I have a fully functional zip 100 drive I bought. You plug it into the printer
port. I did and I booted my computer it doesn't detect it and there isn't even a choice in add hardware for it to bee added to your system! What do I do?

Thanks.

zip 100 drives are useless, seeing the disks have a very short life

Shame its windows, useless. You have to find the appropriate drivers off the internet, surely iomega will be able to help there

thanks, I downloaded the software but now i've found out that I have a zip250mb disk and it isn't compatible with the zip100 drives.
But I have found that they are very inexpensive on ebay!

Thats a good point vangar.

Zip disks die after a while. I bought mine from the post office and it only worked once.
