Scroll down to the second photo, and left-click on it. The case of the external harddrive is shown open. Inside is a 2.5 inch laptop sized harddrive. An aluminum tape strip covers the small circuit board, attached at the back of the harddrive.
The second photo down on this page, shows you the small interface circuit board, that the harddrive plugs into, with the aluminum tape removed.
(Another design has wires coming from the small circuit board, to an interface the harddrive plugs into )
It is this small circuit board that goes bad in a LaCie. QUITE common.
Simple. 1) Obtain a 3.5 inch IDE external enclosure 2) Remove the 3.5 IDE harddrive from the LaCie's case. 3) Install the harddrive out of the LaCie into the external 3.5 IDE enclosure. An example of a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,
Time.dll was probably installed along with some software that came with the HP printer. As time.dll is shared with other applications HP may have removed it during the uninstalling process and either some oter application is looking for it or a command to open it has been left behind. As you say the Dell printer is working well so have alook in your StartUp folder (Documents and Settings/User/Start Menu/Programs?StartUp) and delete any reference to that file of HP Printer. Also look under StartUp by Clicking Start > Run and typing msconfig and uncheck andy reference to HP or the file. If it turns out another pallication needs the file then reinstall that application.
Could you confirm if the problem with the drive not being recognized is a problem with the USB cable? I have a 250GB passport and it worked fine with my XP. Once I decided to reformat it to NTFS and tried to do so by plugging into my new windows7 laptop the problems started.
You could try using another USB port on your computer. Perhaps that USB port you have the IOmega external harddrive plugged into is bad.
More than likely not, though.
The problem is usually inside the IOmega's case. (External enclosure)
Inside that IOmega external harddrive's case is a regular harddrive as used in a desktop, or laptop computer. To explain;
Harddrives are physically rated in width, as well as type, and size. A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches) A desktop harddrive is 3.5 inches.
The larger desktop harddrives are usually used in external harddrives that are 500GB, and larger. (Not always the case when it comes to the 500GB size)
Harddrives have two technologies, or types. IDE (PATA) or SATA.
You didn't state the Model Number so I can't even hazard a guess at this point.
The harddrive inside the case plugs into an Interface. The Interface may be separate, and connected via a cable to a small circuit board, or the Interface may be soldered directly to the small circuit board.
It is this Interface, and circuit board which go bad. The solution is to remove the harddrive inside, purchase an inexpensive external enclosure, and install the harddrive into it.
The external enclosure has a USB cable just like the IOmega external harddrive did.
As stated the harddrive inside is just a normal harddrive. Made by a harddrive manufacturer. Could be a Western Digital, or Seagate, or Hitachi, or Maxtor, or Fujitsu, or IBM, just to name a few. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)
On the harddrive will be a decal with it's specifications. You will also be able to physically measure the width.
This external hookup will support harddrives that are 2.5, or 3.5 inches in width, (And 5.25), plus will support both IDE (PATA) or SATA harddrives,
