug-and-play" device, and so Apple OS X should automatically recognize it.

I have a iomega eGo HDD and its not showing up on my computer but it shows up under my devices how do I fix that


It depends. If this is the _very_ first time that you have connected the IOMEGA device to your computer, you'll need to "initialize" the HDD for usage by Windows (or Mac OS).
Or, if you've previously done that, and you've written files onto it, and now cannot read those files, you have an entirely-different problem, namely a "hardware" problem.

An external storage device has several major components:

* the USB cable (which in your case, seems OK, since the device is listed)
* the disk-drive inside the enclosure
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure
* optionally, an external power-supply that connects to the enclosure.

Use a multi-meter to measure the voltage/amperage generated by that power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the power-supply's label.

Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing that USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

If the device is still under warranty, IOMEGA will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has terminated, buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it inside the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

I have a iomega 160 ego the lights are on but it will not open or apear on pc what can i do


Take the hard disk out of that case, put it in another one and plug that in another pc. If it's the same then the disk is dead and all the data on it is lost. Junk it.
