The error of Iomega external hard drive can be solved by creating the partition on your hard disk. This has solved the problem for most of the people; you can try doing it. Create at least three partitions and reactivate hard disk and reboot your system, it will work. You check your disk management option. You can go for formatting of the disk, which can be the last option in case, above alternative doesn’t work.

If you have an Iomega external hard drive and it does not appear when you connect it to your computer, check that the USB cable you are using is connected properly and it is not damaged. Check that both ends of the cable are securely connected to their respective ports. If this doesn’t work, try using a different cable if you have a spare.

If the software of the external hard drive is not yet installed, you should install it first for the drive to function properly. See if this works. If the external hard drive cannot be detected on one USB port, try transferring the cable to another USB port then try again. Use all available USB ports as necessary for the drive to be detected.

On the other hand, if the drive can be detected and it appears on your computer but you just can’t access its contents, there is probably something wrong with the file system. Download PC Tools Performance Toolkit and install it.

Once installed, start PC Tools then go to “Recovery” tab and click “Repair Drives”. On the next screen, select your external hard drive from the list then select “Surface Scan” in the options. When you are ready, click “Start” to begin checking your drive. If the drive can’t be fixed, try formatting it.
