Welcome to the forums!

As for your issue - I switched to a new iMac myself about a week ago. So far I have not experienced any issues with drives being detected. I have plugged in all my USB drives (jump drives and hard drives) and they have been detected in OSX without incident.

As far as I know, OSX should be able to READ - ANY windows drive. However when it comes to writing them I know for sure NTFS is OUT of the question. Fat and Fat32 I beleive it can write to (might need to double check that).

My guess, your issue probably stems from the fact that it's an IOMEGA device. I have never had good luck with them to start with, hence why I no longer use them.

You should (in theory) be able to plug in your drive (give it a few seconds) and it should appear in the upper right hand of your screen as a USB device (right under Macintosh HD). The icon is usually orange with the USB sybol on it.

Hope that helps somewhat?
