Hi all.

I have two Iomega Zip 250 disks that have somehow become corrupted, any ideas how/what software I can use to recover my work on these disks.

Much appreciated.

Thanks PO79 but the software returns the follows disk error:

Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)

Any ideas?

Tried Recuva, Bad Copy Pro, PC Inspector and a few other programs but nothing will solve the problem.

Ideas, solutions please

You could try this free Iomega Zip 250 recovery program it's number 6 on the list
Data Recovery 3.0 free click here

You should also make sure the problem is not a loose connection as this can cause the error message.

Also have you tried copying the contents to your C: drive?

I will try and use the program (6) to talk about tomorrow. Can't copy onto c: drive because nothing will open, contents of g: zip drive won't open.

Google for the FREE program "CDCheck".

I have used this program to repair and cure the Cyclic Redundancy check on CDs and DVDs but I've never tried it on Zip discs.
It's worth a try, though!!
