All Zip disks are pre-formatted, protected by a rigid plastic shell, and offer shirt-pocket convenience. Zip disks are durable and can easily shrug off the bangs, bumps and scratches that can ruin CD-R and CD-RW discs. And, because Zip disks are inherently rewritable, users don't have to stock one type of disk for write-once operations and another type for rewritable operations. The same Zip disk does it all with superior rewritable performance and durability.

The IOMEGA ZIP 100 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 100 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 100 MB ZIP disks can be read and written by a 250 MB disk drive. These disks use the FAT16 format so only 151 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'. 2) Select the Iomega tab (after support was installed). 3) Select `Diagnostics', then `Close' after the green light. 4) Select `More Info' on the `Disk Type' Note the `Disk Life Status' and the `Format Life Status'. Percentages lower than about 85% are not good. 5) A `Long Format' can improve the Life Status statistics.
While this applies to my PC computer, you can use Mac formatted disks once you reformat them.
