I have a 1 Terabyte Iomega hard drive model # MDHD10T-UT Serial # JPA80302B8 I just stopped showing up on my desktop and I can not mount it. I have tried Disk Warrior, Data Rescue II and FileSalvage. Still no luck. The light for the drive goes on but it doesn't show up as connected no matter what I do. Can the drive be repaired?

    My iomega terabyte fell on the floor... now it makes a clicking noise and its not recognized in the computer... and it is turning off after 2 min when I try to start it.. what to do?

    Ok this is tough because sadly it sounds like the hard drive is phisically damaged. you will need a data recovery specialist to retrieve your data they can be found easily enough on google but they dont come cheap so weigh up the expense to the importance of retrievel. the problem is if it was software or bad clusters theres algorythem software out there to put it right but as it is making a noise it would show that the reading arm inside have probably broken meaning the hard drive needs to be taken apart and the disks reading individually hence the specialist needed

    Terabyte iomega hard drive, the two lights are flashing red, fan not operating, no access via My Computer.

    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.

    Iomega terrabyte drive MDHD10T-U2 does not mount, ticking noise

    I followed richiegrier solution above - my drive began clicking and did not run. I determined both drives worked and that it was the power supply (apparantly I'm not the only one with this problem. I purchased a NexstarMX dual HDD enclosure. I opened it, flipped the switch up to the JBOD mode, and installedd my two drives. Initially the configuration recognized a single 900+ GB drive, which was empty. I used the safely remove hardware icon, powered down the unit, and switched the positions of the drives - VOILA!!! the computer recognized the drives and all the files are back online, precisely. A couple caveats - the drives when in JBOD mode are A and B, although there is no obvious way to tell them apart - Like a book, A appears to have the directory for the combined drive. When mounted in reverse, the computer did not read the directory, and assumed it was empty. When I reversed the drives, my drive came up, flawlessly with no input from me. THANK YOU. Do not format or create a new partition or you will lose data. I also purchased a 2 TB drive for back up, and will immediately begin a second copy of all the data on this drive so I do not have a disaster. Thanks again for saving me from disaster.

    1T external will not mount on Mac OSX. It worked fine but just stopped. Have tried other computers and cables but nothing. It is getting power. Model #MDHD10T-U2 Serial #JPA7470874

    This needs to be formatted before it can be used on a Mac.
    1. Launch Disk Utility by selecting ApplicationsUtilitiesDisk Utilities
    2. Click on the active partition to select it.
    3. Click on the Erase tab.
    4. Select MS-DOS (FAT) from the Volume Format drop-down menu.
    5. Click on the Erase button.
    6. When Disk Utility is finished erasing the disk, click on the active partition and ensure that the Format field at the bottom of the Disk Utility window says that the volume is MS-DOS (FAT32).
    7. You can now quit Disk Utility.
