Windows 7: iomega 1tb external hd wont install

can you try this rod, take out all the externals you have plugged in and try with the iomega on its own. it could be that the drive letter originally assigned to the iomega is already being used by another external.

hi

i think ive covered that by putting it in a laptop with no externals ,instead of the pc which has other externals.

but i will try it tomorrow, without even a memeory stick or printer lead.

i hear the motor start, lights on

but nothing

Some advice, I would steer away from eBay for any PC parts and accessories unless you know the seller personally.
Do you mean a new emclosure for the iOmega drive or a PC case?
