The hard drive in my Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive (hmnhd) has died with the loss of 700GB of data. This is extra annoying as i was in the middle of collecting data from all of my machines into the one place (the dead drive) with the idea that i’d then make a backup of that. Suffice is to say i’m gutted. This is the first hard drive that has completely gone on me with catastrophic data loss. FML.

Logic board, maybe? You're unlikely the first one it's happened to, so find out what others did.<br /><br />And I assume you've connected it directly to a desktop.<br /><br />Otherwise it's worth the €700 or whatever for it back.
Yeah, tried connecting it to a desktop, and did a good deal of reading on the Seagate forums. It doesn't spin up and makes this noise <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_X8dIVWy20" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_X8dIVWy20</a> The motor bearing has seized. It fell about 30cm onto a wood panelled floor.<br /><br />I'm completely broke atm so sending it off is out of
See my earlier review of Iomega hmnhd <a href="http://mcmonkeys1rants.blogspot.com/2010/10/iomega-home-media-network-hard-drive.html" rel="nofollow">http://mcmonkeys1rants.blogspot.com/2010/10/iomega-home-media-network-hard-drive.html</a>
percussive maintenance, eh? :)<br /><br />speaking of seagate – my firewire port became loose and fell into the HD after 2 weeks. it was doing nay but sitting on my desk at the time.
haha, yea percussive maintenance is a great term isn't it?<br /><br />yea, that drive was supposed to be energy efficient n all this hype, the reason it broke was because of the ridiculously flimsy floating liquid bearing -which is some great tree saving device, just don't drop your hat on it! in addition it was the noisiest drive i've ever owned, AND it never spun down! energy
Shit 1, I also have an Iomega LDHD-UP 1.5 TB (among others) Slow ass Chinese piece of crap. You could contact them directly and suggest that you demonstrate your percussive maintenance on them at a location of their choosing or alternatively try this type of route for pleasures.<br /><br />http://www.27bslash6.com/overdue.html<br />or<br />http://www.bannedinhollywood.com/
