My daugher connect my precious Screen Play Iomega

My daugher connected my precious Screen Play Iomega 1TB to her dying laptop to try to copy some photos. She didn't manage to do it as the disc started to go on and on and was not recognized. She gave up and now, when I connect it to the TV it says ''HD Fatal Error'' and stops working. The blue light never appeared again. Just some inside growling when I power up and then nothing. Is there a solution for this? Please??

There's really not much to troubleshoot other than reseating all connections and recycling power. Are you connecting this drive via usb cable? It's rare but it's possible for a cable itself to go bad or the usb port on the pc/laptop.
Once you rule out those things, then you can say the hd is bad.
If it's still under warranty, get in touch with the vendor for a replacement. It would cost around $1000 to $2000 for data recovery so if it's worth that to you, I'd recommend either Ontrak or Cherry Systems. Both are good companies.

Iomega eGo Helium 1TB has a damaged PCB. Local 1TB Casing do detects the HDD and its Drives. BUT asks for Formating the Drives. Which case can be purchased. how to recover the data. ?


It might be tricky, but you can remove the hdd from its casing, and install into a pc with compatible connections as a slave drive. Make sure to handle the drive carefully, and try to copy any data you want to another drive on the pc, then run chkdsk X: /f /r on the affected drive.
Another possible solution is to rightclick on My Computer, Manage, go to the drive mangement menu, and rightclick on the drive, and import it into your system so that windows can recognize it.

Iomega 1TB HD Works on iMac but not on Windows Laptop?


as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

Hello, I plugged in my iomega 1tb desktop hard drive storage device and the drive does not appear in my drive or computer. I do have the new hardware 'sound' that comes up but I dont have the drive show up...


Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

thank you.

Iomega desktop hard drive doesnt connect to computer


Your pc is generally configured to save all stuff to C drive as its default. You could then cut and past it into your new drive or when you are downloading specify the drive letter of you 1tb drive to save to. If you do not do this it is normal for it to save to C drive-that is also what mine does. I doubt anything is wrong-it is just the default drive. It soulnds like it is connected-copy and paste something onto it to test it(dont cut and paste at this point as you need to be certain it works. When you have done this,, open up whatever you copied onto it and ensure it is ok.
