I went to the download wizard ( ) out of curiousity and selected 'zip plus' then 'macintosh 7.5-8.5' then 'english' and guess what? NO RESULTS!

jeeze...any grand thoughts on where to find the basic softwares downloads ('Guest' being important) to mount and use these drives for system 7.0 to 7.6?

for my powerbook I'm thinking of only having Guest alone for starters anyhow

You can format, read and write to zip from the OS with newer versions of MacOS. Just format it like any floppy/hard drive with the usual Mac utilities.

Iomega tools came with certain versions of Mac OS on the Install CD. If you have a CD for System7.5/8x look for it on there and on Boxed versions of MacOS.

If you are using System7.1 you can upgrade to 7.5 or better, or download Iomega Zip Tools version 5.0.3 (or whatever Iomega recommends now). This is from MIT's Mac application super-archive, and if you're working with older Macs you probably need to know about it; it's the first place to look for older Mac Software that may be pulled from sites by now. The root archive is here.

The Guest program used to be on all pre-formatted zip disks, and the first zip disks came with a floppy for basic installation of the tools, with the remainder on the zip disk itself.

To manage problems with Iomega software, check out the extension conflict guide and workarounds here.

hmm thanks very much gordguide --- I looked at the 'root archive' link and found the download for this

I'll have to try it when I work on my mac's again later. cheers


p.s=I used to have guest.exe on a disk to share my zip drive with some friend's computer some long time ago without having to even install one piece of thing to his hd. thats what got to be great about the Guest tool itself...hehe [img]smile.gif[/img]
