oops -- that is the system on my iMac -- the system on my notebook is10.13.3

Thank you. Iomega Zip drives are actually no longer compatible with OS X. To get the information off of the disks you will need to either connect them to an older computer (much older) or send the zip disks in to a data company that can recover the data and send it to you on newer media, such as a USB flash drive.

thanks for the info - that isn't the answer I was looking for but it's not your fault

Would you like me to send you the info for a data company?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

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
