New 250 M iomega drive installed by dealer. Does not recognize an inserted disk (also provided by dealer). The on screen reaction seems to be that there's no disk in the drive when, obviously, there is.

I believe you can use a PATA drive to USB adaptor. Hopefully you have the software for the Iomega drive, or perhaps that is available from Iomega. I've never tried it with an Iomega but have with numerous other drives. I hope this helps.

Have only just decided to install my new Iomega 500 GB usb 2.0 hard drive and I have mislaid my quick install guide. I have an Apple imac can you help please


Just connect the AC power to the IOMEGA, and the USB cable between the IOMEGA and a USB port on your computer. It is a "plug-and-play" device, and so Apple OS X should automatically recognize it.

    Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


    This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.

    Computer doesn' t recognize iomega eGo portable


    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.

    Iomega 250 GB external stopped working


    This is really not a solution, but you should all try to connect your iomega to a imac, and use the Disk Utility (in Utilities folder), if you have any luck the hard drive will be recognized and you will be able to format it

    Cant figure out how to use zip drive when i have added a pass to my zip dr 250


    1. Insert a blank disk into the zip drive
    2. Give this disk a password (it can be any password, as long as you
    remember it)
    3. Using the Ioega toolset, set the zip drive's sleep time to a large
    value (such as 1 minute)
    4. Wait a while until the drive "spins down". You will hear the drive
    stop spinning.
    5. Take a pin or a straighten paper clip and stick it into a hole in
    the back of the Zip drive. This will manually eject the blank disk.
    6. Insert the disk you want to access (the one you don't know the
    password to)
    7. now use the IoMega toolset to remove the password. When prompted
    for the password use the password from step (2).
    This is just a word of warning in case you store any important information like I used to on zip disks. Perhaps move to a more secure medium.

    Not able to access the Jaz Disk


    Iomega has quite a bit of customer help info: https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com Click: Other Products Then Click: JAZ 2GB Then Click: Windows XP Then Click: More Answers... Then type in "search text" area: "insert a disk" Then Click: Search Then Click: "Please insert a disk into drive X" error message when inserting or trying to read an Iomega disk If that website's search engine doesn't help, you can also log into: http://www.iomegasupportforums.com and ask the tech support people there.
