I recently restored to factory settings on my HP laptop.once restored I then input my Iomega drive into the USB port to access some of my saved files.


Just to be on the safe side, why not plug in your iomega drive into another known working computer and see what happens. If it works fine and is properly recognized then the anomaly lies within the software of your laptop.

U might want to contact HP - but be fore warned that they are terrible for support if your unit is "out of warranty." If that is the case I would simply google the anomaly and in all likelihood you will get links that will help you fix it yourself.

WHEN I TRY TO PLUG IN A HARD DRIVE OR A PRINTER INTO ANY USB SOCKET I GET A MESSAGE SAYING USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED BUT IT WILL PICK UP A FLASH DRIVE PLEASE HELP


Is it an external/portable hard drive? Use the rear USB panel, if problems persist, try using your hard drive on another PC. And if you're still having problems, try replacing the USB cables of both the hard drive and printer. If it works on another PC/laptop, buy a PCI USB panel, and install it on the PCI slot of the motherboard. Hope This will help you.

hi there, i to have an iomega external drive, have you tried to disconnect the cable, i.e.. the usb cord and restarting the computer and pluging in the hard drive itself back into the usb slot.....if yes i am thinking, another thing is, wha operating system are you using, if it is vista and you restarted the computer with it pluged in you must restart it without the iomega plugged into the computer, when an external drive is plugged in and the system resatrts vista recognizes it as an internal drive and tries to reboot from it....i am not sure why vista does this, it happens to me and microsoft says it's a protection thing, from hacker hardware components......so all usb things should be replugged into the computer after vista has started with just the regular things...microphones and such are ok....just things with mass storage are what need to be unplugged and replugged into the computer after reboot....hope this helps....shia

My iomega 80gb portable hard drive has stopped being recognised by my mac. Have plugged it into a pc and the following messgae appears: WINDOWS-DRIVE NOT READY The drive is not ready for use it's...


If the drive will spin and the read/write heads are not damaged you can attach an ide to usb adapter to the drive after you take it out of the case and possibly get the data off of the drive. There are companies that you can have do this but they are expensive. Do a search for data recovery and you'll see how many there are.

I had a hard drive crash a while back so I had to install a new one. I don't remember what to do next to retrieve the info from my iomega usb hard drive. I am sure the hard drive is a 500 GB desk top


You need to re-install the Iomega backup software on the new hard drive, so that it will see the backup files on the external hard drive.

I have plugged in my iomega portable hard drive and want to backup my computer. How do I do that?


If the drive connecting through a USB port you will see a new drive letter under my computer. You should use the backup utility of your computer to backup your PC onto the new drive or selectively copy documents from your computer's hard drive onto the portable hard drive.

I am trying to install an Iomega USB 2.0 portable hard drive. The drive icon does not appear on MY COMPUTER. It shows "Solutions" (name of the disc) drive D. Think everything is in place. ...


Go to start, run, msconfig and then select normal start up so eveyrthing runs when your computer turns on. With windows xp you should not at all have to install usb 2.0 drivers.

Freecom 250 Gb Hard Drive


Hi des,
you need to install windows XP, on a different hard-drive.
even if it,s only 10 gig plus.
You can then access the drive.
Your problem is here, is that you,ve upgraded from XP to Vista, theres a possibility, that you may have lost or even formatted your freecom hard-drive.
No-Support-Device detected, is saying that your USB devices are not functioning correctly.
Check in the bios that the USB devices are enabled, to operate your hard-drive. ( this is assuming it,s a USB drive )

Hope this helps you out.

Mike @ compurepair.
