Hi

I've got an old Iomega hard drive which is not being recognised by my computer. I have run various scans with the device attached to USB port but all I get is that computer cannot find any drivers for it. I've been on Iomega's site, downloaded the driver manager but they want my hard earned cash to use this manager and i don't know if it will work anyway. Am I missing something obvious to solve my problem. As you can probably tell from the wording of my question I'm not really technically minded so any help gratefully received. I'm using Windows 7 if that helps.

Many Thanks
Jim

Post the exact model number of the drive and we'll see whether there is a driver. And does it get recognized in the BIOS ??

Where are you looking for drivers that they want to charge for them?

Try putting it in an enclosure then plug it on to other PC (where it will function like an external HDD). If it worked, there's something wrong either with the slot, cable, or your machine. AHAHA.

Just a suggestion. :)
