Iam sorry but it seems you may have lost the data. Because the Metal cover has nothing to do with the media being read by the drive. The metal cover is only there to protect the disc from environmental threats. So, my friend i think since it was sitting around with out the Metal sleeve. it may have gotten corrupt.

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: http://www.jufsoft.com/badcopy/zip_recovery.asp?rid=google&kid=gzr0201 It's worth a try

How do you get a disk to pop out of a iomega zip 100


Hello.

If your iomega drive is connected to your computer, open My Computer and right-click on the Zip disk drive icon and choose the option to eject.

If unsuccessful, or the drive is not connected to your computer, remove the disk manually. Look for a small hole or lever. If a small hole, use a straightened paper clip and push into the hole to remove the disk. If a lever, lift and pull backwards.

Hope this helps.

My Z100atapi Zip drive is recognized by Windows 7, but the old disks are not in a recognized file format. I need to get the old data ..


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.

Good Luck,

Mikeywaf

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.

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?
