My IOMEGA mini max hard drive has stopped working, it starts up, but I cannot access any of my images.
Am I right in understanding that Iomega have been taken over/merged with Lenovo.
On their website I cannot find any info as to what to do with regard to repairs/faults etc, or even how to contact them.
Anyone any ideas, I have approx. 5000 images, some of which are not backed up, yeah, I know!

Sometimes it helps to put the drive in the freezer overnight and try to fire it up in the morning.
If the hard drive is under warranty you will find Iomega will replace the drive rather than attempt a repair because of the high cost of repair.
You could try taking the drive out of its case and connecting directly to a computer to see if the computer can read the drive.
If the above fails there are companies that specialise in recovering data from crashed hard disks but their charges are very high you could easily pay £400 upwards.
If all else fails, and if the images are important, there are data recovery companies who will likely be able to get the data for you- it is no cheap but let me know if you want a recommendation
