Iomega portable hard drives connect to your computer through a USB port. When you connect the Iomega hard drive to your computer, it should pop up as an icon in your My Computer folder. If you can't find the icon in your My Computer folder then you probably need to update the driver for the device. Updating this driver is not very hard and can be done automatically from the Windows Device Manager.

Plug your Iomega hard drive into one of your computer's USB port. Click the "Start" button and go to the "Run" field. Type "Devmgmt.msc" into the Run box and press the "Enter" key. Go down to the bottom of the device manager to the "Universal Serial Bus Controller." Click on the little + (plus) sign to expand it. Look for an entry with a yellow exclamation point and click on it. Click the "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" button and then click the "Next" button. Click the "Finish" button when the installation has finished. Go to the "My Computer" folder from your "Start" menu and locate the Iomega hard drive icon. Double click the icon to gain access to the external hard drive. Hope it helps.

no --there are no engineers at fixya site
from your description the aux hard drive has failed
Most hard drives using discs are good for around 3 years max and then the bushes and bearings fail
If that is the case then you will have to find a repair shop that has the capability to remove the disc from the hard drive and recover all that you have saved
if it as what I have suggested then consider this
There are hard drives (SSHD) on the market that use solid state technology and do not have spinning discs that fail over time
The cost is around $60.00 per gig of storage
best if you take it to a computer repair shop for a proper diagnosis and while there discuss the SSHD technology to prevent failures in future

My iomega external hard drive is not being recognised in 'My Computer' but is in the device manager. Software updated. Not sure what to try next to use it?


Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

1. With the device connected to the usb port Right click on My Computer choose
manage. On the left side make sure storage is expanded double click disk
management on the left upper side see if Iomega is listed.

2. If it is on the lower part find your Iomega right click on it choose change
drive letter and paths. Click on change, you will see a drop down arrow click
that choose the first available letter, Now click on change. Open My Computer see
if it is now listed. If it is you are done.

3. With the device connected to the usb port reboot your computer when it comes
back,open My Computer see if it is now listed.

Iomega 320 external hard drive computer wont recognise


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Problem with Iomega Portable Hard Drive


Sounds like the drive is dead, even though it powers up the disk might not be spinning or the read heads could be stuck. Depending on the data you have on it and if you have it backed up or not, you could send it out for to have the data pulled off it but I warn you it is not cheap.
