I have 3 PC and a laptop. I have been using Zip 100 disks to save data and move it between them. My oldest, a Win95 machine can be revised as a Win98SE but it will lose all data in the process. Currently...


Hi mattbarrett2 !
Hi , I was in a similar situation a while ago , meaning I needed to back up a Win95 HDD .
I succeeded by taking the drive out of the desktop and connecting it to a win 7 pc . I first tried by putting the drive in a external USB box and connecting it to the Win7 machine . It was a Quantum drive . The pc recognized the drive in the Device Manager but I couldn' access the data in " My Computer " . Then , I connected the Quantum inside my Win7 machine , directly to the IDE port but not using the power plug yet . I booted the computer , waited for Win 7 to be settled and connected the Quantum to the power plug and it worked . I was able to transfer the full content
( 1 GB , ha ha ! ) on a dvdrom and format the Quantum afterwards . I didn't need it anymore but I could have easily placed it back into the Win95 unit and install a new supported OS on it .
Maybe this will help you ?
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

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.

Pfaff 7570 connection to new XP laptop


In this FAQ list (from PFAFF web) you find 100 times the same question and answer:
H402 My new computer does not have any serial COM ports, so how does it communicate with my Pfaff creative 7570?

You will need to obtain a USB Serial Adapter, which adds a serial port to your computer by plugging it into a USB port. Suitable adapters can be obtained from Belkin [http://www.belkin.com] and Keyspan [http://www.keyspan.com].
The following USB Serial Adapters are known to work with the Pfaff creative 7570:
• Belkin F5U103
• Keyspan USA-19QW
Please note that the Belkin F5U109 is listed as working with the Pfaff creative 2140/2144 (FAQ #H405), but it does not work the Pfaff creative 7570.

Iomega zip port


First of all, make certain you are only using 100 MB disks in a 100 MB reader.

If the problem is more complex than that, I have several questions:

Can you read different disks?

what type of connection is the zip drive using with the computer? USB?

does the zip drive need an external power supply?

will the zip drive successfullly read disks when connected to a different computer?

does the zip drive appear under my computer at all? even as an empty drive?

what operating system are you using?
