SOURCE: 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.

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

Good Luck.

SOURCE: dropped an Iomega 500gig external hard drive...

Hello,

From what I can deduce here, it seems that you the hard drive probably has a bad sector on it.

That clicking sound that you are hearing from the Hard Drive is coming from the read/write head inside the hard drive.

In this case, what I would advise you to do is, unscrew the hard drive case and remove the Hard disk from the case, connect it directly to a system, not externally or through USB this time around, then get a software called NTFS DOS Professional. It is a software that works like magic when it comes to hard drive repairs.

If you know any other hard drive utility, apart from this, you can also use it. I just recommend this personally because that is what I use.

Insert it into your PC, start up your CD-ROM and let your system boot from CD-ROM.

It works through DOS, and it should be able to help you with it.

If this does not solve the problem, then I'm afraid you might need to replace the hard drive.

And if it repairs it, I would suggest that you just retrieve all your valuable files from it and don't fully rely on the hard drive again because of the hardware error it has developed. Just keep using it as a second.

If you cannot do this by yourself, just get a very good technician to do it for you instead.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps.

Goodluck.

SOURCE: Iomega hard drives seem to give my MAc finder brain freeze

It's possible that ONE (or maybe BOTH) of the drives are defective. Disconnect one of them, and continue to use your computer. If the "freeze" never appears, then the non-connected drive is defective, and, since it is a "new" drive, you can get it replaced, for free, under warranty. If the "freeze" appears, then the currently-connected drive is defective, and needs to be replaced.

My iomega is not showing up on my laptop?


The best USB ports to use are usually the rear ones.sometimes the bios keeps account of the number of connections and then refuses to recognise.if this is the case then you could try going into bios and switching off USB restart and switch it back on to clear the count. Or yes a different USB cable as these can sometimes create read errors.

The most likely cause is the 1Tb hdd has an NTFSfile system and the 4gb usb is a FAT32. To check, right-click on the drive in "My Computer" and look for "File System". it's right above the storage information.

Hello there!

there could be problem with your HDD aswell, somethimes usb dont want to recognise some external devices and it shows that error also known as "yellow message".

On your place i would backup all files there and do one format of that for cleaning, who knows what might be in it aswell, some viruses, trojans, ...

If that havent solved your problem, then open up your pc and check look of your motheboard (if you have some eltronic experience you could check joins on it as well with voltmeter) . Thats it.
