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 believe you can use a PATA drive to USB adaptor. Hopefully you have the software for the Iomega drive, or perhaps that is available from Iomega. I've never tried it with an Iomega but have with numerous other drives. I hope this helps.

How could I install my Iomega ZIP 100 driver in my laptop? The operating system is Windows XP. The ZIP 100 is already connected to the laptop through a Parallel Port to USB adaptor.

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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!

Want to connect to my computer


What connector/interface does your PC has
9-pin or 25-pin connector

If it has 9-pin connector: use the following:
DB-9 RS-232 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If it has 25-pin connector: use the following:
DB-25 Serial Connection
or
DB-25 RS-232 Serial Connection

If you are configuring the computer to use an RS-422A serial port, you need a special cable. Contact the computer or printer network manufacturer to see if an RS-422A cable is available. If no cable is available, contact your computer manufacturer for your computer pin assignments and have a cable constructed.

The default configuration for the serial port on the printer is for RS-232C serial communication. To set the printer to use RS-422A serial communication, change the control panel Serial Menu’s SERIAL setting to SERIAL=RS-422.
