You can get the driver on Teac's site. The 98se driver you download depends on your serial number, so have that handy.

Good luck...

Hi, guys. Just received your Iomega eGo Helium 500 GB external hard drive and successfully backed up the HD on my MacBook Pro. My question is whether your HD can be formatted/configured so I can also...

Yes all external drives can be formatted but formatting will always wipe off everything on it. If you want to format it you can right click on it when it appears in Windows Explorer. You are usually offered the choice of file system FAT or NTFS. FAT is limited to a file size of about 4 GB, so usually choose NTFS, I am presuming you are talking Windows system. Then you would have to copy your files to it once again.

Can't get my TEAC External Floppy Drive FD-05PUB to be recognised by my Mac Powerbook G4 running OS 10.5.8. Solutions?

Was it ever recognized?
Is it recognized on other computers?

Notebooks sometimes have poor power output on USB sockets; try all available USB sockets, and as a next step try a POWERED USB hub - ie a hub with it's own, separate power supply.

My pc can not recognise the TEAC HD 35 PUK

to start is this the same computer from when the device worked ? , if so there should be two cables one is for power the other is for data , also if there is any clicking noise the HD could be damaged and not spinning up to usable RPM , after plugging in the power and data cable
the HD should automatically show up in in the cache
( bottom right side next to clock ) if not there look in
my computer you should see it next to the C drive
still if no luck check with a new data cable and to make sure the unit is powering up , still if nothing try
another USB , sometimes USBs just stop working with no explanation , still if nothing happens after
checking everything try on another known working computer , if you still have a problem write me back

Hello. It sounds like your external hard drive has crashed, or is getting ready to crash. If you can back up your data, you should do it now. If not, you should get your drive to a professional as soon as possible.

I'll monitor this thread. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Win98se i did it ... HERE'S HOW

OK, I bought this Western Digital MyBook 500 GB Essential Edition too, and could not get it to work with Windows 98 SE.

I followed the above instructions, but my version of windows was missing even the drivers suggested above! UGH!

HOWEVER, I found ANOTHER SOLUTION. I installed USB 2.0 drivers for mass storage and the the MY BOOK icon popped up on my Windows 98 SE machine. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Here are the drivers from this british webpage:

Good luck to all you frustrated folks scooping your info off Windows 98 machines!

Computer does not know external hd is there

How is this drive powered? If it is through the USB, then disconnect all other devices so connected[except for mouse keyboard] You may be make to much demand of the PSU. If it is separately powered then do this Start/Control panel/Ad min Tools/computer management/Storage/disk management to see if the system recognises it. Device manager to checkout the status of the USB. Check also the Bios to ensure the USB devices are on.[only if no other USB devices are running
