Question about Iomega MiniMax Desktop - Hard drive - 500 GB - external - Hi-Speed USB - 7200 rpm - buffe
Macs are exceptionally good machines, if you are still under warranty you can get free support from apple. However at times the apple machines behave very strangely and it is very hard to diagnose the exact reasons for the problem.
There is a software called Onyx; it will search for the programs that are slowing down your mac and then it will suggest you fixes and repairs for the problem. Download it here : http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/system_disk_utilities/onyx.html
Also the problem can be a fragmented hard drive in that case you can utilize the below program to defrag your apple drives.

If you can still connect your external hard drive to your iMac then http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/partitioning_tiger.html follow this link to format your drive using your mac.
If you can't connect to your external drive from your mac; and if you have access to a pc then you can use the ubuntu live cd and use the gparted software in the Ubuntu distribution to format your external drive to hfs volume.
Hope this will help you solve your problem.
