The best USB ports to use are usually the rear ones.sometimes the bios keeps account of the number of connections and then refuses to recognise.if this is the case then you could try going into bios and switching off USB restart and switch it back on to clear the count. Or yes a different USB cable as these can sometimes create read errors.

I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

Iomega external hard drive is not detected. previously it was working fine on my laptop. so i guess it has usb v2. but after i got it repaired for motherboard problem it stopped detecting my external hard...


Hi - Does your laptop have more than one usb port? If so try the drive in it/them. Also, try another device (mouse, etc.) in the USB port(s) and see if it works.
The drive probably (you didn't say which model so I'm not sure where). has a power led somewhere. Does that light up when the drive is plugged into the notebook? If not that would certainly be cause for it to not be recognized.
Lastly, you didn't specify which notebook you have so I can't tell you how to; but upon bootup get into the BIOS setup menu and check any settings for USB and storage devices - don't do this if your not comfortable with it or haven't done it before.
If nothing else works in the USB port(s) it would point to possibly something done while in the repair shop that was an accidental no-no.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

I have an iomega portable hard drive USB 2.0 called eGo. I have been using it with my Macbook. Since yesterday my computer does not recognize my eGo. I have tried to change the USB ports, have restarted...


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

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.

It could be that for some reason it is trying to grab a drive letter that is already being used. As administrator, right click on "My Computer" > Manage > Disk Management. Change the drive letter if needed by choosing "Edit". (You should first check your iomega by connecting it to another computer to make sure it is working properly.) Good luck.

Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.
