I have an old Iomega Zip 100 with many disks of mainly photos that I want to transfer to a newer computer. The cable is a twenty five point intented to plug into the printer or computer where the printer would plug into. That was ok way back younder, but neither my printer nor any of my computers accommodate that cable. Is there a converter out there?
Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer, a paid global support site.

You will need a parallel (female) to usb converter.

Here is one on for you:

You should be able to connect it to your PC via USB port.

The other option is to get a Parallel PCI card and install it to your PC (if you have a desktop).

the adapter does not work. So, how does one transfer data from these old Zip Disks 100 to an XP. I now understand that windows 7 is not compatible with the driver/software used for the computer to find the drive. I have an XP that I can use. Before I purchase a Parallel PCI card, will that allow my XP using the download from Iomega to find the drive?
