I still use two built in 100MB zip drives. I had to discard an Iomega external CD drive that conked out and Iomega wouldn't repair it, probably because it came with poor instructions so I never was able to figure it out. Like the diskette technology, the Zip disks would only open inside the drive so dust was kept to a minimum. I never use an off-brand disk. Now with low cost 2GB flash memories, I seldom use the Zip drives. -----Original Message----- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Click_of_death Justin F.
