Customer Question
Have an Iomega ZIP...

Have an Iomega ZIP 100 drive and a start-up disk that appears to only work on the Mac Classic operating system. Is there any way to use it on OSX?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Mac?

Sierra 10.12.8 on my preferred computer. Do have an older Mac that still runs on Classic, but prefer the newer laptop.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Mac?

Yes, Pearl, it does work on the laptop that runs on Classic, but for a variety of reasons I'd rather use OSX!

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

No, thank you.
