Iomega® Home Network HD - The resource name is invalid

I have the Iomega® Home Network Hard Drive and I'm trying to connect it to my PC through the Ethernet. I installed the "Iomega Discovery Tool Home" and found my hard drive on the list but, when I click connect it gives me a message saying "The resource name is invalid, or the named resource cannot be located."

Are there supposed to be any files in the HD it self? Because I did do a reformat on it.

You get the drivers at Iomega.com and look under support to get your drivers.

REMEMBER you need to install those drivers to ONE pc and then have all your computers networked to it thru your network neighborhood. Any other questions, please write back to me, ok?

The drive will not update itself automatically. You will have to download the firmware update and update it yourself. You may also want to get the latest Manager software that is Windows 7 compatible.

Iomega 1TB HD Works on iMac but not on Windows Laptop?


as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

My Iomega Network Hard Drive has a Problem


Reinstalled your network? I'll bet your network setting change gave your computer a new system identifier... and that the Iomega has data encryption set up to prevent anyone other than the original computer name from reading the data. What it sounds like is that when you are trying to connect to it, the Iomega is telling you that you can create a new 7Mb LUN, which is probably allocated as overhead space. Can you connect directly to the Iomega and turn off LUN security and data encryption? I'm not certain how the LUNs are created on this unit or if additional data encryption software was used, but it could be that the LUNs are set up with encryption as well. If the data encryption has it locked down to only present to the original device key, you may have no other choice but to blow away your data and start fresh. If this network hard drive is your only disaster recovery plan, I would suggest that you add a tape device and do an incremental back up this drive daily to a rotating pool of media... and a weekly full backup of everything on your network. A network hard drive is only meant to be a central storage location where multiple hosts can read/write data. The tape backup can then be used to recover your data in case of a disaster... like you've got.
