Question about Iomega Computers & Internet
I am a data recovery specialist with Armor-IT(in the FixYa directory). From what you have described the hard power down, or the lockup that caused it has likely damaged the partition tables or even the devices themselves. Bad news is there are no "safe" ways you can retrieve this data without proper facilities. The good news is ours is only one of dozens in North America.
If you comment back with your Country, State and City I can refer you to either our company or one nearer you depending on your location.
The other good news is this type of failure is almost always recoverable in a proper facility.
Please comment back with the above info and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction.

1 ***** the size of
files you need for taking the backup. Files having graphics, sound and videos
occupy more space than a simple text file.
2 Plan the future
requirements and consider the space needed accordingly.
3 Choose an
external drive of 20 GB or above to store huge data backups.
4 Get an external hard
drive and connecting cables to attach the drive to your computer.
5 Select the data you
want for backup. Organize the data into folders and sub-folders for easy find.
Financial data, digital photos and music can form priority data for backup.
6 Connect the drive
to your computer. Use the drag and drop options for taking the backup.
7 Remove the drive
after properly ejecting by right clicking on the task bar on the desktop.
8 Keep the external
drive away from the place where you have your computer when done. If your
computer gets damaged due to any unforeseen reason, you will have your entire
data safe in the external hard drive. It minimizes the risk of data loss.
