Iomega LDHD-UP2 Desktop Hard Drive


I have an Iomega Desktop Hard Drive LDHD-UP2, 1 TB.  I also have Iomega Automatic Backup 1.0.2 software from a different external drive.  Will the backup software work with the Desktop Hard Drive?

That software has been discontinued and no longer supported, but I believe it should work with your external drive.

Thank you for your help.  I tried the software and it seems to work.


Did Iomega or Lenovo ever issue updated software for automatic backup?

Iomega was purchased by Lenovo and do not put out any software for backing up.  There are alot out there and can google search for backup software and most of them will work with our devices.

Iomega LDHD-UP2 HHD will not read - HELP please

My HHD connects to the PC, for long enough, to let me see some of the content, but then it shuts down.

Every time I try to download the content, it shuts down, and Windows shut it down, and give a error-code 43.

Apparently no other information is aweilable...

It got my old pictures on it, and I would hate to loose these...

Re: Iomega LDHD-UP2 HHD will not read - HELP please

A Code 43 error is generated when Device Manager stops a hardware device because the hardware reported to Windows that it's having some kind of unspecified problem.

This extremely generic message could mean there's a true hardware issue or it could simply mean that there's a driverproblem that Windows isn't seeing as such but that the hardware is being affected by.



  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already. or try another computer

  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 43 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 43 error.

    Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 43 error.

    Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
  3. Reinstall the drivers for the device. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a possible solution to a Code 43 error.

    Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 43 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

    Note: Properly reinstalling a driver, as in the instructions linked above, is not the same as simply updating a driver. A full driver reinstall involves completely removing the currently installed driver and then letting Windows install it over again from scratch.
  4. Update the drivers for the device. It's also very possible that installing the latest drivers for the device could correct the Code 43 error.

    If updating the drivers does remove the Code 43 error, it means that the stored Windows drivers you reinstalled in Step 3 were were probably damaged or were the wrong drivers.
  5. Install the latest Windows service pack. One of Microsoft's service packs or other patches for Windows might contain a fix for whatever might be causing the Code 43 error so if you're not fully updated, do so now.
  6. Update BIOS. In some situations, an outdated BIOS could be causing a specific issue with a device that is causing it to report an issue to Windows - thus the Code 43 error.
  7. Replace the data cable that connects the device to the computer, assuming it has one. This potential fix for a Code 43 error is most often useful if you're seeing the error on an external device like a USB or FireWire device.
  8. Purchase a powered USB hub if the Code 43 error is showing up for a USB device. Some USB devices need more power than the USB ports that are built in to your computer can provide. Plugging those devices into a powered USB hub solves that issue.
  9. Replace the hardware. A problem with the device itself might be causing the Code 43 error, in which case replacing the hardware is your next logical step. In most cases, this is the solution to a Code 43 error but I wanted you try the easiser, and free, software-based troubleshooting ideas first.
