Copying files to an external 2mb Jazz on my 300Mhz PPC is VERY slow occasionally, the mouse pointer is frozen as well. I am running system 8.1.

Hi, jbach.

Two possibilities. On the back of the Jaz drive there should a switch that activates termination of this SCSI drive. If drives aren't terminated properly, they can create odd behavior. Make sure that switch is terminated if the Jaz is the only item connected to your Mac's SCSI port. If the Jaz isn't the last item, make sure that the last item has a proper terminator.

Another possibility involves the condition of your drives and the version of the Iomega software you are using. Make sure that you're using the latest Jaz software; you can get a copy from www.iomega.com. Also, check some basic Mac settings. Click the Set Defaults button in the Memory control panel to ensure that your Mac works at its best in terms of speed. This turns virtual memory on, so if you use RAM Doubler or Photoshop, be sure to turn it off again.

If neither suggestion works, try running Disk First Aid (in your Utilities folder) to correct any minor problems on your hard disk, or try Norton Utilities 4.0 to help. Also try a rebuild of the desktop by holding down the Command and Option keys at startup with the Jaz disk inserted in the drive. You'll get to rebuild both your startup and Jaz drive. Good luck. --KS
