MacBook :: Drivers For Old IOmega External HDD

Aug 23, 2014

I can not get my Macbook Pro running OS X 10.9.4 to recognize a 5 year old external hard drive from iomega. The product code is 31759000 RDHD-U. The hard drive powers up, all cables have been checked to work on other devices, and yet nothing happens when connected.

Hardware :: Finding ESATA Drivers (Iomega)?

Nov 25, 2010

So I got this eSATA card for my MacPro a while back and was able to install quite easily. I've done a fresh install on a new harddrive of my OS and no longer have the driver disc for the eSATA card. Does anyone know a method for ripping the drivers from my old hard drive? Or does anyone know where I can actually get the driver? I can't seem to locate it anywhere on Iomega's site.

Hardware :: Using IOmega External HDD?

Jul 6, 2009

Periodically, my iOmega external HDD unmounts (dismounts?). Only after disconnecting and reconnecting both the power and the USB (connected to a powered hub) does the HDD mount again. This has happened about 3 times in the last 3 months. The HDD is about 2 years old and I have had no other problem with it. It works fine other than the unmounting.

OS X :: Iomega External Harddrive Won't Read On PC But On Mac?

Mar 20, 2010

I bought an Iomega Prestige 1TB external harddrive a couple months ago with it running off my Macbook Pro.

I just flew down home for spring break, leaving my Macbook Pro charger at school. However, I do have the harddrive with all my backed up files. The problem is, my PC laptop (Dell, Windows XP) does not recognizes it. When I plug in the harddrive and turn it on, the computer recognizes that there is something plugged in (it gives me the option to safely remove hardware), but there is no sign of the drive anywhere.

Is there anyway my PC can read/recognize it?

Hardware :: Iomega Desktop/External HD Not Recognized?

Dec 15, 2007

This may a well beaten subject, but I must get an answer.

I have used an Iomega External HD (black series/800/firewire) for about 6 months, using it to load up with important files.

Now all of a sudden, it does get recognized by either my Mac G5 (OS X 10.4) or my MacBook Pro. In fact, I get the Disk Insertion (initialize/ignore/eject) window.

Why initialize, that will only wipe out all of my files on the HD.

OS X :: Won't Work With External Iomega HD And Disk Utility Error

Dec 3, 2009

I bought a 1TB Iomega Prestige drive, it worked great for a few months. Started making loud clicking sounds. Iomega sent me a replacement drive (refurbished).

I am using it as my time machine backup in Leopard, so it was really just a matter of plugging it in, formating it with the OSX file system and setting it up for time machine.

When attempting to format from Disk Utility, I get an error (see screenshot).

(Additional info: I can access it and format it without any problems from Windows 7 based PC).

MacBook Pro :: Windows 7 Not Loading NVIDIA Drivers / Requires Bootcamp To Load Drivers?

Oct 19, 2009

I recently installed the 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate operating system onto my MacBook Pro 13 inch. I have the most basic Macbook Pro 13 inch with nothing fancy added. Whenever I load up the Windows 7 OS on my Macbook, it never utilizes or even realizes that I have the NVIDIA graphics card in my laptop. It instead believes I have some integrated graphics card that cannot even run the most basic of PC games. I know my laptop can run these games because on OSX it runs multiple games with higher requirements than these games I am trying to run on Windows.

Basic question: How do I get bootcamp or whatever else to make Windows 7 realize I have a NVIDIA card and drivers. Sorry if I am coming off as stupid or confusing.

MacBook :: Unable To Install Windows 7 Drivers / Old Drivers Are Installing

Oct 11, 2009

I have a Macbook plastic, 2.4 GHz intel core 2 Duo with 2 GB of ram.My Mac is currently running on OS X, i used to have a 40 gig partition Windows XP, a couple of friends of mine where talking about how much they liked Windows 7 and finally i had had enough blue screens to say, sure ill switch, why not?... assuming it would not take longer then lets say a day at most, i set off on my quest.

FWI, im running an older model Macbook that was bought refurbished (not sure if that has anything to do with my problem). anyway i removed my previous partition, then using Boot Camp Assistant i repartitioned a 40 gig section for Windows 7. Then ran the installer. I have a copy of Windows 7 ultimate 86x. The Windows boot screen turned up, i had to reformat the partition so that i could install, no problems there. after all said and done the installation worked perfectly, up to a point... First problem that appeared was the lack of sound. i fixed that by downloading Realtek's High Def sound drivers.

Then it was the rest of the drivers for the macbook. heres where i run into my problem, i have the Mac OSX install discs 1 and 2. inserting the first disc the option of the auto run of the setup popped up i clicked run. and instead of the same old install drivers option all i have is the option to install the software that lets macbook airs share cd/dvd drives... needless to say i got frustrated and to put it lightly pissed off...

unsure of wtf was going on i looked it up online and really couldnt find anyone with the same problem, i found a web page saying that i should have the windows auto update itself and that should fix the problem. it did not. i dont know what the hell is going on. and im about this close to reinstalling windows xp and telling windows 7 to go **** itself...

