    Is there a site that will tell me how to use my new iomega eGo portable? I need to get instructions as the one page with it when bought told me how to connect but not how to use it..


    Once it is connected, it should show up in your My Computer folder as a removeable drive. You use it like your hard drive on your computer to move and copy files to. Just open your hard drive on your computer, select the files you want to copy or move to the new drive and right click on the selection, click on the send to option on the menu and it will be one of the options to send the files to.

    How can I open my iomega eGo portable


    Carefully pry out the silver ends with a thin flat bladed screw driver. The ends are snapped onto the middle body section by one-way clips so you will probably break one or more of the retention clips. You are almost guaranteed to make cosmetic damage to the silver painted plastic ends though. You should only open it as a last resort ot get the disk drive out or possibly to salvage the SATA to USB controller board if the drive is dead.
