Question about Iomega 2TB Prestige External Hard Drive
There is no internal power supply. The unit gets it's power from the computer. A USB port has 5 Volts DC.
Inside that external enclosure of the IOmega external harddrive is just an ordinary harddrive as used in a desktop computer. A SATA harddrive.
The harddrive plugs into a small circuit board with an interface on it, or there are cables, (wires), which come from the circuit board, and plug into the back of the harddrive.
It is this small circuit board that is usually the problem.
The solution to this problem is to simply just buy an economical external enclosure, and install the harddrive out of the IOmega into it.
Just one example from a quick search for an economical SATA 3.5 external enclosure,
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. 2 and 1/2 inches.
A desktop harddrive is 3.5),
