Iomega 100MB zip disks
On an expedition into the loft I have found around 20 Iomega 100MB zip disks - all helpfully labelled with dates in 2002/3. Probably back-ups and I'd like to know what's one them before I junk them.
Now, I guess that somewhere in said loft is a zip drive - if I'm dead lucky, it might even be attached to a bootable PC. However, this involves work, and possibly a lot of it.
So... does anyone out there know of a USB Zip drive?
I doubt you will find these on IT retailer sites but if you have a quick look at the rainforest people or a certain auction site, you can still pick up an Iomega USB Zip Drive. The former has them secondhand for Â£40 or so whereas the latter apparently has a brand new one for Â£20.
Thanks for this. I now have a bid in for a 250 MB version.
Damn, I'd let you borrow mine if you needed and were close enough (Hertfordshire). How you getting on with the bid?
3 days to go. Big question now is how these ancient back-ups were created. I may be back in the loft trying to cobble something together after all...
Don't forget to set aside some time to google "zip drive click of death"
Yep. Already knew about that one (thank you so very much indeedy).
I find it absolutely wonderful (in a not wonderful at all sort of way) that the 1st edition 1611 King James Bible is still readable while you've got to jump through hoops to access something less than 10 years old.
Although, to be fair, reading the original 1611 KJV is not without its difficulties...
