The problem: My known-good Iomega parallel Zip 100 is not seen. I should see a drive letter mapped to this device. This doesn't happen on this PC.
Windows XP - Pro
I have called Iomega and they told me
- Make sure the Iomega Zip drive parallel is turned on when turning on my computer. Did not solve the problem
I read Iomega's troubleshooting document on this topic ... (please read)
When I get to Step 3 of those instructions, I see this...
If there is no SCSI controller listed within the Device Manager or if the Iomega Parallel Port Interface driver is not listed under the SCSI controller, you will need to install the IomegaWare software. Please continue with the next step.
Well there IS no SCSI controller listed.
Also, when I look at Ports (COM & LPT) under Device Manager, I see only
Communications Port (LPT1) and
ECP Printer Port (LPT1)
I did (re)install the software - did not solve the problem.
Finally, the drive is NOT a SCSI drive (see link above) - nonetheless, I think it's supposed to show up for Iomega as a SCSI. Not sure. Thanks.
My guess about what is going... I was having issues with my Epson printer (which is on another PC on my network). (If I remember correctly) Epson support had me do things to Ports in Device Manager. Therefore, I'm guessing the problem is with the parallel port. I'm further guessing that NO device connected to my parallel port would work - just a guess.
