Hi David, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.
I am very sorry about your issues. Have you tried to unplug the USB cable from the drive and then gently plug it back in and test if your drive is detected by your computer this time?
Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.
When the drive is plugged into the USB port of the computer, is there any led on the drive that indicates it is connected?
What do you mean by negative? Are you saying that when the drive is connected, the led that is usually lit to indicate it is plugged in, is NOT lit this time?
Also, do you have a lot of data stored on that problem iOmega drive?
Thank you for writing back with that information. Since you are using Windows 7, please open "Computer" to show the drives in your system. Is the iomega drive listed there?
Also, can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check and fix the issues while you watch?
