Question about Iomega 33089 250 GB Hard Drive
My old G3 MAC running OS 10.3.9 crashed and now wont mount my Iomega USB External Storage Drive. It appears in "About This Mac" but says:
Iomega HDD USB 2.0 Drive:
Capacity: 232.89 GB Removable Media: No Detachable Drive: Yes BSD Name: disk1 OS9 Drivers: Yes Product ID: 126 ($7e) Vendor Name: Iomega Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Bus Power (mA): 500 Serial Number: 03000B1AE6C6
IOMEGADrive: Capacity: 232.76 GB Writable: Yes File System: Journaled HFS+ BSD Name: disk1s10 Mount Point:
If I start up in OS 9 the drive shows up and I can access and open files. There was a file in the OS 9 trash called rescued items from Iomega.
I attached the drive to a G4 I have and it has the same problem except the real Iomega drive icon is used in the in the "About this Mac" USB list instead of a plain gray drive icon.
Any help would be appreciated.
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.
Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.
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.
