Question about Iomega 1TB Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive

Open Question

P/N 31677000 Model MDHD10T-U2 The drive was arranged as a back-up to the internal drives. It worked fine for a good period of time. It the spontaniously stopped working. A consistant clicking sound is evident but the drive does not appear on the desktop. Is there something haywire with the read/write mechanism?

SOURCE: I have an Iomega terrabyte drive model MDHD10T-U2.

If it did this when you first got it, you should have returned it for a refund or exchange. That drive was bad out of the box.

SOURCE: Iomega terrabyte drive MDHD10T-U2 does not mount, ticking noise

I had the same problem and after testing the drives seperately I found them to be in good working order I realized it had something to do with the IOMEGA enclosure. I transfered the drives to a new NexStar MX enclosure. Be sure to read the instructions as you have to move a toggle to the "UP" position. Everything worked fine with no data loss.

Service code U2-05? How do you fix this and do i need to call a professional?


That normally means the hard drive has failed. You can remove the hard drive and it will work except for I believe it is stapling and some other finisher feature.
What you can try is this.
Press # * C * , or as sharp calles it P * C *. The machine will enter diagnostics.
Then enter the number 16 as if making 16 copies. Then press start.
It will say something like U2 trouble clear.
Press start, then select 1 for yes and press start again. Repeat that a couple of times then press clear a few times or turn the power off then back on.

Iomega terrabyte drive MDHD10T-U2 does not mount, ticking noise


I followed richiegrier solution above - my drive began clicking and did not run. I determined both drives worked and that it was the power supply (apparantly I'm not the only one with this problem. I purchased a NexstarMX dual HDD enclosure. I opened it, flipped the switch up to the JBOD mode, and installedd my two drives. Initially the configuration recognized a single 900+ GB drive, which was empty. I used the safely remove hardware icon, powered down the unit, and switched the positions of the drives - VOILA!!! the computer recognized the drives and all the files are back online, precisely. A couple caveats - the drives when in JBOD mode are A and B, although there is no obvious way to tell them apart - Like a book, A appears to have the directory for the combined drive. When mounted in reverse, the computer did not read the directory, and assumed it was empty. When I reversed the drives, my drive came up, flawlessly with no input from me. THANK YOU. Do not format or create a new partition or you will lose data. I also purchased a 2 TB drive for back up, and will immediately begin a second copy of all the data on this drive so I do not have a disaster. Thanks again for saving me from disaster.

The drive fails to be recognised by windows.


USB devices can be flaky and there's no end to stories like yours. I've had a couple, however, that were resolved by simply going into the hardware screen, removing the device, restarting the machine and letting Windows redetect it. It should have retained the driver and will reload it. Also, make sure its not a cable problem... Good luck!
