Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.
Question, the Iomega drive you have. Does it use a USB cable, or a serial / parallel cable ?
It has a square connector, which is modern I believe. Did I answer that for you?
Square.. What size?
Does it match USb size.. Please try to be a bit more descriptive if you can. Thank you
Yes, it is definitely USB.
When you attack the drive to your computer and insert a disk into the drive.
What happens. Does it say unknown device attached?
Also, after you attach the drive if you go to the device manager do you see any unknown devices or devices with warning marks showing.
Please press the windows key on your keyboard , hold it down, and press ROnscreen should be a box that says Open / Run . In that box type in,devmgmt.msc and then hit enter.Now, inside the device manager windows that shows up, were looking for any device that says unknown or unrecognized device, and it may have a yellow warning mark next to it. If you see any of those devices, let me know what they are labeled as and what category they fall under.
All Drivers are installed correctly, the issue is the software to operate the iomega drive
Thats the issue. Iomegaware isnt compatible or workable on windows 7 ..
Unless the drives are password ***** You should still be able to use windows explorer, open the drives. and copy all files to your pc so you can work with them.
Do you see the drive listed if you click start, computer. Is it showing as a removable drive underneath your C drive?
That really doesn't help me so can I have a $31 credit. Thanks for trying, but I think Microsoft made some changes to make the zip not work anymore.
Zip drives stopped being supported in the early 2000's. Ive worked with these on modern computers and can help.
If you change your mind and want to continue, let me know.
Yes, if you can get this to work on my Windows 7 machine, but tell me if you can in a way I can implement your suggestions.
Is anyone going to continue to help me solve this problem?
