Hi all, thanks for the previous help about my Iomega Minimax 500 GB hard drive. Miraculously, one day it just appeared on my desktop again after I thought it had died. (I have 2 Macs, so it's not them that is the problem), so it's been working again. Now again it is not appearing on either of my computers. Switched on and off, used different cables, again after a few hours it appeared on one of them. Went out, came back home, again same problem, no icon appears, not recognized in disc utillity etc etc. WTF! Any body had the same problems with this hard drive? I have rang the Apple Store who were useless, they referred me to Iomega where they where I spoke to a 'live chat' guy, then phoned a number and they said it could be something to do with the external casing?. If I have to retrieve the data he said it could cost £500!!!! I would like to hear from anybody who has experienced similar problems or anybody who may know what the problem is. I HATE this hard drive, it was recommended to me by the 'Geniuses' at the Apple Store, and I've had nothing but problems and they are no help what so ever. Very Angry!!! It is now my mission to write as many bad online reviews about this piece of s**t!
