    I have a IOMEGA External Hard Drive (Model MDHDU). This is a 336 GB hard drive. I am not sure if this hard drive has a fan inside. I think it does. Do you know of any external fan I can buy for this Hard Drive?


    What is your recommendation on what the best External Hard Drive is?


    What ever happen to IOMEGA? I noticed they do not have a website. I've been a fan of IOMEGA since 2004.

    Some have fans, some do not. If a model with a fan fails, you may or may not be able to get a replacement. If it doesn't have a fan, there is no way to simply add one.

    If you think it's an issue, simply buy an external enclosure which does have a fan and install the HDD of your chosing.
