Re: Not able to access the Jaz Disk

Iomega has quite a bit of customer help info: Click: Other Products Then Click: JAZ 2GB Then Click: Windows XP Then Click: More Answers... Then type in "search text" area: "insert a disk" Then Click: Search Then Click: "Please insert a disk into drive X" error message when inserting or trying to read an Iomega disk If that website's search engine doesn't help, you can also log into: and ask the tech support people there.

One month old hard disk (Hitachi SimpleTough) stopped working

Maybe the disk is good and the board is dead...
Pull the disk out from the case, and connect it directly to the PC, via IDE or Sata cable, whatever the disk is...

KINGSTON removable disk error

Find and check real free space go to my computer and right click your driver letter and click properties it will show what is real ammount of disk. For one 4GB file it must not be problem but for meny little file can take more space besider their sum of capacity is 4GB. At format check correct ammount of data "capacity" is 8GB (7.9) also file system for NTFS or FAT32. FAT cant bear 8GB.

100mb zip disk not reading

These are pre-formatted and servoed at the factory.
Awhile back I was researching the 'Click of death" fault and found a guy in Belgium or Germany that coded a repair program for bad disks. Googlee for it

sometimes when it formats, it hoses the servo information (which the drive uses to keep track of things) and the disk becomes useless. This is why I stopped using ZIP disks and won't even buy a drive when I see them for 9.99 ;-)

C1114 cant read optical disk

I don't think the drive can be adjusted or calibrated. It's dependent on the operating system and the drivers it uses.

It could be the drive itself needs to be replaced so that it can read the format you need.

Is there a way you clean the thing?

Cant figure out how to use zip drive when i have added a pass to my zip dr 250

1. Insert a blank disk into the zip drive
2. Give this disk a password (it can be any password, as long as you
remember it)
3. Using the Ioega toolset, set the zip drive's sleep time to a large
value (such as 1 minute)
4. Wait a while until the drive "spins down". You will hear the drive
stop spinning.
5. Take a pin or a straighten paper clip and stick it into a hole in
the back of the Zip drive. This will manually eject the blank disk.
6. Insert the disk you want to access (the one you don't know the
password to)
7. now use the IoMega toolset to remove the password. When prompted
for the password use the password from step (2).
This is just a word of warning in case you store any important information like I used to on zip disks. Perhaps move to a more secure medium.

Formatting a disk

Iomega drives had a short life and then were overtaken by other technology. They were/are very fragile and had a high fail rate. Time to move on I guess - burn a disk or two.
