    If you have problems ejecting your zip disk make sure you are following
    the correct procedure for doing so. First off, you need to unmount it -

    How do I manually eject a disk from my Zip external drive?

    If a Zip® disk will not eject due to a power failure or the eject
    button fails to operate properly, use the following steps to manually
    remove the disk:

    Warning: Never manually remove a disk while the power supply
    is connected to the Zip drive or force a disk in or out of the Zip
    drive, as this could damage the drive.


    1. Straighten out the end of a paper clip.



    2. Locate the emergency eject hole on the drive (refer to the pictures below)
    Zip USB
    Zip Parallel Port
    Zip SCSI External



    1. Insert the straightened end of the paper clip into the emergency eject hole.




    If you are still unable to manually eject the Zip disk from your Zip
    drive, please contact an Iomega Technician by selecting the ‘Additional
    troubleshooting and support options’ link at the bottom of this page.

Iomega ZIP drive Model Z10052 purchased in 1998. Disk is stuck inside. Have turned off electricity & used the paper clip as shown in Troubleshooting. Doesn't work, think maybe disk was put in wrong....


Some Iomega Zip drives suffer from what end users have dubbed "The Click of Death". The symptoms of the drive meltdown under this conditions is that the disk will not eject and makes a distinct clicking noise when it attempts to spin up. I do not now if the Z10052 is specifically a model of the Zip drive that is effected by this problem.

I do know that others, though I have never had the occasion to use it myself, have had success with stick disks in ZIP drives by powering down the unit then re-powering it back up while holding the drive eject button in during the process [holding the button down the whole time]. They report this has caused the disk to eject.

OK.. I could not get a disk to eject from my wii console. I tried unplugging it and slapping it on the side.. I also found this site trying to figure out what i can do.. I took some of yalls advice on...


Oh my God ;-) Isn't it funny sometimes when you don't notice simple things, happens all the time.
I one time spent 30mins trying to turn on a PC, to only notice I was pressing the "reset" button and not the power button!
Glad I'm not alone.

Disk won't eject on my iMac


Ok, I assume you have hit the eject button on the keyboard. Try dragging the CD icon on the desktop to the trash can. If that doesn't work, Shut down the computer and start up while holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Another option is to open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder. Another option is to Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Lastly if your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button. One of these should work.

Zip drive does not eject the disk and will not power up.


To the left of the Eject Button/Activity Light is a Disk Eject Hole. It will be a very small hole big enough for you to straighten out a paperclip and push in to hit the eject the disk
