I've got important files on this hard drive and the idea of formatting it is not what I want to do. Need help please!! More about : iomega external hard drive reading problem mac COLGeek a b G Storage September 26, 2012 5:40:08 PM This sounds like a potentially defective HDD. Have you tried accessing it from another computer? The idea is to isolate the problem as the HDD or the computer (or USB port). Please clarify. oskarandcavelli September 26, 2012 10:57:07 PM Yes, tried it on my imac and my macbook. The light on the HDD is lit so doesn't seem to be a USB problem. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
