Iomega Hard Drive Software Download For Mac

Posted onby

I am not very technologically literate, so please be patient with me!
Here is the situation: I have an Iomega 500GB external hard drive that I used exclusively with my MacBook. Then my Mac's hard drive crashed, and what I have on my external HD is all I have left. I also have a Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop, and I would like to be able to get the Mac files off the HD, as well as add files from the Dell onto my external HD. However, as you know, you must usually format the HD to make it usable for PC once it is set up for use with a Mac. I have seen other threads that refer to some kind of program that makes this possible, but I am having trouble understanding them, since I don't speak 'PC World.' Can someone explain to me what to do in a way that I can comprehend?
Thank you!

  1. In reply to: How to share external HD with Mac and PC? Did you format the Iomega drive for your Mac? If not, then it is already usable by the Dell, unless it specifically stated on the box that it.
  2. Iomega CopyDisk replaces the default disk copy utility found in Windows and adds support for Iomega drives. Version 4.0.2 offers Iomega Zip 750MB Drive support.
  3. IomegaWare (OS X) for Mac provides integrated features that will help you find, format, protect, manage and change settings on your Iomega drives. Support is included for Zip, Peerless, Jaz, USB PocketZip, FotoShow Digital Image Center, and HipZip products. These drivers make the drive visible within your operating system.
  4. Iomega data recovery software is a powerful tool to retrieve data from Iomega Prestige hard drive. It is capable to retrieve various types of files such as Word files, Excel sheets, Zip/RAR file, media files, EXE files, etc. From Iomega Prestige HDD.

Why Choose This Iomega External Hard Drive Recovery Software: This software works well with USB drives, memory cards, hard drives and even other external storage devices too. There are various different files you can use with this software and it includes: FAT 16, FAT 32, ExFAT, NTFS, HFSX, HFS+.

Although Iomega's Portable Hard Drive Mac Edition costs a little more than most 500GB drives, you're getting a lot for your money. With brushed aluminium sides and black plastic base and top, it looks great next to your iMac or Apple Display.

The hard drive itself is a speedy 7200rpm model, which tops the the more common 5400rpm HDDs used in most portable drives, and it boasts both FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 connectivity. A FW400- to-800 cable is included, along with a standard FW800 lead, and the USB cable has two Type A plugs for when extra power is needed.

Like most recent Iomega drives, it comes supplied with a downloadable suite of applications. You get a 12-month free subscription to Trend Micro Smart Surfing for Mac, MozyHome Online Backup (2GB free) and Iomega's own QuikProtect backup software.

You also get a Drop Guard case, which protects the drive against falls of up to seven feet, and if you download the Iomega encryption application, you can protect your data with AES 256-bit security.

The 7200rpm drive proved its worth in our benchmarking tests, where it achieved random read/write speeds of 11.175/16.519MB/s under FireWire 800, and 11.326/12.491MB/s with USB.

Free Drivers For Iomega External Hard Drive

Our only reservation is the price. The Western Digital My Passport Studio 1TB is twice the capacity and costs less. That's not to say Iomega's is poor value for money. Far from it. But if you don't need the higher transfer speeds, you're probably better off with a larger capacity or a cheaper drive.
