HI people, can anyone help with my problem plaese, my Iomega 500gb extenal drive has became a second drive in my PC, I have format the drive in a different PC with window vista, but still my XP pc can not recognise it as a usb drive, instead, I think its being read as a second drive.
any help will be greatly appreciated, I have used paragon drive copy to created this problem.
I tried the Backup program onto DVD's (Fortunately) and then found that you have to pay /ugrade to restore the backup. I had your problem but with DVD's. I solved it by Formatting them in Disk Management on my machine, and also you will find that you will need to rename your drive in disk management to give it your original drive letter. I was furious that this "Full Program" did this, I spent 3 hours backing up, and another hour figuring how to get back to normal. Good luck finding the drive, try reinstalling it and rebooting.
"although I can see it in my xp" Are you looking at it in Windows Explorer or Disk Management? If you can see it in Disk Management and can't do anything with it, I have a feeling that it has died, it may just be a coincidence that you were using Paragon. If anyone has any ideas now is the time!
