Question about Iomega Computers & Internet
This indicates the drive has failed, which is common for any drive, but for some reason Iomega's drives are notorious for this. Sadly the drive is "bad" so to speak. If you happened to buy it with a credit card you may be in some luck as far as you can get a refund at least on the drive. There is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

Please connect it on another computer and format it from the command prompt. Once it's connected, note the Drive letter, i.e. E: or F: or which one. Now open the command prompt by clicking "Start", then "Run" (windows xp) or "Start Search" box (win vista and win 7) and type in "cmd" (without quotes), press enter. The commands are as follows, I'll assume it's drive letter is F:, in the command prompt window, type in "F:", press enter, then "format F:", again "yes" or "Y", you will need to confirm another warning, simply press enter and proceed, may take some time. After it's completed, you'll see another message, asking you to assign the volume name, give any name you like and press enter. That's all, if this doesn't fix, let me know.
The problem with this issue might be virus or drive partition corrupted or some technical/mechanical issues with the Hard drive. If it's infected by virus, then you should understand that the virus might still infect your system and so it is not possible to format it from your computer. On the other hand, you should check the usb cable and the adapter, and make sure they are properly connected and cleaned.
Let me know when you are done.
Thanks for using FixYa.
