Retrieving data off Iomega 35 GB Rev Disk

My computer does not recognize my Iomega 35 GB Rev Drive anymore. Tech support says I have to buy a new one. Any ideas on how to get the information off the REV disk without spending $200 for a new Rev drive?

Send me the old drive and cartilage. I will get the data off and put it on dvd's and send the dvd's back to you and keep the drive and cartilage for parts. I have several rev 30's and rev 70'S.

How do you get the Iomega eGo Hellium 350GB hard drive to be recognized and initialized by Microsoft Vista Operating system? Have tried the instructions from Iomega and they do not work. The system...


one thing that is possible, is that you may have another drive letter assigned to the letter the iomega is trying to use.

Try this....Click on your start orb and type in Disk Management.
open the Disk Management utility in Windows and see if you see the iomega drive listed in the list of disks on the bottom.

If you DO see the iomega drive there, make sure it shows a healthy partition (It should say something like Fat 32 or NTFS as the file system type...if it shows "RAW" or "damaged" or something like that, you may need to erase and format the drive)

Then, try right clicking on the drive and choosing "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
from there try a new drive letter in case you already have another peripheral using the drive letter the iomega drive is trying to grab. This could cause Windows to recognize the drive but still be unable to see it in your explorer.

Good Luck

My computer refuses to recognize the external hard drive what do i do


Hello there,

What type of OS are you running ( Windows # )

What type of motherboard

Here is what i would do to start off with,


STEP ONE - Check all connections
  1. Unplug the USB data cable from the drive and the computer.
  2. Check the ends of the USB data cable to ensure that they are not damaged.
  3. Reconnect the USB data cable to the drive and the computer. Check the connections to ensure that they are secure.

    Note: If you have a Portable Hard Drive with a 2-line USB/power cable, connect both the data line and the supplemental power line (usually marked with a lightning bolt icon) to USB ports on the computer. If the status light on the drive glows steadily, the drive is receiving power. Go to step E.
  4. If you are connecting an Iomega Desktop Hard Drive, check the power supply connections to the drive and power outlet to ensure that they are secure.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Double click the Computer or My Computer to see if the Iomega Hard Drive is detected.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is detected, you can now use the drive.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is not detected, please try another USB cable and/or power supply (if available). If the Iomega Hard Drive is still not detected, continue with the next step.

if that doesn't work go to this helpful site and follow the Steps one by one to fix this problem

Have only just decided to install my new Iomega 500 GB usb 2.0 hard drive and I have mislaid my quick install guide. I have an Apple imac can you help please


Just connect the AC power to the IOMEGA, and the USB cable between the IOMEGA and a USB port on your computer. It is a "plug-and-play" device, and so Apple OS X should automatically recognize it.

    Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


    This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.

    Hard drive not recognized


    is damaged my friend. Hard drives are very, very delicate pieces of equipment. The disk is paper thin and any sudden jarring, especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. Unplug it to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

    The drive not reading


    Hello folks,

    Sounds like both units are suffering from hardware failure. The most likely culprits are failed USB/1394 to IDE/SATA circuitry or failed drives.

    The simplest test/solution is to buy a new, empty, drive enclosure and transfer your drive into it. Test that enclosure, if it works, the drive is fine your done.

    If it doesn't the failure is in the drive itself and if you have important files on the drive you will require the help of a pro. State your region and city and I will give you a recommendation for a professional data recovery service.

    Have you looked both in Device Manager and in Disk Management?
    Have you tried plugging your external hard drive into another computer?  
    If it isn't recognized on multiple computers, then you are probably experiencing a hardware failure.  
    There are a variety of things that can malfunction on your external hard drive:

    1) The USB cable - Have you tried switching the USB cable? 
    2) The external hard drive casing 
    3)  The hard drive itself 

    If your hard drive casing has malfunctioned, then retrieving your data is as simple as putting the hard drive inside another hard drive enclosure.  Hard drive enclosures are available at any local computer store, and also available on our website.  Make sure to get the right size enclosure.  The I250HD35 has a 3.5" Hard Drive inside it, which is a standard desktop hard drive.

    If you put your hard drive in another enclosure and it still won't show up on any of your computers, then your best bet at retrieving your data is to contact a data recovery specialist.   After you have retrieved your data, we will replace your unit if you are still within the warranty period. For specific warranty and replacement information, go to www.iomagic.com and click on Support.
     
    Have a nice day,
