Question about Iomega (33654) Limited Edition 500 GB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Iomega limited edition 500 GB

When I turn it on, it makes a noise like it's trying to run with a light click sound. After about 10 minutes it gets quiet but my computer does not recognize it. I've only had this 1 1/2 months.

I have no idea what's wrong with the HD, but since mine is dead, I strongly recommend removing your info while it's still working. At least you got a little warning in advance. As well, I've found that Iomega was pretty cool about exchanging faulty equipment, that's still under warranty. If you go in there on your own, you void the warranty.
Best of luck

My iomega 500gb external hard drive has a broken.


My Iomega (33654) 500GB USB isn't working. When I turn it on the blue light comes on for a few seconds. I can hear / feel it working but then the light goes off (it is still whirring inside). The computer isn't recognising it. I think it's still under guarantee but I can't find the paperwork. Do you have any ideas?

If the power LED is on, it points to a problem with either the disk itself or the housing circuit board. I would open the case up to see what sort of hard drive it is (IDE or SATA) and then get as cheap hard drive housing from Maplin or similar to put the disk into.

Problems adding files onto the hardrive


This sounds as though the Iomega has got locked somehow.
Do a get info on its desktop icon and have a look at the lock checkbox. Also look at the write permissions while you are there.

Iomega 500 gb hard drive: large file transfers


The default format for the IOMega drive is FAT32. This format will work on all versions of Windows, as well as Mac OS9 and above. Unfortunately, FAT32 can't handle files larger than 4gigs. If you want to use larger files, you're going to have to remove all the files from your IOMega drive and use your computer to format it to NTFS (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) or HFS+ (Mac OS9/X).

Consult your owner's manual for specific details.
