Iomega USB External Hard Drive

Postby cmilhaus » Mon May 25, 2009 10:20 am

I have an older 80GB Iomega USB external hard dribe that I would like to use with "Mint" for backups. I am having a devil of a time finding drivers for it
I have tried to get it recogized in Mint and no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would be most grateful

Connect the disk and run lsusb (note that l is a lower case L) and post here
Maybe it's possible to find something from the ID
Once you know the ID start searching for it and different variations of Linux

As you can see this old Iomega is not discovered at all....
This one won't work...
