Customer Question

I have an old IBM SYStem2 with DOS 3.3 and attached to a Bernoulli A220H drive to try and get data stored back in the late 80's and 90's. Can you run a ZIP 100 with a printer cable on it and then go to an XP system and transfer the data. Or can you put a SCSI JAZ drive in both?

Hi Dale,

You cannot connect a Zip drive to a printer port.

If you have a Zip disk you can use a USB Zip drive or a USB parallel port adapter to access it.

You can connect the SCSI Jaz drive if you have the correct SCSI interface and drivers installed.
