I've been running the Linux version of the Cloud Edition software (version 2.2), and that is the version I have. Some parts have issues, but I can still transfer files from my PC to the 200D. It would be easier to just get a copy of the software if it had a Linux version.
A little bit of background: the firmware on my ix4-200d was completely missing, so I tried to upgrade using the recovery partition on the drive. But I keep on getting the error 603. Now I have read your post and your backup strategy, I think I can make it run on linux and a wireless network. Does this sound a feasible way to go?
My only wish is to have the ability to burn my own DVDs. I have tried using my DVD writer to burn a disc, but it cannot read my CD-R discs. I have found a couple of free software solutions, but it is not the same as having the physical disc drive to burn a DVD, plus the need for my computer to be connected to the Internet to download the disc. I have not experienced any glitches to date, but I fear that the day will come when the software doesn't have the latest firmware or some bug appears that causes the player to malfunction. I will do everything in my power to avoid that day, but it is in the best interests of my customers to do the same.
I have a single question: When I open the Iomega PC software, it says that my drive is a disk drive, not a hard drive. I'm not sure if this is because the hard drive was reformatted, or if it's the result of a bug in the software. If it's the latter, how do I fix it?
I am happy to see that the Iomega products have improved and hope you keep them coming. I am having a hard time finding the firmware update option I used back in 2006 and if I am able to find it, I will send it back.
After several months of waiting for a Lion-compatible firmware upgrade for my ix4-200d, I came across your website. I followed your link to the Iomega knowledge base article and also successfully installed the Cloud Edition software. It was not an absolutely smooth install, but after two tries it installed successfully and I have been functional ever since.
