I have just fit to my PC an internal eide zip drive.
Both my two new, suposedly blank,100Mb zip discs seem to have already on them the same two files --- "50zip.exe"  and "50mz".  What are they there for, someone ?  Discs are labelled "iomega zip 100" Dan.

These files are included on the media as a form of advertisement. you may run the .EXE file and view the advertisement. My zip disks all have some sort of advertisement for iomega on them. They may be erased with no problems
