Does anyone here know if a 2GB Jaz drive can use 1GB Jaz disks? I finally tested the one I got from a thrift store and it works, but all I can find online are 1GB disks.

Update/sidenote: I was reading a review of the Zip250 drive in the April 1999 issue of MacWorld. They generally liked the drive, but they did mention that using a Zip250 drive to manipulate 100MB media is slower by a measurable and perhaps noticeable amount (it was like 10 or 20%) than using a 100MB mechanism to do so.
If you have good working Zip100 drives and media, and you don't plan on migrating entirely to 250, then I only personally recommend getting and using a 250 in any primary capacity if you are utterly and direly desperate for a mechanism, and there are no 100s to be found anywhere.
Given that much less common drives can be had in spades on eBay, I'm guessing this isn't going to happen.
