I borrowed an iomega external hard drive a couple of months ago to store loads of massive video files from a wedding I shot and am trying to edit. For some reason my computer (A Dell Inspiron 545 w/ Windows Vista Home) won't allow me to look into the HDD when it is connected. Under device manager, it has recognised that a device has been attached but won't let me access any of it.
I tried booting in Ubutntu via a memory stick but just my luck, my PC won't let me do that either. Anyone had any similar problems with iomega HDDs? Would it be worth investing in my own? If so, anybody know of any HDD that definately work with the computer specs described above?
