welcome, is your iomega connected to your network router, or directly to your computer mac?
is it ethernet or usb connected?
network router via ethernet. The power light just went solid and the drive light is now blinking blue and orange
try to access the drive via your mac
attempt to connect via enternet failed. Cabeling problem with USB
do you have an alternate usb cable you can connect in between the drive and mac?
take a look around to see if you can locate one
Have been looking. Points to note, once connected to the ethernet, the blue/orange light goes blank, the power light has remained solid.
have you successfully replaced the usb cable? the lights indicate a communication error via ethernet so a different cable would be a great choice right now
I am using a USB connection right now. At first the blue/orange remained blank. I restarted the drive, power shows solid white, Blue/Orange blink between each other, 0.5 sec each.
The drive cannot be viewed by any utility
I must step away, will continue after 13:00 EST
while away, consider picking up a new usb cable for this, ALSO, try to switch the usb cable over to a different USB port on your computer
I will be here waiting to see if the above information helped you or not, if not, then let me know!>
no help so far. Can you confirm in your opinion if the data may be accessed in another way?
No joy on PC, Mac, 2 different usb cables, no joy.
the drive has been in near continous operation for 2 yrs, the images were up this morning but the "wheel" got rolling if you tried to access stuff. again, blue and orange light flashing, alive or dead?
Yes we have tried different computers, including PC's, no joy.
going home. tomorrow
