Question about Iomega 32936 120 GB Network Hard Drive
The USB cable got stepped on and now the PC won't recognize that anything is connected. I checked the USB port on the PC and it's fine. I changed USB cables to see if it was the cable. No luck. Geek Squad tested it and couldn't get it gecognized either. I can hear the drive spinning. I think the USB input jack on the back of the drive got messed up. The cable does not fit securely into the input anymore. Any suggestions? I'm not an electroinics guy and if I do get the unit open I won't know what needs to be done.
Your best bet especially considering the low cost of these units is to just take the unit apart (take off the bumpers and remove the screws). Once apart you'll see either a 2.5 or 3.5 standard hard drive. Just put this in a new external drive cage and continue on. You can get most of them for around 40 dollars or less. I would recommend Ultra, Vantec Nexstar Series, Iogear or similar brands as their support and documentation is good for people who are not used to doing this.
