Though I hear people complaining that Zip disks are corruptable and break easily, I've never had a problem with them. I'm a student and I've used Zip disks since high school and never once have they gone bad on me. I've used them to store simple Word files to large computer-generated images and I find them a convieniant way to store big amounts information you don't want eating up valuable space on your hard drive. CDs may be cheaper to buy, but with a CD-R once you put information on, you can't edit what's on the disk, and CD-RWs are a tad bit more expensive, plus CDs scratch more easily and one bad drop onto a kitchen floor can crack them if you're not careful. I think ZIP disks are the best way to go.

I can't begin to tell you how many 3 1/2 x 5 floppy disks I have gone through. Too many times where I had a big project and I couldn't save it on one disk. My high school Spanish 4 final exam project was on 5 small floppy disks!! 5! I started using a zip drive and it was so much easier. As well as I don't have to worry about it not fitting because I have 250MB to work with instead of 1.44MB.
I did get a new computer and had a CD-RW drive installed on it. That was going to be my new way out but Fitchburg State College computers only have CD-ROMs so that was no help. I'm glad I still have my zip drive since now I use it more than ever.
A word of advice if you are buying a new zip drive. Get a USB capable zip drive. Stay away from the parallel port model. That one was a piece of junk. If you want to save wire space Iomega made a USB-powered model as well.

I've use zip disks for about a year now. Have to admit that at least i haven't had to worry about scratching them up like CDs but they're not all that dependable when transferring from computer to computer. The only reason i really used them was because I had to for my multimedia class in college. They only equipt a few of their computers with CD Burners and most have Zip Drives. Out of the 5 zip disks i used, 2 of them had problems which have caused me to spend extra time redoing corrupt files for class. While they work pretty well if u want to be able to carry some files around with you in your pocket or just toss it in your backpack, i dont recommend using zips to transfer your work between many computers such as for computer labs. USB ThumbDrives for me. They are solid state, fast, and dont corrupt as easily if at all.

I was introduced to zip discs when taking some computer classes about 5 years ago. At the time, I didn't even HAVE a CD burner, but found a deal on a zip drive. They are basically beefed-up floppies, and as most of the things I need to back up are documents in progess, it's easy to regularly copy items over to a zip disc. I've been using the same three for several years and have never had a problem, and I always recommend them to friends, but it does seem that CDs and now DVDs are more popular. DVDs may have more space but for text or html docs that need frequent editing, zips are much better suited for my needs.

IOMEGA ZIP 250 Disk

The IOMEGA ZIP 250 disk is a high-capacity removable storage disk that is about the size of a standard 3.5" floppy disk. It can be read and written by an internal IDE drive (only one per system) or an external drive connected to a USB port or a parallel port (slowest in access). The IomegaWare Software provides utility functions designed for the ZIP disk, such as formatting or copying a disk. You should never use the Operating System disk copy function. Use the EJECT utility to remove a disk from a drive; this is required in Windows NT or Windows 2000. Remove the disk before turning a computer off You should never insert a ZIP disk in the drive when the computer is on as this can cause damage. Normally, shutting down the computer causes the disk to eject. If you lose power, you must disconnect power to the computer, open its cover, and push a straightened paper clip into the Emergency Eject Hole.

The IomegaWare software tests for the presence of the ZIP drive. It should be used in Windows 2000 to format a ZIP disk in the FAT format. Removable disks can contain a lot of data when it can be partitioned into 250 MB segments. The data on a ZIP drive can be read and written by different versions of an Operating System (using the FAT format). Rewriting reuses space, it does not increase the used space. ZIP drives, like floppies, should not be exposed to magnetic fields or high heat (sunshine). The 250 MB ZIP disks can be read and written by a 750 MB drive. These disks use the FAT16 format so only 129 entries are allowed in its root directory. Files should be stored in folders to best use space. This also applies to memory sticks (unless they use the FAT32 format).

To test the status of a used ZIP disk. 1) Right click on the drive, select `Properties'.

Really weird. I bought a USB 250MB disk drive kit because the school computers have zip drives. I've been using the same two 250 MB disks for about 2 years now, and they've worked fine. I used it to transfer files between school (WinXP) and my home computer (Linux).

I think CDS are great for backups, but not for file transfers. Even CDRWs aren't good for that since you have to copy all the files to your PC, blank the disk, and write the files back to update the disk. Sure we have those UDF formatted CDRWs that work like any other storage device, but THAT is unrealiable, and WinXP doesn't even support it by default.

Memory sticks, hmm, they are compact, but they use EEPROM, which means that you are limited in the number of times a memory location can be erased. CDRWs suffer from a similar erase limit, but I've had the same CDRWs for many years, and they still work.

I think the zip 250 disks are great, though I wish they were a bit cheaper.
