If that happens, then copy v2. I cannot remember about the PP version, but the IDE one mentioned in another comment worked with early versions of Linux “out of the box”, no special driver installation. LPT1 is assigned to the port with the highest address, so setting the Zip’s port to use and the other port to use might be best. ILM files associated with it which are analogous to the mode settings in Win9x. View over of my fine art photos any time for free at DesktopScenes. However, some people have reported having printer-related problems after installing v2.

See here for more. If you find the IPPI listed, then you can select and install it. Otherwise, to connect your Raspberry Pi to the parallel Zip drive you’ll probably need to use the GPIO port, write your own drivers and maybe add some buffering circuits of some sort. But there’s no harm in trying, so give iomeag a shot. I haven’t followed the evolution of networking protocols well enough to know which protocols would be supported by both old new equipment, but I think there were PC implementations of NFS which should allow the old system to behave as a file server the new system could access.

Choosing the wrong settings for your system might result in anything from the drive not being recognized to data corruption; so intwrface careful with these. Ok, thanks, but I don’t think the situation is quite this desparate yet.

And be aware that the drivers for a device can interfere with a Zip drive’s operation even when that device is not physically connected.

If your Zip drive is interfzce connected to LPT1, this may not work, and it doesn’t always come up with the optimal settings anyway.


Disconnect, Sync data transfer, and Removable should be checked there. So it seems to make more sense to use the SCSI bus directly? EXE program attempts to find the optimal settings for your system, but they can also be set manually.

Chaining anything other than a printer to a Zip drive is generally not a good idea although some people have reported that they’ve been able to do so successfully. Also, if you have more than one parallel port in the system, the installation may go more smoothly if the Zip is connected to LPT1.

Connecting the drive is easy, a parallel port is easy to add. Sign up using Facebook.

ILM files associated with it which are analogous to the mode settings in Win9x. It just came with one cable that auto-sensed and it also worked fine on an A equipped with a SCSI controller.

See these Microsoft Knowledge Base articles for more info:. If that happens, then copy v2. If you find that it has been checked again, then don’t worry about it. Note that this may preclude printing files directly from the Zip disk; they must first be fully loaded into RAM or copied to the HD.

I cannot remember about the PP version, but the IDE one mentioned in another comment worked with early versions of Linux “out of the box”, no special driver installation. I know very little about SCSI, but the text on the wiki page seems to say those buffering circuits are for “connecting other external devices”, which I do not need to do. If drivers exist to connect old hardware up to new computers, that may be more convenient than using an old system as a server.


If the Iomega software installation can’t find your drive or if you don’t want to install the softwareyou can install the IPPI manually.

You could also power up the drive just after turning the computer on – before the OS begins loading. Versions earlier than 2.

If you don’t find it listed, then use the Have Disk button to browse to an appropriate. So I thought I should include what information I can on them here. The Iomega document that addressed these “disappeared” when they reorganized their website and it wasn’t up-to-date anyway. It probably isn’t the best approach in the OP’s situation, but it’s often helpful to know that a workable fallback plan will exist even if there’s no way to iomeba drivers working on newer hardware.
