Question about Iomega ZIP 250 External ZIP Drive

2 Answers

My IomegaSAM.kext is defective or improperly installed. How do i correct this problem? I have a new Mac Pro and a new Zip Drive 250 USB Powered. I have tried to install the software twice, but get the same message and no new software is installed in Applications. The zip drive seems to be working, however.

    The first posted solution has nothing to do with my problem or even my computer!! I need to be able to acquire, and properly install a good copy of the IomegaSAM.knext extension on my new MacPro. Since the software I received with my new Iomega Zip Drive 250 did not do this, I need to find out where I can obtain the installer for this extension. Is this a Mac Problem or an Iomega Problem??

First thing, while connected to the MacBook, highlight the drive, select "Get Info" , highlight the drive's icon, and select "Get Info" from the "File" menu in Finder. Click on the triangle next to "Ownership and Permissions" until the triangle points down (it may be this way first up). Now put a tick in the box next to "Ignore ownership and permissions".
Now "eject" it properly from the MaBook and connect it to the iMac.
It may now show up.
If not, head to Finder / Preferences and in the "General" and "Sidebar" tabs, make sure that drives are set to show in the finder and the sidebar.

HOW TO FORMAT A ZIP DRIVE FOR MACINTOSH SYSTEM 7.6.1. I need to copy data from my old mac's hard drive in order to copy it to a new machine.


Format on your old Macintosh using standard Mac HFS, then your new Mac will read the files without problems. Reformat the discs if they came pre-formatted for DOS as the filenames won't copy properly and will be very slow to read/write If your new Mac is FireWire/USB only, then you'll need to track down a USB Zip drive (the 100Mg or 250meg versions will read your discs ok.)

Does it recognize other peripherals plugged in? If the usb port is good you have need of drivers for your Zip drive. Or the bad news is, the zip is bad.

Mac not recognizing External Western Digital HD.


the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Hi-

Chances are these large memory hard drive should be plugin with a USB and adapter of its own since 320Gb is too big and needs power to be able to recognize. But if you find it defective you have a year warranty from the manufacturer, you can call them up for a replacement.

Hope this help. Thanks for using Fixya!

Slow write speed


Had the same problem with my WD2500KS-00MJB0. It also has the (widely reported) defect where the thermal sensor is not reporting correctly (ie 40C when it's just been powered on, and should be reading approx 20C!).

My suspicion is that this line of WD2500KS models has a defective thermal sensor, and after a period of time the thermal sensor fails. When this happens, I suspect that the drive firmware tries to lower the temperature by reducing write speed.

My drive was out of warranty, so I used the 'Customer Loyalty Upgrade' discount on the WD Warranty Check site to get a new 500G drive. I still have the old drive, and some technical knowledge, so I'll see if there's a hardware hack to disable the thermal sensor.

Otherwise, go to the WD site's Warranty Check page, and get yourself a (heavily discounted) Customer Loyalty replacement.
