Hello,

First off here is a useful link for you to use in the future. All you have to do is select the model zip drive you have.

Formatting a zip disc is the same way you would format a floppy or a hard disk.

Turn the zip drive on and insert the disc you want to reformat. Next click on my computer. Find the zip drive disk and right click on it. Go down to where it say's "format" and click on it. You will get a pop up window that tells the disc size and the compression type ntfs or fat, click on start and the format will start. Once it is done you are all set. You now have a blank zip disc.

You can download drivers from IOMEGA's site:
https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/iomega_na_en.cfg/php/enduser/cci/subproduct.php?p_prods=1&p_pv=1.1&prod_lvl1=1

The drivers should include software that will allow you to format your Zip disks.

How to Zip and Unzip Files with Peazip?


Follow this steps.
1.PeaZip is a freeware cross-platform archive
manager that provides a single GUI for Open
Source technologies ( 7-Zip , FreeArc, PAQ,
UPX. ..) on Windows, Linux, and BSD. The file
manager allows both to select files and
folders to be archived as Zip files (or other
formats), and to select archives to be
unzipped. Alternatively, file selection can be
performed with PeaZip system's context
menu entries (not featured in PeaZip Portable
version) or simply dragging and dropping files
from / to the program.
2.Archive creation can be started dragging files
on the application, or with "Add" button in
program's tool bar. The archive creation
interface prompts by default creation of a Zip
file, but the file format can be customized, as
well as compression ratio (from faster to
better) and other miscellaneous options,
including encryption. PeaZip relies on
optimized Deflate algorithm for compressing
in Zip format, that usually compress 5-10%
better than standard Deflate but keeping
compatibility with other Zip utilities. 7Z
format gives better compression ratio, but is
slower than Zip. As quite unique feature for
archive management software, PeaZip
supports two factor authentication (password
plus key file), random password generation,
and features an integrated encrypted
password manager. "Advanced" tab features
more fine-grained options, "Console" tab
transform the task in a command line i.e. for
use in scripts or for study purpose,
"Schedule" tab allows to transform the
interactive task in a scheduled one.
3.Archive extraction can be started from system
context menu, or dragging compressed files
on the application, or with "Extract" button in
program's tool bar. It can handle multiple
archives even of mixed types at once, or
selective extraction of content from a single
archive. Over 170 types of archives are
supported: classic ZIP files and its variants,
new WinZip's ZIPX file format, RAR files, old
ACE archives, Microsoft's CAB and WIM files,
Apple's DMG packages, ISO and UDF disk
images, and many more.

I have a Verbatim 500Gb (model #47566) hard drive. After defrag and clean up, when plugging in, I get a message that the disk in drive K is not formatted and would I like to format it now? I know that if I...


People often feel panic when I see this. If I format the drive, will I lose all my data? If not, how could I get access to my files?

My take is that you may have to format the drive (use quick format) and then use recovery software to recover your files.

Here's some information about file recovery, think you need to take a look, very useful

My Z100atapi Zip drive is recognized by Windows 7, but the old disks are not in a recognized file format. I need to get the old data ..


Greetings - According to Iomega your 100 MB ZIP drive media should be fine at being at least readable (the Iomega software does not work with Win 7) natively by Win 7 and Vista. Since the drive is recognized I suspect the problem is actually the discs themselves.

It turns out that the discs were not very good at long term storage and are notorious enough to have a term referring to the problem as the "Zip Burp" where:

  • A) All files on the disk disappear
  • B) Just Compressed Formats such as JPG, ZIP, CAB, ECT Disapear
  • C) "The Disk Needs To Be Reformatted" message is displayed or
  • D) files disappear as you click them


The only way that I know to find out for sure if your discs are good is if you can find someone with an XP machine that will let you temporarily install your Zip drive (including the latest drivers) and see what happens.

Good Luck,

Mikeywaf

What is iso?


An "iso" file is just a disk image.
There are two ways to deal with a disk image: put it on a disk, or make it look like you put it on a disk.


The easiest way to think of an iso file is more like a "zip" or "cab" file, only without the compression.
An iso file contains the image of a disk. That means it contains all the files and folders that were on that disk, much like a zip or cab file contains a collection of files and folders. The real difference is that an iso is a byte-for-byte copy of the low-level data actually stored on a disk.
There's nothing about the iso format that actually knows about files, folders or formats. It's just the raw data from the disk. Now, naturally that raw data, if interpreted correctly, may know about files, folders and format. But, like a disk, the operating system has to look, see what format was used (things like FAT32, NTFS and the like), and interpret the contents of the iso file as if it were reading the raw data from an actual disk.

Video Format for ZVue Elvis - .mtv not recognized


The elvis media player comes with the conversion software on the player in a .zip file. Transfer it to your pc. unzip it. install it. It should solve your problem. Reading the instruction manual is a must. If you have the files on your unit I could use a copy of the .zip files. Please attach and send to primobassoon@sbcglobal.net. The 1 gig partition shows up as drive F on my computer and is fully compatible with windows xp and above. If you formatted your disk you are out of luck. like me. Now I know but it's too late unless some nice person sends me the .zip files. Thanks.

How play format file from zip to 3gp video???thanks before


Hi,
There is no zip format of video file. Zip format is for compressed file.
You need to uncompress the file using winzip application.
After unzipping you will get the 3gp file and you would be able to view the video.
Thanks!
