    Can't install my iomega ext hdd.


    I just bought a brand new hp pavillion and it won't recognise my iomega ext usb hard drive. All the driver sites just want my money and some are telling me I need to update 11 drivers on my 2013 pc. Please help

    Welcome to EightForums,

    Take look on the HP web site for up to date drivers for your hp pavillion.

    Same problem, doesn't see the iomega ext. HD. Everything else pops in, WD elements, HD straight from sata to USB, USB sticks, etc. The iomega is the system iso vault for all the PC's in the house.

    Not a new PC but running fine on 8, and not a HP.

    Have you gone to the Iomega support site for drivers and possible installation software.
