Simple solutions are usually clever this is not. I just have to disconnect the power and when I reconnect the drive is recognised as fully functional. Eventually Maxtor will fix the driver. So far Vista has been fine and works very well with 4GB of memory and a fast processor.

Still don't know what you can do to rescue your lost drive files right now?
OK! I have ever followed a video tutorial to resolve solve such hard drive data loss problems from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1F72QPGHm8
You can also check it and follow its steps to see whether all your files could be restored successfully.
In the future, to avoid such data loss troubles, always regularly save your drive stuffs on several places, not only on one hard drive.
Install the drive on a working computer and access through disc management. that will allow you to initialize the drive and format it ntfs. Goto my computer right click select manage select drive management. This works on XP if you have other OS than search for disc management for your OS.
1. The TV and drive may not be compatible with each other.
2. The formatting of the drive could be the problem. The USB memory stick would be formatted as FAT32, but the Iomega drive would have been formatted as NTFS. Maybe the TV can only read drives formatted as FAT32 and not NTFS.
You have to change your hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS,because FAT32 limits the size of transferred files to 4GB. To do so ,go to Start,right click on Computer and select Manage. Under Storage click on Management.Find your hard drive in the list and right click on it and select Format. Under File System change the Answer to NTFS and leave the Allocation Unit to default. Click on Perform Quick Format if you want.click OK and confirm your OK with losing all data on the drive,and your done. Regards Bill
Check the file system of your hard drive. If your PC is recognizing it, check if its a FAT or NTFS. If it is NTFS then you have to reformat it using your Mac and choose FAT. Mac OS recognizes NTFS as a read only drive. If you plan using it with your PC and MAC you should format it using your mac and choose MS-DOS in disc Utility. You cannot format the drive using your PC Computer with a FAT file system because of the capacity. Only Mac can format it with a FAT file system.
It seems vista is the problem. On older operating systems the disk's work fine. My dis was formatted with vista and as a result showed exactly the same message when plugging it into a xp system. Back on the vista it works fine. The ntfs is native to win NT/xp there might have been changes in vista. Also do not use the firewire cabling, i had numerious problems until i reverted back to the usb.
