Need to reformat iomega 34275 from Mac to PC


Plug hdd to usb, after that, right click on my computer and go to manage, there go to disk management. You should see there all hard drives connected to your computer. Here localize your external hdd and see if it is initialized (you'l see in the right side of device the status), if it's not initialized right click on that area and initialize the hdd. After that go on the left side again right click and there could be two ways to format these hdd
1. if windows see something on hdd right click and go to format and follow the instructions from there
2. if windows don't see any partition there you must create one. Right click on hdd and select create new partition and after that follow instruction on your screen

Hi I have an apple mac laptop and have plugged my new iomega 320gb 2.5 select portable hard drive. The problem is im trying to drag movies accross however it wont let me?


Portable devices such as USB disks (in most UNIX based operating systems) will be mounted as READ-ONLY. Remember the old floppy disk with a slide switch to make them READ-WRITE? same principal.
Try right clicking (MAC uses double finger click together) on the Desktop Icon that appears after you plug in the USB drive... is there an option to select READ-WRITE?
let us know if that was it.

How do I reformat my Iomega eGo hard drive so that it is compatible with my Mac? OSX 10.6.6 The current IOmega format is FAT


First of all, connect the Iomega to you mac, make sure it powers up and is detected by the Mac. Now follow these steps: ( It's important to note the Drive before you begin this task so that you may not make any mistakes.)
  • Open the system drive, usually titled "Macintosh HD." Open Applications, then Utilities and double click the "Disk Utility" program to open it. A window will open giving a list of all the drives currently mounted on the computer.
  • Select the disk that needs to be formatted on the left.
  • Click on the "Erase" tab to the right of the list of drives. The window will now display the options for erasing the hard drive and formatting it to work on the Macintosh computer.
  • Select the Volume Format from the pop-up list. In most cases it's best to leave it at "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as this is the default. This setting is the best option for running Mac OS X. If there are other requirements for the disk, then select the format that best suits your needs. If you have questions about the formats, refer to your Apple user's manual.
  • Name the hard drive. Type a name for the disk in the field where it asks for the name. This name will always appear when the disk is mounted on a Macintosh computer.
  • Click the erase button. A window will open asking to verify the erase procedure. Click the erase button in this window to start the process of erasing the disk. Once the process is complete, the drive will appear with the name it was given on the left side of the window with the list of drives and on the desktop of the Macintosh computer.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Is the iomega prestige desktop hard drive compatible with the macbook version 10.4.11


dblingest:
According to the datasheet for this product (click here), the drive is compatible with Macs.
If you want to use the drive on both Windows and Macs, you'll need to leave it formatted as FAT32, but if it will only be used with Macs, I would reformat it as HFS using the Disk Utility application that is located in /Applications/Utilities. Formatting with HFS will all for more efficient use of the space on the drive.
Please ask follow-up questions as needed and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, I have an iomega Prestige 2tb desktop hard drive which i was using on a PC but now want to use it for my macbook pro. How do i reformat the hard drive for Mac? Thankyou


Connect it to your Mac and open Disk Utility. Find the disk in the left pane of the Disk Utility window, click on it, then click the Erase tab in the right pane. Choose your format, then click the Erase button. If the disk does not appear in the left pane or is grayed out, click the Erase or Partition tab first, then select the disk.

Note: the "MS-DOS" format is the FAT-32 filing system. You will have to partition the volume (Partition tab) to use it since FAT-32 cannot cover the entire drive in one partition (I think it is limited to 80 GB). Microsoft won't let Apple use an NTFS volume for Write operations, but FAT-32 can be read and written by both Mac and Windows systems. If you think you may want to use the drive to share files with the PC, make two partitions - one formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and a smaller one formatted as FAT-32.

Any Hard drives before getting to used with MAC OsX has to be formatted according to the MAC file system...
I think that is the problem you are facing...
Make sure your hard disk is not formatted for any windows OS and try to reformat for MAC OsX...
It should work...

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

Can't format new Iomega 1 TB drive on a mac


the mbr has been lost and may be the boot files too. this happens if sector zero is bad or weak
use a windows pc .and remove the raw drive from the casing of this external drive. now hook it into the windows pc and see for the drive detection in bios. if detected the drive is ok and needs a good low level formatting. with a llf tool you can get one free from hddguru.com
