i have a n extern parallel ZIP100 drive, and, well it won't work. i don't have a printer connected to it.
i don't know much about the parallel port configuration in the BIOS (ECC, ECP, bi-dir, etc.), so maybe that's the problem.
i can't read the ZIP drive, but the iomega-utility tells me that everything is allright with my drive. i tried the ZIP disk oon other computers, and it worked.
system: win98, amd k6, 100mhz sockel 7 mainboard
