Windows 7: iomega eGo External drive and Windows Seven compatibility

iomega eGo External drive and Windows Seven compatibility

Hi,

I am thinking about getting an 'iomega (#34836) 1TB eGo USB 2.0 External Hard Drive to replace a much smaller one from a different manufacturer.


However, I have read a few reviews where some folks running Windows 7 had some problems getting it to recognize the iomega eGo External Drive.

Can anyone tell me of any of their experiences with this External Drive while using Windows 7 ... either 'pro or con'?

Thanks and regards,

2harts4ever

No personal experience, but until someone else replies. It is at least listed as compatible:

A Guy,

Thanks for your response. I had seen that link too.

I went ahead and ordered it after seeing it supposedly was compatible with Windows Seven. If I find it isn't ... I will be sure to post back...lol

Thanks and regards,
