Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think it would be well to install the Storcenter drivers first, on the laptop, and then after connecting the Iomega drive you ought to be able to either see files, or at least to get a 'login' prompt for the security necessary to acessing the files.
What Windows version is on your laptop please? With that information, I could advise you further in more specific detail. The Iomega drivers and/or software are, hopefully (even if it is an older drive) still available for free from the Iomega site, and I could direct you to the correct site/page with that information. So Reply and let me know, please. Thanks.
