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.

Cannot connect astone external hard drive to my computer


There could be many problems to this.

First of all try to connect the hardrive on a different computer or even a different USB port on the same computer

If that doesn't work then try restarting the computer with the harddrive plugged in.

If that doesn't work then you may need to buy a new harddrive.

I just bought an iOmega eGo 160GB external hard drive and have no idea how to use it once I've installed the program. Help!!


From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)

I have a iomega mdhd500-ue for about past ten months.when switched on it useually whirls into action but now it is just making a repeated clicking sound and it is not connecting to my laptop


I have a MDHD500-N Iomega external HD that had the same issue - clicking at startup and flashing power LED. I noticed that the supplied power transformer for the unit is 12V 1A and the sticker on the HD enclosure says 12V 2A. I hooked up the HD enclosure directly to a power supply - at boot up, the HD draws 2.5A, more than double what the provided power transformer can output. HD enclosure runs beautifully on an external PS.

My seagate Free Agent external harddrive fell on ground yesterday. I unplugged it from the computer and try to use it again but it doesn't even show on the computer. The PC doesn't show the name of the...


Hard drives can make a little noise when you shake it gently, but to hear clicking sounds when it's running is not a good sign. I dropped a brand new 120 gig hdd for a customers lap top right outside the store. It made noise when I shook it "carefully" but nothing installed. NOTHING..... Tested it. It was dead. Since you say it's an external see if all inside is connected tightly.
