    Hard disk, or cd drive? Hard discs are inside the computer and can't be "opened", especially by software like Windows. Are you trying to eject the CD Drive from within windows? Please be more specific.

It's just a matter of time before the hard disk stops working completely. You can try everything from the freezer to remove the device, because the drives read better in colder temperatures. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Place the hard disk in a zip lock bag and freeze the zipper to close. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. The bag containing the hard drive in the freezer. Cool in the freezer for several hours. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Remove the bag from the freezer. Remove the hard disk of the bag. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4.

Purchased new Iomega 1 TB Home Media network HD, and both my MBP and PC windows 7 won't recognize the device.


you have to initilize the disk in disk management utility, heres how (windows XP)

  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Performance and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Just double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, click on the Administrative Tools link located under the or pick a Control Panel icon heading near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on Computer Management.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left.
    In a few seconds, Disk Management will load on the right side of the Computer Management window.
    Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the + icon to the left of Storage to expand the option.
  6. You can now format a hard drive, change a drive's letter, partition a hard drive, or do whatever else you need to do in Windows XP's Disk Management tool.

Need help formatting new hard drive , Thx in advance Setup steps say "Double-click the Lacie icon in My Computer to get the Lacie Setup Assistant" and that didn't happen .


The LaCie hard drive should have come with a CD. If you pop that CD in, then their directions make more sense:
1: Put in the LaCie CD
2: Double-Click on "My Computer" to open windows explorer
3: right below the "Local Disk (C:)" you should have a LaCie icon for your CD-rom -- double-click this icon for their setup assistant.

If you don't have a CD-ROM, you can still use the drive but it's more involved.


1: right-click on "My Computer" and select the option "Manage"
2: On the left panel of Computer Management, you should have an option "Disk Management" under the heading "Storage" - click on Disk Management
note: The Disk Manager shows your current disks in the top right panel, and ALL disks in the bottom right panel. You might need to resize the window to see them all.
3: In the bottom right panel, find the grey-ed out box that corresponds to your new disk, and right-click on it. One of the options will be to format it.
4: After formatting, if it doesn't automatically come up with a drive letter, you can once again right-click on it in the bottom right panel of the Disk Manager and assign it a drive letter.

Once it has a drive letter, Windows should see the drive and you should be good to go!
