    I agree with you, IB4G2008. I will need a cable to connect the SYS.230 to my iMac.

    Can you suggest where I might find such a cable that is, as you say, "mac specific" and will enable the SYS.230 to transfer data from its optical disks to the iMac?

How do i make my iomega eGo writable on my Imac?

Been a ton of problems with these drives and Macs. A huge number of complaints about them not mounting. There is a supposed "mac" version that works better. Good luck.

Save my zip disk 100

Chances are the disc has become damaged whilst being stored. It may be that your drive just does not like that particular disc. If this is the case you could ask someone else to try and read the disc for you and transfer the info to a more stable platform like CD or DVD. If your drive is reading all your other discs without incident I'm affraid it may not look good for your valuable disc. I suggest you start transfering the content of your other zips to CD now. Look online for a Data Recovery Service near you. They should be able to help with getting your info off a bad disc. If you feel lucky you can also try the software tool at this link: It's worth a try

I am using a dell laptop and want to know how to transfer files from my laptop to my computer but the cd doesnt really show you how.

Data can be transferred from one computer to another using a Pen-Drive or External Hard Disk (depending upon the size of data). All you have to do is copy and paste the selected/ desired data and No additional software is needed.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Unable to see data on Zip Disks

You are saying that you used zip drive in 1998. i want to tell you that in 1998 the processors were of old versions.therefore,you need to install windows 95,only then you will be able to retrieve your data.
As the only reason to be found is that you used win 95 in 1998,now you are using win xp,the files you stored on your drive were only supported by win 95,hence you need to install win 95.
THANK YOU. hope you get a well experience on

Install the necessary software provided with the handset, The connect the handset via datacable, when the type of connection window pops up select "USB mass storage" or "Data Transfer" mode, then you can access your data on the phone and copy it to the computer.

The Cd is too small for my MAC


Yeah, if you just plug it into the computer and insert a card, the drive pops up on your screen. The CD is not required (thank God) and it WILL GET STUCK, so don't try to insert it. (I did...took me 15 minutes and some very small tweezers to get the stupid thing out!)
