I have recently 'un-earthed' my old iomega zip-drive, the 250 parallel port version, along with a few disks in the course of having a clear up of the bottom drawer of my computer desk and I am curious as to what may be on them.
The problem is that my new computer does not have a parallel port - only USB ones. Is there a solution or shall I be forever wondering in vain as to what, if anything useful may be on them?
I contacted Iomega and their solution of course was to buy a 250 USB version !!! Not being made of money I declined as I didn't think 'the light was worth the candle'
Thanks for the speedy responses. I think I will go for the gadget as I have seen a cheapish one advertised on good-old Ebay and I like the fact that, should I want to do a repeat performance I will have the means to do it again easily.
Reading the latest posts has changed my mind, I think I shall now access another computer with a parallel port just to see what, if anything was on the disks. Then I shall take the old zip drive to the charity shop as I really have no use for it now(the reason it was shoved into the drawer in the first place!)
Thanks to each and all
