Take the hard disk out of that case, put it in another one and plug that in another pc. If it's the same then the disk is dead and all the data on it is lost. Junk it.

You will want to encrypt the hard drive. One of the most popular programs is PGP, it is free and open source. Once this is done, you will will have to enter a password when ever you try to access that drive.

My Iomega eGo 500 GB Extern Hard Drive stopped working, it says that USB is not recognized (I tried in 4 pc's) and LED is ON. What can I do to get it back working?


if that happens after trying it on different computers then it means the magnetic needle inside the drive is broken and will need to be replaced.

Iomega Ego USB is not being detected by any computer I plug it in


Your drive is a coaster. Iomega products seem to be made out of tissue paper and mucilage. You are lucky that it worked for any amount of time at all and wasn't dead right out of the box. Have you tried their online-only tech support? (You can call them for $25 if you want to.)
