What you are having is Delayed Write Errors in Windows. This happens because the "Enable write caching on the disk" is turned on.

To turn it off, just go to the Device Manager and click on the Iomega HD under Hard Drives. Right click and press Properties. Then go to Policies and clear the "Enable write caching on the disk" check box and press OK.

Hopefully this will help...
