SOURCE: I am trying to add more files to my iomega hard

Your external hard drive is formatted NTFS. This is a Microsoft proprietary hard drive format which is why Mac does not have a driver to write to it out of the box. You have two options:

1) You can either make sure to buy Western Digital products which all come formatted FAT32 which is writable by Mac's and PC's (There is a 2GB file limitation, a single file can not be larger than 2GB with FAT32)

2) Install a NTFS driver. The NTFS-3g driver is stable and I have been using it since beginning of 2009 with no problems, you can download it here (http://www.ntfs-3g.org)

SOURCE: where to obtain the driver for an Iomega 31399100 model MHD40-U DISK DRIVE

I've got an external drive I believe it's the same type of drive. I have 250 Meg disk I can insert so you can just keep on filling up 259 disk. Why I stopped using this external drive us well you can get memory sticks that store terabytes now for the prices 1/10 the cost as one 250 dis. I know what you're wanting is a way to get the pictures back. Mine you just plugged into a USB port on a Windows 7 or above operating system and it found the driver. If your drive is the same type try finding another windows computer and plug the drive into it. I bet it will find and load the driver needed to get your pictures off. Unless and this is a big unless you're disk is corrupted. There are still tech shops that can read disk sector by Sector and pull off you're data for you. It's a little time consuming because it doesn't rely on the drive or computer they literally read the hexadecimal code then print it out for you.

Iomega LPHD-UP 500GB power issue?


The fault sounds like a power supply problem. The USB port on your computer supplies up to a max. 500MA and this may not be sufficient for the external hard drive to work properly.
I suggest you get a new AC power adapter for this drive.

You can change the permissions on any given folder, drive or volume by clicking it once and selecting "Get Info."

Then, to change the access and/or permissions, in the lower right hand corner of the Get Info window, click the lock icon and enter your password.
Once it's unlocked, change the entry next to your username where it says [yourusername])(me) to Read/Write.
Then, click on the little gear icon and choose 'Apple to Enclosed Items.' It will ask you if you're sure, tell it yes.
If you do not see your username in the list, click the plus icon to add it, then follow the steps above.

Possibly you may have some file on the computer that needs deleted. Some of your other problems seem to be part of the normal hi-jacking from going to web sites. Make sure you have a updated Anti Virus, Registry fix, disk cleaner. and necessary software on your computer? You might go through those files that you want to tranfer, and delete out one's you really won't need, and see if that helps. I have a feeling it will if you delete the right one. A real good disk cleaner might do the job.

Complete user manual as said to be available in document with product SPHDU2 I need more detail than "drad and drop copies of your critical files onto the drive" I am computer iliterate


Open "My Documents".
Hold the CTRL key down, and click the mouse on the first file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, click the mouse on the next file/folder that you want to copy.
While holding the CTRL key down, keep clicking to "add" more files/folders to your "selected" objects.

Release the CTRL key.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on one of the selected files/folders.
Point at "Send To".
Click on the icon for your your IOMEGA device.
The selected files/folders will be copied.

When the 'copy' completes, do _NOT_ delete your original files.
Instead, keep those original files in your 'My Documents' folder,
and keep the copy on the IOMEGA. That way, if your C: disk-drive fails,
or if the IOMEGA fails, then you still have _ONE_ copy of your files.

External drive wont mount


Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :

Check this before you try to edit the registry values. 

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/profiles.1.html

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive.

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

You can use the Disk utility in MAC to run the diags on your drive.

Good Luck.
