Question about Computers & Internet

Corrupt drive Hi Guys, I have an Iomega 80GB Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Silver Drive, which was working fine when disconnected from a machine and was not xfering data when I disconnected it. The machine, running xp home was subsequently restored and reinitialized. I installed updates. When the drive was reconnected to the machine, I recieved a message that the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. I tried it on a laptop running XP pro-same thing. I am hoping that this is a driver issue but am not optimistic. Not much help from the iImega site.

Hi Whisky300,
If you connected the drive after the updates, you may want to manually update and select "Custom" rather than "Express" at the Microsoft update site (with your USB Hard Drive attached), The custom installation will allow you to view and select additional hardware and software updates that the express option won't, and may very well pick up your USB hard drive.
If the above has been tried already or doesn't help, you can give this link a try: https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/iomega_na_en.cfg/php/enduser/cust_alp.php?prod_lvl1=3&prod_lvl2=34&p_prods=3,34&cat_lvl1=50&p_cats=50&p_pv=2.34&p_cv=1.50&p_sid=A52CRS-i
It's an Iomega support and download page for Firewire/USB hard drives.
Good luck.

HI! My iOmega external harddrive has been working fine ever since I got it. But the other day when I syncronized it with my mac, it didn't show any objects. No folders or files, but it says that it is only...


Several things could be happening here:
1. your electronic controller in the hard case has failed.
2. you didn't properly disconnect the external hard drive on the MAC>
3. if you have a power supply to the USB drive it may have a damaged power connector or not supply proper power to the device.
4. the drive may not be supported by the motherboard for your PC.

My computer is not recognizing the drive when I plug it in.


Hi did you try in other computer if yes and still didnt work do you listen any noise on the hard drive .
another thing to do to be sure that the usb ports are working fine in your computer its not been disabled bu bios or an antivirus please plug a flash drive or other hard drive in the computer and see if it gets recognized if yes then your system dosent have any issue .and check the hard drive if it dosent get recognized in the other computer also then may be the partitiontable is corrupt or your iomega hard drive case has problem.
To remove data from your hard drive in the worse case u need to remove the hard drive and plug it to the system directly and check
Thanks

Iomega 320 external hard drive computer wont recognise


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

External drive wont mount


Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :

Check this before you try to edit the registry values. 

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/profiles.1.html

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive.

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive shold be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

You can use the Disk utility in MAC to run the diags on your drive.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
