    Well my device was working great until the last week, when I could no longer access it via the desktop software, no ip address access, absolutely no control over my iomega store center. I checked online and one of the tips was to reset the device to be able to regain desktop access over the device.

    The documents I went through advised to keep pressing the reset button at the back of the device until the red lamp at front lights up, however nothing happens when I do so although the red lamp does light up, yet the security preferences are still the same and I still can not get access via any of my PC's or mac's.

    Do u have any ideas how can I re-access the network hard drive.

    Please note, that the desktop interface positively recognizes the iomega's IP, however I can not access it when I click on the shares button I receive a message that the iomega is not available. When i try to re-add the device using the mentioned IP address, I receive a message that the required IP is inaccessible since it is located on a different subnet and it is not routable??? Any suggestions

    That means your ix2 and your PC are on different subnets. The ix2 has a default ip of 192.168.X.X and your PC obviously has an ip from a different subnet, like 172.16.X.X. On windows, you can assign a second ip to your network adapter from the 172.16.net. That should make the ix2 accessible again.

    But the iomega's desktop software has and IP which is within my IP range and even from the cmd screen the IP pinges positively; so how can it be on a different subnet.

    Well the problem still persists, it seems that I have a corrupt firmware or something.

    Hello,
    I also have the same problem. The device worked for about 8 months and then this issue developed. have tried all the suggested solutions with no result It is not on a different subnet mask despite the message. I believe it is just not enabled for access other than directly on the network but don't know why. If anyone has any other ideas......help!

    cheers

    I did a full rebuild of my Iomega ix2 using software from Iomega and it is now working perfectly and has been for some time. Apparently the issue was a corrupted disk and and the error message was not indicative of the issue. I rebuilt both disks using instructions I found on the web and Iomega software. It is all doable so don't give up on your unit and make sure in the future you power it down properly. I am pretty sure that is how my disk got corrupted in the first place.

    good luck

  9. Hi Jeff,
    Someone gave me an Iomega Ix2-200. After connecting the power supply and ethernet, I observed no noise and a rapidly blinking white light on the front. I power cycled the unit by holding down the power button for 15 sec while unplugging the p/s and then plugging back in. Nothing. Next, while plugged in, I hit the reset button for 15 seconds, and after a bit it sounded like a drive might be turning. My windows 7 pc has not recognized the unit, so i found a Lenovo EMC storage manager that was supposed to be backwards compatible for the Ix2. It doesn't recognize the unit. I am kind of a novice at this, and know very little about IT anything. Can you point me in the right direction for software/firmware and how to install, and setup. It seems that most of what I've seen for drivers or firmware links leads to a dead end online. Thanks

  11. I don't know if I can upload a file but there is an iomega firmware updater which runs in windows and can be installed on a USB drive to reload your Iomega. If you can send me your email address to me at jefft104@hotmail.com I may be able to help.
    cheers
