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.
To register and continue with any of the options, follow the link :https://iomega-eu-en.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/iomega_eu_en.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=18102&prod_lvl1=1&prod_lvl2=10&cat_lvl1=1018&p_prods=1,10&p_cats=1018&p_pv=2.10&p_cv=1.1018&p_sid=75Gro9Pj
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.
Today I try to use my Iomega 750 USB drive and found it has died. There is no light on the drive and I cannot extract the disc out which is within it. How do I get the disc out and is it worth attempting a Fix. Deperately need some help.
I'm trying to re-install iomegaware zip 100 & it tells me it does not support windows 2000 so I need to update drivers. Can you please help me figure this out as I rely on my zip for backups. I have version 21.1.
thanks very much
