Question about Iomega (33600) 160 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Purchased a 1 Tb Iomega disk drive. It won't accept new files and beeps every few seconds. The only thing that stops the beeping is to turn it off or unplug it. Do I have to bring it in? I've had it for less than a month.

Iomega eGo was working before and not now. All it does is beep. Read on other forums that it could be a power issue. Windows sees the drive in device manager but drive doesn't spin up. Just beeps for...


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active until turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated,
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable just replace the cable of the hard disk everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

My hard drive is beeping and "clicking" non stop


the drive is defective. that clicking noise is the read head not aligned properly. take the hard drive out of the enclosure and place it in the freezer for about an hour and see if it works long enough to the data off it, but ultimately you will need a new hard drive.

Hello, my Iomega 34579 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive was working ok in my MAC but I've plugged it into my pc and it does'nt work, what do I have to do?


You probably formatted it as HFS+ to work with your Mac. Windows cannot do anything with that format. If you are wanting to use the drive with both Windows and Mac, you are going to have to format the drive as FAT32. There is a 4GB per file size limitation with FAT32. Otherwise there isn't anything that you can do.
To format your drive as FAT32 with a Mac OS X, Version 10.4 and above:
1. Make sure you have copied any needed files to another location. 2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility
In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega drive or disk.
Make sure you click on the high level orange drive icon, not the second level volume icon.
3. Select the Partition tab. 4. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition. 5. Click on the Options button. 6. Select Master Boot Record as the partition type. 7. Click the Format drop-down menu and select MS-DOS File System as the format type. 8. Click OK. 9. Click the Partition button

Disk spins ...then I hear a beep...icon does not show up


The hard disk or the adapter case maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove it form the Iomega case and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK, then the Iomega adapter case is faulty.
Then you need a new hard drive adapter case, it doesn't need to be an Iomega brand.

Can't format new Iomega 1 TB drive on a mac


the mbr has been lost and may be the boot files too. this happens if sector zero is bad or weak
use a windows pc .and remove the raw drive from the casing of this external drive. now hook it into the windows pc and see for the drive detection in bios. if detected the drive is ok and needs a good low level formatting. with a llf tool you can get one free from hddguru.com

My Iomega 1 TB external is making beeping noises and the computer won't read it when plugged in. Any help? I'm so desperate, it has all my pictures and business files on it. I need it ASAP! Any help...


I've had the same problem happen to me three times with drives, so I know the situation very well.

I'm sorry to tell you, but your drive is experiencing a motor failure. Meaning that the drive is dying. You do need to stop using the drive and find a data recovery service. If the drive is under warranty with Iomega, you can get a replacement drive. Unfortunately, no manufacturer will pay for the data recovery service, neither will they guarantee the data. Iomega does have a data recovery service that is good, but can be costly depending on the trouble on the drive and the amount of data that has to be recovered.

Do stop using the drive so that the discs in the drive can stay strong making data recovery easier (and not so costly). If you use your drive primarily for your business, you may want to invest in an online backup system that syncs with the data from your drives. I'm sorry for your troubles.
