    I can take away from this discussion and the private messages that both boards function as advertised. Once I have the opportunity to start this project I am leaning toward buying both boards...

    So if I understand correctly, there are two main objectives in trying to copy a copy protected floppy.

    (1) The first is to make an exact duplicate of the disk on another floppy. This means you...
  4. Making Backups of IBM Formatted Copy Protected Floppies

    Hi Guys,
    I know this topic has floated about for many years and in many threads. All of those threads, while interesting, eventually go way over my head. I don't need to consider any formats...

    I hope I didn't get bad ones. I recently purchased 5 new/sealed Syquest drives and a dozen new internal Zip 100 IDE drives. That's in addition to a few new external Zip 100 and 250, along with the...
  6. Vampires vs. Zombies - Replaying Level 15

    Hi Guys,
    I guess this is not considered a vintage game, but it is old enough where there are no active forums. If you have never played this game, it has absolutely no instructions. So if it...

    Zip and Syquest Quality Concerns

    I recently purchased some Zip drives and cartridges, as well as a couple Syquest Sparq drives and cartridges. After reading some information on both of these devices, I see there have been quality...

    Sorry, I should have mentioned it is an IDE device. I do not have it yet so I have to wait to see if the Zip 250 software works.

    Thanks...Joe

    Internal Zip 750

    Hi Guys,
    I am waiting for the delivery of an internal Zip 750 drive and also recently purchased some internal Zip 100 drives. Both come with no software, just the hardware. I have drivers for...

    Just as an FYI. After removing the Zip drive and enabling the secondary slave CD drive (actually, it is a DVD drive) the machine boots without looking for the Zip drive. I then reconnected the Zip...

    I can tell you one thing. When the ZIP drive was connected, it took a LOT longer for the PC to boot up. At first I thought the system was hung but the boot process eventually finished. ...
  12. I did disconnect the ZIP drive and restart the...

    I did disconnect the ZIP drive and restart the computer. I went into the BIOS and enabled the secondary IDE slave back to CDROM and the machine booted normally with both CDROMs identified and...

    I got it working and it is what I thought the problem might be.

    First I tried setting the parallel port to both "Bi-Dir" and then "ECP/EPP" and neither caused the Zip drive to load; I still got...
  14. I don't think I would have a problem if it were...

    I don't think I would have a problem if it were an internal drive as it would clearly need to be attached to one of the IDE channels..

    I'm thinking an external Zip 100 and external Zip 250 set...

    Question...is the external Zip 100 drive on a machine with two devices already on the secondary IDE channel?

    Although I do not have an internal ZIP drive, it seems they get set up like any other...

    I am out of my league here, but could the 250mg drives be trying to use the same resources as the secondary IDE slave and therefore causing a conflict which cannot be resolved during the boot process?
  17. I have an external Zip 100 drive connected to a...

    I have an external Zip 100 drive connected to a 486 running DOS. I configured it years ago and never used it after installing. I went back today to take a quick look at the README file. There is a...

    One thing I did not mention is this is a 250mg Zip drive, so it requires Win95 at a minimum. The model number is Z250P. 100mg Zip drives can be used under DOS.

    I am using installation software...

    I got a chance today to look through the online manual that came with the drive. Unfortunately, the manual is only for an internal Zip drive and never mentions anything about parallel Zip drives. ...

    I will have to check on how the parallel port on this PC is configured. This is not a SCSI device and it has the pass through for a printer.

    One thing to further mention...once the boot process...

    I did not try removing one or two of the CDROMs because I didn't want to open the case right now and get into a long drawn out dissection of the PC. I haven't installed it in another machine yet...
  22. External Parallel Port Zip Drive ATAPI Error

    Hi Guys,
    I just purchased an external parallel Zip drive. After installing the software I connected the Zip drive and restarted the computer. During the boot process when the IDE devices are...

    Okay...It's working now but why it's working remains a mystery.

    Here's what I did. The machine has three DIMM slots and two identical 512mb PC2700 DIMMs (even manufactured the same week)...

    It seemed to make sense because CPU-Z is freezing when it appears to be gathering info on the processor.
