Hiya all,

I have an Iomega 250 MByte Parallel Zip Drive. However when I insert some zip disks it just ejects them straight away. However when put the zip into another Iomega 250 MByte Parallel Zip Drive it reads it fine. This only happens with a few zip disk most are ok. But how can i stop this? is this a common problem?

Cheers

"is this a common problem?"

No, it's not a common problem and I don't really have a solution/suggestion for you.

However, I stopped using my ZIP disks/drive some months ago (for backup or saving additional copies of files) on the basis that ZIP drives are much less common these days.

I now exclusively use USB pen drives instead.
