Customer Question
Hi Trying to connect...

Hi Trying to connect iomega*****to my MAC (OS Sierra ). Is this possible. I have the usb-zip drive connected. Cant find drivers that download.... they only want to download advertisements for other software, not iomega 100

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the model of your Mac, and what operating system are you running?

OS Sierra MAC 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

It is up to date. Nothing in the last few weeks. Know there is a new os coming out soon

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Just the question: 1. is it possible to connect iomega 100 zip to MAC. And if so... where is a download for the application...

Yes this is possible - the USB drivers are universal do you do not need to install anything.

Are you connecting to a USB2 .0 or USB3.0 port?

Can you try connecting to a different port or test the zip drive on a different Mac?
