My Vista machine can't see the iomega network drive

I added a 1 tb iomega network drive. My XP laptop can connect to it but my Vista machine can't seem to see it. The iomega is plugged into the back of my wireless router. My Vista machine can get to the internet just fine through the same router, but can't seem to see the network drive.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

You need to connect to the IOmega drive using windows xp and add a user.
In the explorer view in Vista at the top click on Map Network Drive.
At the bottom click "Connect using a different username" and enter the credentials that you created earlier.
In the box above for the location type in "\\IOmega's IP Address\Folder that you want to map".
Click on connect at the bottom should be done straight away and then you should be able to see it in "Network Places" as well. Let me know if this fixes the problem or not.

Iomega Home Media 1 TB Network Attached Storage 34337 pingable but unavailable

So when you plug it in the a USB port it isn't found by windows?
Option: If you can remove the drive from the case, you can use a drive adapter that will allow you to access the drive itself. If the drive still can't be found in windows you can try Linux. Download Pinguy OS


If you can find the drive in computer manager? Then it might say it needs to be formatted. If you format the drive, you could then use a recover software like Recuva from (Worst Case)
Pinguy linux has great tools to help recover faulty drives also.
If this has help, please give me you vote..

You need to format your drive as FAT32.
If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you will have to google search for a FAT23 formatting tool. So take your data off the drive. Format the drive, put your files back on the drive and your good to go.
There is a 4GB per file size limitation with FAT32!

Make sure you are at least using a CAT 5 cable with your device. You will want to do a couple things as well. Give your device a static IP address (manually configure the IP) from withing the devices interface (login to your device, System tab on the left and Network tab on the right). Next go to your folders you are wanting to share and click the DLNA button that corresponds with the folder you are wanting your media server to share out. You should be good to go.

Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium

Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.
