I cannot see my 'Seagate Expansion 640 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive' listed in 'My Computer' as an option. I need to backup files and cannot drag them to the external hard drive since it does...


Hello, if the drive is new it may just need to be formatted, if it's an existing drive it may have a failed partition.

If it's new, connect it to the computer, right-click on your My Computer or Computer icon and left-click manage. When the management console opens left-click Disk Management, then scroll through the right panel and find your 640GB drive. As long as it's there and unallocated you can right click on the unallocated space and select format. Follow the wizard using the default settings. When you're finished it should show up in My Computer.

If this is an existing drive and has failed, proceed to the management console and see if it shows up, if it does make note of all information show in the right panel and either way report back for further assistance by reply to this response.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

My laptop does not recognize my iomega hard drive


You need to format your drive to work with your Mac. The drive is shipped formatted as NTFS (Windows).
I'm going to assume that you are using Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
1. Open Disk Utility
2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility
3. In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega Hard Drive.
********Make sure you click on the high level icon, not the second level volume icon.********
4. Select the Partition tab.
5. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition.
6. Select the format type from the Format drop-down menu.
Select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (recommended) or Mac OS Extended.
7. Click on the Options button.
8. Select the type of partition you want to use:
GUID Partition Table - for boot ability on Intel-based Macs
Apple Partition Map - for boot ability on PowerPC-based Macs
Master Boot Record - if you will use the drive on a PC as well as your Mac. Use this option ONLY if you selected PC-DOS as the format type.
CAUTION! In most cases, the computer will fail to format the drive as a Mac OS Extended (HFS+) partition using Master Boot Record. For best results, always choose GUID Partition Table (Intel) or Apple Partition Map (PowerPC).
9. Click OK.
10. Click Apply (10.5-10.6) or Partition (10.4). The drive is ready to use when the format completes.

I bought a StoreJet 25M 640 external hard drive. When i try to use it with my MacBook Pro I am told I have to reformat the HDD. Is this right? How do I do this?


It is dependent on whether you are solely going to use the Hard drive with your macbook or whether you may use it on a PC as well. If you are going to use it with just the mac format it in Mac format if with PC and Mac format it for a PC.

You format the drive using disk utility which can be found by opeing up the applications folder and then the utilities folder. Open up disk utility and then on the left hand side select your hard drive, then select erase from the right. For Mac formatting under Volume Format select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" then name the drive and then click "Erase..." For PC formatting under the Volume Format select "MS-DOS (Fat)" Remember reformatting will wipe any information from the drive.

Hope this helps.

Corrupt File System


Well i guess that either your file system is corrupt or your disk is formatted into a filesystem that it's not supported by the backup programs. I don't really know what filesystem is your disk formatted into but usually the FAT32 and FAT16 are the most failsafe file systems for Windows.
So copy/paste the data you don't want to loose and then go to
My computer -> right click on the drive icon -> format and then choose fat 32. Then try backing up your laptop again.

The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.
