Question about Imation SuperDisk External LS120 Drive

1 Answer

I have an Imation SuperDisk drive that I just powered up after years. I'm trying to transfer data from disks onto my macbook. It's working but taking 30 minutes to transfer 2.6 MB. I've got about 10 discs to transfer. Is there a driver I need that would speed this up?

Hello,

You don't need a driver to speed it up. Basically the Imation SuperDisk drive is usually very slow while operating.

The system speed/configuration of your Mac-book or computer would be the only thing that can boost up the speed a bit.

You have no choice than just to be patient still it finish transferring, even though it is going to take a very long period of time.

I hope you understand the above.

Good luck.

Imation 11795 driver WindowsXP


IMATION stopped making the "LS-120" (Laser Servo) drive many years ago, when USB-interface memory-sticks became cheaper & faster. Imation did have parallel-port device-driver software for Windows 95/98/ME, but never updated them for Windows NT/2000/XP.

Instead, disassemble the case, and you will find an IDE-interface Imation LS-120 drive inside. Connect the same "smaller" 4-pin power-connector that used to connect to a 1.44 Mbyte 3.5-inch diskette, set the "master/slave" jumper, and connect an 80-pin IDE ribbon-cable, and connect the other end of the ribbon-cable to an IDE socket on the motherboard.

I have a very old Imation superdisk drive, 9" by 6" size. And I can't find a driver to download


If it is the "internal" Imation SuperDisk drive, then set the drive's "master/slave" jumper (just like you would set the jumper on a disk-drive or CD/DVD drive), and connect it to one of the IDE ribbon-cable connectors (which usually connect disk/CD/DVD drives to the motherboard).

No additional drivers are required, in the above configuration.

My computer has such a drive (120 Mbytes/disk).

As a "random act of kindness", I will read them, and burn the files onto a CD-R. Reply to this message, if you wish to proceed.
