Thank you for the question. Can you please tell me what kind of drive you are looking for? Do you have a specific model number you are looking for?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

presently have a lot of programs backed up on an I-Omega - Zip100


Model #Z10052. Need new one. Have programs loaded on my


new desktop MAC - 10.75. they show up on new MACs screen


as file ? but won't open

Expert:  Techie_Ben replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the reply. You can use a Zip 250 which can read both 100MB and 250MB disks. You can purchase the drive from Amazon using the link below:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0000300QN

One thing I'd suggest first however is determining whether the disk itself is bad, or the drive. You can test that by either trying to read the same disk with another drive. If it works, then the drive you have is likely damaged. Or if you have another disk that you can use without any issues, then the disk you have just may be damaged.

you still didn't com;pletely,answer my question. Will these discs from


the old computer convert to the new mac osx 10.75 and why won't


them programs loaded on to he new computer open even thjoguh


tghere's an icon showing kon the screen. thanks for your help.

Expert:  Techie_Ben replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for the reply. The disks from the old machine should be readable by the OSX 10.7 machine, however many of the older programs are not compatible with 10.7, and need to should be installed on the new machine rather than copied from a zip disk. You would need to copy the installation package (the .dmg file) to the new machine and run the installer in order to load the program on to 10.7. From there, it will tell you whether the program is compatible or not. If not, you should get a warning stating the program is not compatible. It sounds like you've just copied the application file from the old machine if the icons are showing, however you should be using the .dmg installation file instead.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
