Question about Iomega MiniMax (33464) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Iomega harddrive minimax 250 GB is dead

My iomega minimax harddrive GB -- bought in february 2006 at fnac in Marbella -- doesn't work anymore. Absolutely nothing happens when I connect it to the electricity. More important than the hardware is the data on the disk. How and where can I have it repaired? I don't get any help here in Spain and iomega/Europe doesn't answer my e-mails. What can I do to have at least the data saved? Yours Peter J. Beck

    Hello colleagues,

    I wrote an e-mail to all the 12 other fnac shops here in Spain and explained them how it destroys their image if clients are treated that way in Marbella.

    The same day I got a telephone call to bring my harddrive to be repaired quickly.

    I recommend all people who want to buy electronical stuff in Spain to do that at Corte Ingl?s. They take back every article within a month if you are not satisfied.

    Thank you for your attention
    Peter J. Beck

Your Imega external enclosure has malfunctioned. If you can, you need to take the enclosure apart and take the harddrive out and test it with a computer desktop that has sata connectable, if your computer is able to read, then your iomega harddrive enclose suffer malfuction, if the computer isn't able to read the harddrive through the sata connection, then your harddrive is bad.

I have an iomega minimax device that I cannot seem to connect to my imac. when i plug the device in nothing happens on the desktop.

try getting a new power cord from iomega, If that doesn;t work, the drive is probably corrupted. They are under a year warranty. You ship yours to them and they will send you a new one. Try the free chat on Iomega

Take the computer to a qualified Apple technician -- the hard-drive could have "died". Is the drive still under warranty? If so, you can get a replacement for free, but you will need to contact a "Data Recovery Service" if you want to "recover" any of your files.

Yes. The MiniMax is designed to match the MacMini from Apple and comes formatted out of the box to work with a Mac. (One of the few drives that is!)
I think Iomega supply various Windows drivers on the CD

How to lock an Iomega MiniMax 250 GB Hard Drive?

They make chains with locks that screw to a secure surface. (floor,wall, desk, specially made etc.) You then hook you hard drive to the secure lock and someone can't easily pilfer it. Hope that helps, Tim
