SOURCE: Hi Would you tell me how long 1tb IOMEGA hard drive formating will take?

It depends on how it is connected to the computer. A drive connected through an eSATA port should be able to format 1TB in just 1 - 2 hours depending on how loaded the system is (background processes/services, other use while it is formatting, etc). If it is connected via USB2.0, you are looking at approximately 6.3 times longer or up to 13 hours.

If you could reach and constantly maintain the theoretical maximum throughput on eSATA, it would only take about 45 minutes.

Hi LeoChen,

Most of the Iomega drive adapters do but not all. There's no information on Iomega's site regarding the voltage but if you look carefully at the fine print on the adapter, it should have a Input Voltage Range listing, normally 100-240, if this is the case then as long as you have a cord that fits from the wall to the adapter the adapter will adjust itself to voltage within this range. If you have one of the few that staes only 90-120V for range then the answer is no, but Targus sells a universal adapter for laptops that comes with an appropriate tip for your drive that does support 90-240V.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

SOURCE: cannot copy files to Iomega 500 GB external hard drive.

It depends on how you formatted the the drive.
If it was formatted FAT it will work on both Mac and PC.
If you formatted to HFS+ (the native mac format) then it will only work on a mac.

If it's clicking then more than likely the heads have crashed. It's very expensive to fix...usually 1,500-2,700.

Hopefully you didn't have anything SUPER important on the drive. I usually recover them for 700 but I'm independent so that's why my prices are much lower.

You should still be able to return the drive to Iomega for a replacement (RMA).

Iomega 1 T external that was used on Dish to save


Sure, that could work? If it saves in an industry standard format (avi, mpg, wmv), then yes. If not, then look for a converter (may need PC)

Hello, I plugged in my iomega 1tb desktop hard drive storage device and the drive does not appear in my drive or computer. I do have the new hardware 'sound' that comes up but I dont have the drive show up...


Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

thank you.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
