Make sure you reformat the Zip disks before you use them the first time. Originally they are formatted for a PC. Use the tools as mentioned above and perform a format.

If you run Norton Disk Doctor to check the files, it will always come up with tree errors. You can ignore these as long as you rebuild the zip disks desktop folder once and a while (press and hold the option + command (apple) keys while you insert the disk. It will ask you if you want to rebuild the desktop. Select OK

HI....
What do you mean "corrupted"?
Have you installed the zip tools from iomega? from........
http://www.iomega.com/software
and try "erase with surface verify" takes about 8 minutes, If your zips are dodgy then
this will tell you so.
You could also try these zip discs on another machine.
What happens when you run Norton Disk Doctor on the zip discs?
Is this an external zip drive or a built in one? If it is external is it terminated properly?
regards
