Steve, The 1st thing is to install the correct driver for the 100 on the computer you are using. Is it a Mac or PC? What model of computer is it. I have been able to use the Zip100 disks with an older IIGS and some older Macs (Performa and Mac SE) with no problems. I have had no experience with the PCs. The disks formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 can be read by both Mac and PC. Those formatted for the PC can also be read by Macs if PC Exchange is installed. Mac disks cannot be read by a PC.
Write back with more info to clarify your exact situation.

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

Does it recognize other peripherals plugged in? If the usb port is good you have need of drivers for your Zip drive. Or the bad news is, the zip is bad.

Iomega zip drive Z100ATAPI returns error message: "Insert Disk into drive H:" even though there is a disk in it. It is recognized by the system and Device Manager in Windwos XP says the drive is...


Just because the device manager says the drive is working fine doesn't mean it is. If it won't recognize the ZIP disk, either the disk itself is bad or the zip drive is bad. I would try another zip disk and see if it will read a known good zip disk.
