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.

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!
