I have exactly the same problem. I will try to buy a used internal zip drive over web with the same especifications to try to fix my BR8. I have already carefully removed the broken zip drive from the BR8. It was not so easy, but is not too complicated. The next step will be find out a working 100MB zip drive. I founded some in ML(Mercado Livre) but it was in a very distant city from mine and the mail expenses are higher then the zip drive itself. Good Luck for us. http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-89306161-_JM

The Drive no longer works when plugged into a laptop. Placed a DVD in the slot (non-tray) and now it will not come out. The release button does not work and there is no pinhole to poke with a paperc


Don't know this drive in particular, but here are some ideas.

Try holding down the release button for a reeeeally long time (120 seconds, maybe?)

See if you can get the pre-boot diagnostics to eject it:
1) Boot up the machine
2) At the Dell Logo, Press the 'P' key and 'F12' at the same time. This will give you power-up options.
3) Arrow down to Diagnostics and Press Enter.
4) Wait for about a 10 minute test to finish. You will be prompted to interact with the video color test, just Press 'Y' to confirm you are looking at colors.
5) When prompted with 'No problems have been found...' Press 'N' to not continue with the memory test. 'Booting Diagnostic Utility Partition' will appear.
6) Press any key on the keyboard to continue.
7) When prompted to choose an option, arrow to 'Test System' and Press the Spacebar. The 'Main Menu - Service Tag ' will appear.
8) Arrow to 'Custom Test' and Press Spacebar to select the option. The 'Customize' interface will appear.

At this point you have two options which may work for you:

9a) Double-Click on the 'Keyboard' test.
10a) when prompted with 'This test checks the keyboard...' Press OK to continue.
11a) Using the keys on the keyboard, starting with 'Esc', Press on the keyboard each highlighted key, until you finally get to the Finesse Eject button. Your disk will automatically eject!
12a) Press ESC twice to exit the test, and then Click on the 'X' to close the testing interfaces that appear. Ultimately, your system will reboot.
or
9b) Select CD/DVD test
10b) After getting to the part of the test that tells you to eject the CD, click "OK" to continue, just click "OK", it will do it 3 times.
11b) Then it will say "IT'S GOING TO TEST THE EJECT FEATURE OF THE DRIVE" that's when it will eject out.
12a) Press ESC twice to exit the test, and then Click on the 'X' to close the testing interfaces that appear. Ultimately, your system will reboot.

If none of that works, it's time to get physical.
1) Peek in the slot and see if you can see a release button inside. Here's a video that shows what to do if you can find a release button: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvBBSbeVsnQ
(the video says the button will be 12 mm from the left side of the opening, but that is model-specific, I think).
2) Peek in the slot and see if you can see a metal tab holding the disk in.
a) If so, see if you can move it.
b) If not, try sticking a piece of cardboard with double-side tape to see if you can stick it to the disk and pull it out.

look up on the main WD site the model number of your drive and make sure you have the correct drivers installed. external drives need drivers too. also make sure your plug and play is accepting external drives.

Yes. You have the wrong SD or the door isn't closed on the sidekick. PNY does sell adapters but you're better off getting the right size. Walmart should be able to exchange it for you since it sounds like they told you to get the wrong one.

Zip drive does not eject the disk and will not power up.


To the left of the Eject Button/Activity Light is a Disk Eject Hole. It will be a very small hole big enough for you to straighten out a paperclip and push in to hit the eject the disk

It could be that the USB port on that computer is not delivering enough power.  Will your Drive accept external power?

USB problem


I think first you have to change your motherboard then start your comp. and run the motherboard supporting C.D. on comp.and install it. After that remove it and put your old one and do the same functio. by that i don't have to trace your Motherboard circuits.
