Thread: Iomega Zip Tools for DOS, WFW311, Win95

  1. #1

    Default Iomega Zip Tools for DOS, WFW311, Win95

    On my usual weekly trip to my local used store a couple days ago I found some Zip-100 discs for 10 cents each and grabbed em anyway, cheap and useful to have (My pentium3 machine has a Zip-100 drive). Turned out that with one disc I got more than I bargained for: The original old Zip Tools software.

    I have.. Iomega Zip Tools for MS-DOS, Windows 3.11, and Windows 95.

    I've scanned this software for viruses with AVG 2012, and Avast! Pro 5.xx, none found.

    Edit: I went and got it off the disc today and realized it's 22mb, so I went ahead and put it on my web server.

    I love my ZIP drives, have two USB ones, and a bakers dozen of LPT1: versions.. (like 5, 6, or 7..)..

    I love being able to dump stuff into my old computers quickly, and back again.

    Yeah parallel drives were slow but a damn nice solution to copy files off older x86 systems.

    The read-me files talk about Jaz drives, but not Zip drives. Have you tried these with a Zip drive yet?

    IIRC the guest utility will work with both Jaz and Zip drives (depending on the version).

    Yes, I've used them with an IDE/EIDE Zip-100 drive in Win98 on my Pentium3, they worked good for it. I haven't tried the dos/WFW311 side though.

    Saw a bunch of ZIP 250 drives at the landfill recycle shop the other day - bought a USB one for $1. Previously bought a parallell ZIP 100 for $3. Useful software vector between old systems. Have a SCSI ZIP100 for old Macs as well.

    I have to ask why in the name of.. everything, you decided to dig up and respond to a 3-year-old thread?

    I mean, I appericate your thanks, but.. still. This is called "Necro'ing" in the internet forums, and in general is a pretty bad thing to do. I meant, it's not some rule or anything. Just in general, doing this in any forum website is considered bad internet etiquette and usually frowned upon.

    However, yes, I do maintain the web server and continue to keep the file both hosted and in the correct location for this thread, and should still be available for everyone. I still see downloads from it a few times per month in my web server logs too.

    Your V-C post from February 2012 was returned in a Google search for "Iomega Tools". I have several ZIP 100 drives and a Bernoulli, and I was looking for a way to create a bootable zip drive; none of my disks had the tool suite on them. I followed the link, found and downloaded the contents, and since I was already logged in to the forum, posted my thanks for maintaining the link.

    Sorry if I offended anyone by bringing up an old topic. Hope you feel better soon.
