Re: 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.

HOW TO FORMAT A ZIP DRIVE FOR MACINTOSH SYSTEM 7.6.1. I need to copy data from my old mac's hard drive in order to copy it to a new machine.

Format on your old Macintosh using standard Mac HFS, then your new Mac will read the files without problems. Reformat the discs if they came pre-formatted for DOS as the filenames won't copy properly and will be very slow to read/write If your new Mac is FireWire/USB only, then you'll need to track down a USB Zip drive (the 100Mg or 250meg versions will read your discs ok.)

This will walk through the steps to create a bootable USB flash drive for the purpose of installing a Vista or Windows 7 OS. These instructions assume that you have a computer with Windows Vista installed on it.
· USB Flash Drive (4GB+)
· Microsoft OS Disk (Vista / Windows 7)
· A computer running Vista / Windows 7
Step 1: Format the Drive
The steps here are to use the command line to format the disk properly using the diskpart utility. [Be warned: this will erase everything on your drive. Be careful.]
Plug in your USB Flash Drive
Open a command prompt as administrator (Right click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select “Run as administrator”
Find the drive number of your USB Drive by typing the following into the Command Prompt window:
list disk
The number of your USB drive will listed. You’ll need this for the next step. I’ll assume that the USB flash drive is disk 1.

Format the drive by typing the next instructions into the same window. Replace the number “1” with the number of your disk below.
select disk 1
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=NTFS
When that is done you’ll have a formatted USB flash drive ready to be made bootable.

Step 2: Make the Drive Bootable
Next we’ll use the bootsect utility that comes on the Vista or Windows 7 disk to make the flash drive bootable. In the same command window that you were using in Step 1:
Insert your Windows Vista / 7 DVD into your drive.
Change directory to the DVD’s boot directory where bootsect lives:
cd d:\boot

Use bootsect to set the USB as a bootable NTFS drive prepared for a Vista/7 image. I’m assuming that your USB flash drive has been labeled disk G:\ by the computer:
bootsect /nt60 g:

You can now close the command prompt window, we’re done here.
Step 3: Copy the installation DVD to the USB drive
The easiest way is to use Windows explorer to copy all of the files on your DVD on to the formatted flash drive. After you’ve copied all of the files the disk you are ready to go.
Step 4: Set your BIOS to boot from USB
This is where you’re on your own since every computer is different. Most BIOS’s allow you to hit a key at boot and select a boot option.
I used these instructions to get my new Dell Mini 9 laptop loaded with Windows 7 (the PDC bits). HTH.

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 ;-)

Toshiba 2 gb flash drive showing 0 disk space

You can only format these drives in mode FAT16 or FAT32.
Try to format it in FAT32 mode and let Windows choose the default sectors for you. This is the better solution.
As I can see, the operating system recognise your drive that mean the correct driver was loaded.
After a new format whith the correct params if your flash drive shows the same thing 0 disk space 0 disk space used, your drive is DEAD.
It happens if you had unplug your flash drive whithout stoping it by cliking on the icon in the notification window (near the clock), the icon is mini drive whith a green arrow. Allways unplug the USB devices by this because you have the +5 voltage on this connector and if you don't do this an arcking effect happens betwen your device and the connector.
