Iomega ZIP CD 650 USB

This external CD-RW 4x4x6 writer was one of the first drives to use a USB connection. It is relatively slower than newer models. It uses a proprietary power connection that resembles a PS/2 connector to deliver 5 and 12 volts to the purple and black container. The "USB Guidelines" suggest performance is improved by not using other USB devices. Using a USB cable other than what came with the drive may cause data loss. Only one ZIP CD USB drive may be used on one computer. Do not use a USB extension cable. The manual recommends using the Adaptec Easy CD Creator instead of Direct CD for a higher degree of data reliability. Other Iomega products (ZIP, Clik!, or Jaz drives) provide higher data reliability. There are suggestions for trouble-shooting USB problems, such as non-compliant USB controller chips, cables, hubs, and peripherals. Refer to the User's Manual on the CD.

This is useful for older computers (Pentium 100 or higher) with a built-in USB controller with Windows 98SE. You can save or transfer a lot of files on one CD.

I have a group of friends that have this unit and it always seem to produce the best cd's -- so I wanted one but it is no longer being built or sold but on Amazon I found it and ordered it -- I works as great as any of the other units -- the seller was great in getting back to me when a cable was not in the box.

Okay, a little reminder to look at all the specs for an item before buying. I'm looking for an old Iomega Zip Drive, like one I used as a backup a decade ago, but it developed the click of doom. I suppose I'll try hooking this CD RW to my CD-less laptop, but minus points to the *#@! company for the name.
