Iomega 1TB Minimax HD not mounting
Fortunately, I always do back up and my Aperture file (870 GB) was backed-up in a Vault (on another Iomega 1TB). I am only short of the 3 last days shooting (some 300 pics which are not of the utmost importance).
Meanwhile, restoring my Aperture vault has been causing a lot of problems so far and I am expecting replies from the Aperture forum. But at least all my photos (60,000 +) are safe.
it is just that all my albums are not synchronized and I may have to sort them out all over from their main projects.
Thanks for your tips on Iomega. If I was clever enough with my DIY, I would definitely take the chance of opening my drive, but I am useless and I know that I would make a mess of it.
I did order a "S-ATA&IDE USB2.0" set to connect a drive to a computer and I will try it on a 500GB Western Digital Book that also failed recently with nothing important. Fingers crossed, if I succeed I might go for the Iomega. (Specially after what you are telling me about their poor respect of consumers - I have 7 Iomega drives of various models and size).
