Iomega portable hard drives connect to your computer through a USB port.
When you connect the Iomega hard drive to your computer, it should pop up as an icon in your
My Computer folder.
If you can't find the icon in your My Computer folder then you probably need to update the driver for the device.
Updating this driver is not very hard and can be done automatically from the Windows Device Manager.

Plug your Iomega hard drive into one of your computer's USB port.
Click the "Start" button and go to the "Run" field.
Type "Devmgmt.msc" into the Run box and press the "Enter" key.
Go down to the bottom of the device manager to the "Universal Serial Bus Controller."
Click on the little + (plus) sign to expand it.
Look for an entry with a yellow exclamation point and click on it.
Click the "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" button and then click the "Next" button.
Click the "Finish" button when the installation has finished.
Go to the "My Computer" folder from your "Start" menu and locate the Iomega hard drive icon.
Double click the icon to gain access to the external hard drive.

How to fransfer data from laptop to pendrive


First turn on your computer.

Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.

You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.

Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.

Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.

You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.

Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.

To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.

Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.


Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.

Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.

Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

I hope that was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Restart your computer > My computer > connect the USB Drive > right click on the USB drive's icon that will appear > right click on the USB Drive icon > explore > create a new folder called Transferred Photos > double click to open the new folder >minimize the My Computer window > open the folder where your photos are stored > edit > select all > right click on the highlighted photos > copy > maximize My Computer > right click and paste photos into Tranfrerred Photos folder > close all windows > left click on USB icon bottom right near the clock > left click Safely Remove (remember to always do this before disconnecting the USB Drive in future > remove USB Drive.

If there is any difficulty, check size of photos folder and check if there is enough free space on the USB drive for all the photos.

In my computer, also right click and scan (Quick Scan) USB Drive to check for any data corruption or infection on it.

Hope this helps.

You may have formatted the drive in NTFS instead of FAT32. if its an old version of Xp or Win98 then it may need to be formatted in FAT32. If its windows 7 then it must be in NTFS. in My computer right click on the icon for the drive and left click on format. You should see the options for with type of file system you want.

    HOW CAN I PUT A FOLDER AND THEN A FILE ON TO A SANDISK CRUZER USB 2.0 4GB FLASH DRIVE ?


    When plugged on a computer running Windows, the SanDisk Cruzer appears as 2 icons: a CD-ROM and a regular hard drive. The drive letters for the two are consecutive (ex: E:CD_ROM, F:SanDisk.
    Any file or folders that you have to store on the SanDisk drive must be stored on the second device.

    If the folder already exists on your computer, point to it with mouse cursor and right click. In the menu options look for the one that says copy and select it.
    Open the Windows Explorer, locate theCuruzer icon that represents the hard drive part, click on it to open it. Point somewhere where there are no icons and right click the mouse cursor. Select the submenu Paste.

    To copy and paste you can also use the keyboard shortcuts CTRL-C and CTRL-V

    You can also open 2 explorer windows side by side, one showing the folder you want to copy and another the contents of the SanDisk drive. You can drag the folder to copy from the computer hard-drive and drop

    How to get photos off of sandisk from phone to computer . I put the memory card reader in usb port, but don't know what to do from there


    Hi


    When you put in your card in the usb port, an icon will appear under My Computer(stating external disk, etc). Double click on that icon and you'll be able to see many folders, select the folder saying images/pictures,etc. Select the folders and pictures you want to copy and then paste it into your desired location on your computer.

    Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.


    Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.
