Why has The motherboard has stopped working in my ext hard drive case, what can i do


No, that's not required. Open "My Computer" and then right click on it to find the hard drives listed. If it shows up THERE, and isn't showing when you first plug the USB in, then there's nothing wrong other than the computer just isn't recognizing it as Booted to, or as an external hard drive.

My Iomega LDHD250U 250 GB USB External Hard Drive's Power and Usb ports WILLNOT CONNECT!!!!!!! Please help ive been trying to figure out why all day.


Dear Friend, Your I-Omega case might be bad or the controller inside that connects everything. I suggest you to get: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Apricorn-Universal-Hard-Drive-Adapter/10811435. and pulled your hard drive enclosure apart, then removed your hard drive and connect with the external adapter. Usually comes with a SATA or IDE connector for data and power adapter. After connecting everything plug into your PC and it should be able to recognize.
Good Luck#

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.

I have tried connecting my Iomega 250 gb USB 2 Hard Drive to my computer and it is telling me that the unit has malfunctioned. Is there any way of getting the data off it?


First try connecting this USB drive to a different computer.
If this did not work then the USB adapter case is faulty, then remove the hard drive from the case and attach the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then plug it into a working computer's US port. If the hard drive is OK then the computer will see this as an external storage device and you can open the folders and files to backup the data off this hard drive.
If this does not work then there are companies that can recovery data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My iomega does not turn on at all. Have played with all the plugs and tried using a different computer. This is the second iomega drive I've had with this problem.


1. you have a bad power adapter or the electronic controller board in the hard drive case has malfunctioned.
2. You should call the manufacturer for a replacement power adapter or go to the local computer store and purchase a new case for the hard drive.

Disk spins ...then I hear a beep...icon does not show up


The hard disk or the adapter case maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove it form the Iomega case and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK, then the Iomega adapter case is faulty.
Then you need a new hard drive adapter case, it doesn't need to be an Iomega brand.

No Power to External Hard Drive


Do you have access to a multimeter or voltmeter? If you do you can check the voltage coming out of the adapter and make sure it matches what the power adapter says it is. If it doesn't, then it is the power adapter. If it does, then it is the drive or enclosure.
