    Another question about iOmega Zip 100 on Windows 10


    Like many who have written on the topic, we have data on Zip disks that we'd like to retrieve. Our hardware includes the following


    Zip 100 (Z100P2), manufacture date=11/2008, with parallel cable.

    Dell Vostro Notebook 7590, Windows 10 (64 bit)

    • 9th Generation Intel Core i7-9750H (12MB Cache, up to 4.5 GHz, 6 cores)
    • Windows 10 Pro (64bit)
    • 16GB, 1x16GB, DDR4, 2666MHz 370-AEEC - 1 -
    • 128GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive (Boot) + 1TB 5400 rpm 2.5" SATA Hard Drive (Storage)


    We're considering whether to buy a parallel to USB adapter or cable, but what I've read in the MS Community posts give me pause.


    Can anyone tell me, definitively, that our proposed configuration (i.e. Zip drive & cable to adapter to Dell notebook USB port) will work?


    Thanks.

    :)

    Iomega 100 zip drive with windows 10

    I have a similar problem. I have bought a used iomega zip 100 driver, trying to read some sold discs. Together I bought a parallel-to-USB adaptor so that the driver can be connected to by PC, running on Windows 10. However, the PC does not recognize the
    zip driver at all. I saw some community message suggesting an old Windows version might work with Zip drive. I got out an old Toshiba running Windows XP and conned the driver to it, same thing. The PC actually acknowledges the plug in of a Printer (probably
    the parallel cable). Is there a way to make the zip driver/parallel cable recognized by windows 10?

    Thanks.

    iOmega Zip 100 and Windows 10

    I am trying to help a friend retrieve some files from an iOmega Zip 100 drive Model Z100P2 with his Windows 10 computer. He has a Rhino-Tec USB to Serial Parallel adaptor. Does anyone have a link to a set of drivers that will get this combination up
    and running, please?
