Customer Question

Hello- I have an Iomega hard drive # 99A85209BF. Another # on it is 31763600, LDHD-UP. I use it with my Macbook Air OS X 10.11.6. The hard drive no longer wants to work and I would like to fix it. This could easily be operator error! Thanks, ***** ********, Grand Marais, MN

Hi there Annie and welcome

What exactly happens when you try to access the hard drive? Are you seeing it still?

Do you get a specific error?

Please let me know

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you. Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse. I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps. Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong. If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me. Thanks, Richard

Hmm. okay. Please cancel this order and also cancel my credit card number and info. I need to contact Iomega first as I think it is their duty to help me first. If that is not the case, I will contact you again. Thank you. ***** *******
