My Power Macintosh G4 Sawtooth came with an internal Zip drive, but it doesn’t work. I installed IomegaWare under OS 9 and I could see the drive light up and make noise, but IomegaWare told me there was no disk. The disks I was using were NOS Fujifilm PC formatted Zip 100 disks. The front flap of the drive fell inside it at some point, but I was able to get that piece out. When I realized the drive wasn’t working, I disconnected the power and data cables from it. I intended to remove it, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it out, so I let it stay in there. I’m now wondering if I should attempt to fix this drive or if I should remove it? What do you guys think? I don’t own any other Zip disks or drives. Thanks in advance.
Have a IIcx with a SCSI2SD (v5) and a ROM-inator II. The Zip drive works just once after each power-up. Second boot seem to obstruct the SCSI2SD, leaving just the flashing-question-mark-disk on screen. Is this a termination problem? /k
I've got an Iomega Zip 100 drive connected to my Mac Classic through the external SCSI port (with a SCSI 5 ID), and it works just fine. However, I've just picked up a Zip 100 Plus drive and tried to connect that to my Mac Classic instead of the usual standard 100, and I am simply not getting any joy. What happens is that if the Plus is connected through the SCSI connector (the plus has a combined Parallel/SCSI port), even if the drive is not powered up, when the Mac starts up I just get the flashing question-mark in a disk telling me the system isnt behaving. I have tried the Plus using both SCSI 5 and 6 IDs, with the same response. I'm assuming there is something wrong with the termination here, but I'm a bit stumped. I've tried to do a reset on the plus, but the hole on the back of the case just seems to be a hole, there is no switch that I can reach with a paperclip. Is this just some sort of corrupted zip drive, or am I missing something simple? Cheers in advance Simon
