Question about Iomega Usb 500Gb 3.5 Desktop Select External Hard Disk Drive Harddrive Hdd Hd
In the F drive it no longer shows my portable drive as Iomega but shows "USB to ATA/ATAPI Bridge"and only shows the drive as 32gb not 500gb.He

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.

When you reset your comp,you also made it forget your usb drive,the drive was formatted to your comp,now it doesnt recognize it,get whatever files you can out of it and format it on your comp.

Testimonial: "problem is the drive which is 500gb is only showing 32gb in the properties. All my photos and files that were on the drive are not visable. I'm not a computer tech person but surely it should show the drive as 500gb?? and I am hoping that somewhere on there is all my personal data. I think I may have to get someone to look at the drive to see if anything can be recovered. thanks anyway"
