Question about Iomega MiniMax Desktop - Hard drive - 500 GB - external - Hi-Speed USB - 7200 rpm - buffe
The above answer is wrong. All MiniMax drive are formatted for Macs out of the box (that why they are shaped exactly the same as a mac Mini).
Try connecting with a USB lead to see if that works.
These units are generally very good (i've installed about a dozen in the last year) but I have known some be DOA (I've only had one). Do other externals work in your FW port? If they do, plug them into one of the other ports on the MiniMax and see if they still work.
There is always a chance that your FW port is faulty - they have been known to need resetting (you'll have to google that as I can't remember the exact procedure - I think a quick way is to disconnect everything from the mac - yes everything! and leave the mac sitting naked and forlorn for about 20 minutes, then reconnect everything including your minimax and power up the mac. With luck it should come on and mount. Let us know what happens.
