Go to the device manager, remove the zip drive from the storage device menu, the do a cold restart, that is where the power is disconnected for a 5 minute time frame, restart and plug the zip in, the system should recognize it and reload the software.

Ok, when you right-click My Computer, and select properties you should get a small window titled System Properties. In the window you should be looking at General. This shows you the basic information of your system. There are seven tabs you can choose from, but the second one along from General (the one you're already looking at) is called Hardware. This is the one you want. Then select Device Manager. The hardware option has to be there, as it is part of Windows.

Follow what electronick has suggested, but if that doesn't work, you can add your zip drive manually.

Manually adding Zip drive:

Open Control Panel. You want to be in Classic View, if you're not, you can select it from the left at the top. Then you want to select Add Hardware. This will be along the top line. This will start the wizard.

Follow the instructions it gives you, it will search for the new hardware. If it doesn't find it, it will ask you if the hardware is already connected. Click yes. This will start the Troubleshooter.

Also download the most current Service Pack from Microsoft (if you haven't already), as they may have added extra support for the drive.

HI,WELCOME TO FIXYA
This problem is experienced after following performance suggestions found in third-party documentation, on web sites, or in newsgroups. These suggestions instruct users to remove all folders from the desktop of Handheld PC Pro device in order to speed screen-repaint rates. Applying these same steps on a Handheld PC 2000 device causes all desktop icons to disappear.

Microsoft has documented this issue (in Q289674): http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/...

To restore the My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons on the device, follow these steps:

1. Tap Start, tap Programs, and then tap Windows Explorer.
2. Tap the My Documents folder, tap Send To on the File menu, and then tap Desktop as Shortcut.
3. "Soft" reset the MobilePro. The My Handheld PC and icons should return to the desktop. 

Note that you must have at least one folder or shortcut on the desktop in addition to the My Handheld PC and  or else the problem will recur.

First, if you have another machine to test with, try connecting the Zip drive to that machine to verify that the drive and its installed disk are functional. If that works, try connecting it with a new disk (if you have one), and see if you can format that disk with the Disk Utility application (found in the Utilities folder in your Applications folder. If this works, then the disk should appear on the desktop; at least in a Finder window. If this works, then your problem would seem to be a problem with the disk that you currently have in your Zip drive.

Click on start menu and then programes, the Zip250 should be in the list, if not click on "computer" and then disk "C" click on program files and look for Zip250, you should be able to find the icon there. post back if you can't find it

You can try reinstalling the driver
on windows xp
right click my computer, go to properties
click the hardware tab, click device manager button
the zip250 should be under the disk drives
expand it out to find the drive - double click it
in here, under the driver tag you can uninstall it
re-install to hopefully fix

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.
