Disk will not eject


Unplug the drive. insert a paperclip in the hole in the back of the drive. This will manually eject the disk. You can also open the cover but that's a lot more work than you need to go through when a simple paperclip will move the manual eject lever.

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.

How to eject a floppy disk from the external drive? It is stuck in the drive and can't remember how to get it out.


Sometimes the disk stops when ejecting, and remains in a slightly lifted position, making it impossible to eject it no matter what. It has to come back to it's resting place inside the drive and then you can try ejecting it again.
Try to push it back in with something that will not destroy the disk and the drive, like a piece of cardboard, or your finger, if you can reach inside.When it clicks back into place, try ejecting it again. Repeat a couple of times if necessary, it should unlatch eventually.

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

Cant figure out how to use zip drive when i have added a pass to my zip dr 250


1. Insert a blank disk into the zip drive
2. Give this disk a password (it can be any password, as long as you
remember it)
3. Using the Ioega toolset, set the zip drive's sleep time to a large
value (such as 1 minute)
4. Wait a while until the drive "spins down". You will hear the drive
stop spinning.
5. Take a pin or a straighten paper clip and stick it into a hole in
the back of the Zip drive. This will manually eject the blank disk.
6. Insert the disk you want to access (the one you don't know the
password to)
7. now use the IoMega toolset to remove the password. When prompted
for the password use the password from step (2).
This is just a word of warning in case you store any important information like I used to on zip disks. Perhaps move to a more secure medium.