OS X :: Looking For Drivers For USB External Drive

Jun 26, 2007

I've just bought a device that allows you to connect external drives to a USB port, but I can't access the driver as it comes in a Classic installer, which obviously won't run in OS X. If anyone has the following files.

/System Folder/Extensions/Gene USB ATA Driver
/System Folder/Extensions/Gene USB ATA Shim

Would you be able to email them to me please? Or alternatively if I sent you the installer could you extract it in the Classic environment and send me the contents? All this is assuming these extensions will work in OS X.

Windows On Mac :: Unable To Install NVidia Drivers / Drivers Not Compatible With Hardware

May 27, 2009

So i am trying to change my apple boot camp drivers to nvidia's, but i think i must have downloaded the wrong ones, or done something wrong. I tried to install Geforce/Ion driver release 192.62, (from nvidia's site, i selected gefore 8 series) and when i ran the setup it said: 'nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your hardware' . My questions are:

� Which drivers should i download? a link would be great.
� Are there any pre-requisites i must do, such as install version 170 first?

I am using an iMac 24" with 4gb ram, 500gb 5400 rpm HDD, and 8800 GS 512mb.

The reason I am trying this, is because when i play some online games, i often get bad lag spikes, but that chat is still running. Someone recommended me to 'update my drivers'.

Hardware :: Iomega HD Permissions?

Aug 24, 2009

I have an Iomega HD (IHD) and two Macs. I can write things on my IHD at the office, but when I get at home it says I don�t have the permissions to write.

Then I went to the"Obter informa��es menu" ( I guess in english is Ask informations, or Obtain informations Menu ) and I change there the permissions to write and it still doesn�t work.

What kind of partitions must I have to work at least on all Maccintosh?

Hardware ::finding Iomega Minimax?

Dec 21, 2008

I'm looking to buy an Iomega Minimax to compliment my MacMini but a key question someone who owns it already might be able to answer;

I've had issues in the past with external HDs not powering down after a short while of not being accessed, I leave my mini on the whole time and it's in my bedroom so it's important it spins down after a period of non use but can auto spin back up when required. Does it do this successfully?

OS X :: Using Iomega Hard Disc Drives?

Jun 11, 2009

I'm looking to get a new 1.5TB or 2TB hard drive with FW connectivity for mostly backup purposes.

It seems that Iomega makes some of the most price efficient drives of high capacity.

Does anyone have anything to say about the brand? Any horror stories or positive reviews?

Being that it's a backup drive for a lot of digital video... it needs to be reliable.

OS X :: New Iomega Hard Drive Won't Appear On Desktop?

Jun 14, 2009

I bought a Minimax iomega 500 Gb hard drive last week, and it has worked perfectly until now - (after spending days removing data from my 2 Macs on to it).

I ejected it via the little icon in the finder window, like usual, switched off the power button at the back. When I went to use it again, I plugged the Firewire cable into my computer, switched the power button on at the back, and nothing! No icon on the desktop, I tried the other computer, different Firewire cables, but nothing. I need to get a USB to see if that works.

Hardware :: Using Iomega Rev And Snow Leopard?

Nov 12, 2009

I just spent $$$ for a 120 Gb Rev drive and disks. I connected the Rev drive to my snow leopard mac and it doesn't work. It will read the disks but not write. So what's up?

Iomega has a message on their website that the Rev is not compatible with Snow Leopard "...due to a UDF driver conflict that will not be fixed."

Does the mean that Iomega won't update a simple driver to Snow Leopard? Is Iomega giving up on the Mac? Can someone explain this to me?

Hardware :: 500 Gb USB Iomega Drive No Longer Mounts?

May 26, 2009

setup : 2x iMac 24" 10.5.6..wired to airport Xtreme, Iomega 500 GB HD connected via USB

this drive worked fine and has all the pics on it and was used to backup both iMac's via Time Machine.
Today the Airport Xtreme (AX) gives us a flashing orange light and informs us that the 500 GB Iomega disk needs to be connected to the mac and needs to be repaired.

so...we did, with a "disk appears to be OK " message after 'repair' mounting from within Disk Utility gives us : "The disk �500HD� could not be mounted. Try running First Aid on the disk and then retry mounting."
(we did just that...!)

We also tried "Drive Genius" with the same results.

whether we hook the drive to the AX or directly to the mounting.

The drive (and it's partition) does appear perfectly in both 'Disk Utility' and in 'Drive Genius'

(The iMac does mount other USB items like mem-sticks, camera's just fine.)

anybody any ideas how to get this working again ?
