Does it show up in your "my computer" You should be able to drag any file into it or just make new folders and then drag files into. Let me know if it still won't work.

    No that is for back up only. Norton has a way to do that from their program. Just make a new folder by right clicking in the white area of the big window.

Ive been using my iomega eGo external hard drive for a couple years now. Today, it wont show up when i plug it into my laptop. The LED is blinking, albeit in a very random rhythm. Any suggestions?


These are some of the most robust external drives available. But, everything breaks. The most likely cause is a failed controller in the case. Remove the drive and put it into a new case.

Enable "File and Print Sharing" on the "old" computer.

Connect the IOMEGA to the "old" computer.
Enable file-sharing on the "root" folder of the IOMEGA.

Connect the "old" computer to one of the LAN ports on a router (wired or wireless).

Connect the "new" computer to another LAN port on the same router.

Make sure that both computers are in the same "workgroup".

From the "new" computer, browse to "show computers in my workgroup".
You should see an icon for the "old" computer.
Double-click that icon to "open" that icon, and you should see all the files on the IOMEGA.

Copy those files to the 'C:' drive on the new computer.

a windows update may have run and killed the drivers...try rolling the system back to before the problem started, then if updates run again..and set them to download but dont install..install them yourself..run updates and see if the problem re-appears.
