    got this iomega 1tb network share drive s/n T5BL it was working fine with my wired network plugged in my router
    showing on my PC
    had some files on it as well
    now since yesterday its not showing up on my system win vista pc
    the white light is solid
    when i try to reboot it
    the white light turns on and then the blue light starts to flicker and then just before the blue light is solid the blue light briefly goes into red and blue and then turns off
    the white light is solid ,i can hear the hdd spin after it boots
    when i turn on the home network media storage software
    it shows searching and then the i omega 0e3756 and then again goes to searching
    i cant turn off the device from the back button and pressing the factory reset button for more than 5 sec doesn't do anything either
    i need some help
    thanks

    Probably linux EXT3 file system but couldn't say for sure, try connecting it to a PC running Ubuntu linux OS.

    Windows does not support EXT, there might be some packages out there to enable reading support but I'd consider Ubuntu the safer option.

    Don't use Windows the ext3 drivers are not up to par, boot into a linux OS.

    Use Linux Live to install Ubuntu to a USB flash drive and boot the OS from there. That should give you access to the HDD and copy it's contents to another drive.

    The other option is if you have a new HDD put that into the Iomega and set it up, then connect the old drive via USB to the Iomega and if the NAS has a built in file manager copy the contents to the internal HDD.

    ive got my new nas setup and running
    i don't think that the usb at the back will read the other old nas drive via that usb
    can i try it in the new nas drive
    or do you want me to set the old nas enclosure with a new hdd and then plug the old nas hdd to it via the usb at the back
    any comments
    thanks
