The external hard-drive is "plug-and-play", and Windows XP/Vista/7 all support "plug-and-play".
Thus, it should automatically be detected by Windows.

So, what's your "real" problem? Symptoms? Error-messages? What happens? What does not happen?

    See the manufacturer's web-site for your specific model:

    FIXYA _truncated_ my reply.
    Instead, click:

    Then, click "Hard Drives".
    Then, click "Not Sure".
    Then, scroll down to the picture that matches your IOMEGA
    ('Desktop Hard Drive Silver Series Hi-Speed USB 2.0'), and click the hyperlink.
    Click 'Will my Iomega product work with Windows 7?'.

    Since your IOMEGA was first announced in March 2005, it will be supported by Windows 7.

    Was it the 'One Touch Backup' software that did not install?

    Does an icon for the drive show up in your 'My Computer' window?

Hi jtenu2,

The reason why you're getting the error message "product does not work with this operating system", is because the software is not compatible with your operating system. The easiest way to solve this error is to check if you're running a 32 or 64 bit operating system. Just right click on my computer then select properties and it will show you the details of your system. If you're using a 64 bit operating system you also need to install a 64 bit software on it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My iomega external hard drive (250GB) is not being detected by my laptop. I tried another laptop and another wire to connect it with the laptop but it didn't work. The light is on and I can hear voice when...

Most hard drives have two parts that you can replace one is the circuit board that controls the read/write head sometimes if you replace this with the exact board with the correct firmware (a few star drive screws) then it might bring the HDD to life.

The sad news is that if the mechanical part of the HDD has failed then it cost you £100's of pounds to recover the data from specialist companies.

Do not despair buy a new one of at least 250GB and you could try the old fridge trick with a zip lock bag overnight I have use this once to get the drive to work for a short time at least then using Windows Commander set it to copy all the folders to the new drive I have recovered about 70% of data from a failed drive this way.
