Hi all - I recently bought an iomega external hard drive. The first time I connected it it worked fine and I transferred a number of files over to it. The second time I tried to connect it it was not recognised by the laptop (under My Computer or Disk Management). I am running on Vista with a HP laptop. Any ideas?
Yes it has an external adaptor. Only one connection to the laptop. Don't think the external drive has packed in. It's an MX Screenplay and still connects to the TV via a HDMI cable no probs. I'll give it a go on another laptop though to see if the USB slot works.
Tried it on another laptop and it worked. Saw other suggestions on this site to uninstall USB controllers so tried that and rebooted a couple of times and now it's working again. Don't know what was wrong but back in business now. Thanks anyway guys.
