Question about Iomega ZIP 250 External ZIP Drive

Open Question

Trying to get my files from an iomega 250 External Zip Drive, it doesn't show up on my Windows 7

I have a new cord Parallel to USB to make it work on my Windows 7 but It doesn't show on computer. It does cause Computer to download a driver. I read that if you have the wrong Driver, it will not show the zip drive. I have a zip disk that should install, it sounds like it works; but nothing comes on screen. I can get the old Disks copied for 69.00 at Staples. I Downloaded a Software w32-x86-402 but it said it will not work; so I didn't install. Is there another solution of should I just pay the $69 and junk the stuff. Anyone know. Thanks Martha

SOURCE: Need a driver for macintosh

If its a really old zip drive then its SCSI and not usb. It may even be parallel for a pc. To avoid having to deal with drivers or anything like that. You could probably find a cheap external USB zip drive. You dont need drivers for this, only for the older ones.
Also, you might go to an apple store and get some kid to burn a cd from it, if its just a one time thing.
Hope this helps!

Where can I get appropriate USB cable, i.e, parallel to USB not the original parallel to parallel?


So you have an old Zip drive with a parallel port? You can't connect that using USB. Nor can you connect that to a computer running any version of Windows newer than XP.

Two options:
1) Buy a USB version of the Zip drive and use it to read your disks. Used, USB Zip drives seem to run around $35 or so.
2) Get a computer using an old version of Windows. If it doesn't have a parallel port, you should be able to buy a PCI card with a parallel port on it.

Once you're able to access the files, copy them onto a USB thumb drive. For $10, you can get a 32 GB USB drive, which should hold everything from at least 320 Zip disks.

I have an external Iomega 250 zip drive with a USB connection cable but do not have the power cord/transformer. Where can I get a replacement and will this drive (model Z250USBPCM) work with an iMac?


Yes your model will work with an iMac conveniently. The replacement chord can be gotten from any computer hardware store around. All you have to do is take the unit there so they can access what particular chord is going to function for it.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I had a computer with a slot for reading iomega ZIP 100 disc. My new computer does not have this. Is there a device to read my zip dizc and send the contents to a USB port?


IOMEGA make a USB ZIP drive that reads and writes 100 and 250 Mb disks. Don't know if this is available any more, you might be able to pick one up 2nd hand.
If you still have your old computer, try networking your old and new computer together so you can transfer data from the ZIP drive on your old computer to your new one.
