SOURCE: Cannot configue the device

The disk should install automatically. You can check if your USB ports are configured to USB 2.0 and not the older USB 1.1 (in the Bios).

Also check the Device Manager to see if anything is listed as unknown or other, which means you might need to update/install a driver.

Other external HDD troubleshooting tips might help.

SOURCE: Device unable to start

Hi,
Make sure the product is not under warranty (12 months after purchase) open it up and identify the hard drive, it might be Segate, contact them on their web site to see if the drive is still under warranty, it might be, check the link below. You can replace the drive with another one (same brand) if it is out of warranty.

Once it is connected, it should show up in your My Computer folder as a removeable drive. You use it like your hard drive on your computer to move and copy files to. Just open your hard drive on your computer, select the files you want to copy or move to the new drive and right click on the selection, click on the send to option on the menu and it will be one of the options to send the files to.

    one thing that is possible, is that you may have another drive letter assigned to the letter the iomega is trying to use.

    Try this....Click on your start orb and type in Disk Management.
    open the Disk Management utility in Windows and see if you see the iomega drive listed in the list of disks on the bottom.

    If you DO see the iomega drive there, make sure it shows a healthy partition (It should say something like Fat 32 or NTFS as the file system type...if it shows "RAW" or "damaged" or something like that, you may need to erase and format the drive)

    Then, try right clicking on the drive and choosing "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
    from there try a new drive letter in case you already have another peripheral using the drive letter the iomega drive is trying to grab. This could cause Windows to recognize the drive but still be unable to see it in your explorer.

    Good Luck

    How do i copy files into Iomega eGo 1TB? It is brand new but show no storage space left.


    Well this method will destroy everything on it so make sure there's nothing on it. Go into computer, right click on your drive, click format, the options should be default unless you know what you're doing, this should restore all the space to usable space. If this doesn't work go to properties then tools and disc error checking, there might be a bad sector.

    Iomega eGo 1TB USB 3.0 Portable portable harddisk 500GB. while connected to PC show an error on desktop "insufficient power on USB hub port" . pls suggest


    Few different things are possibilities.
    1. Are you connecting the device via USB 3.0 to the USB 3.0 adapter on the computer? 2. Try switching out your USB 3.0 cable for a different one. 3. If you are using the USB 2.0 instead. Make sure you are using the USB Y cable for the device and not just a standard USB 2.0 straight cable. Using the USB Y cable. Plug the cable into the device first, then make sure to plug both USB's into the computer starting with the short side USB then the longer side USB second. Also try using the USB's on the back side of the computer as they will supply more power than the USB's on the front of the computer.

    Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

    just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

    thank you.
