The Iomega Media Player is a portable computing solution that acts to store your digital and audio files, acting to play them back without the need for a dedicated full-size operating system such as Windows. Replacing the internal drive on your Iomega player can become necessary where you have filled the original drive to capacity. This can be accomplished using a standard IDE hard drive from a computer, as the Iomega uses identical parts.
Things You'll Need
- IDE hard drive
- Phillips screwdriver
Unscrew the screws at the bottom of the Iomega player and remove the external encasing.
Disconnect the power and IDE cables from the back of the current hard drive.
Remove the hard drive from the Iomega and replace it with the new drive.
Reconnect the power and IDE cables to the power and IDE ports on the back of the drive, respectively.
