What is going on here?

By unclegarbage ·
My zip drive will not reconize any disks' that I insert into the drive. It pops up a diolog box saying please insert disk into drive. I just installed a replacement zip dirve and it keeps doing the same thing. Please insert disk into the drive. I have tryed more than one disk too. I have updated the drivers, I have check the EDIE and power cables too. I am lost at this point. Any information would be great. I am using windows 2000 pro and windows 98, it will do it on both sides of the operatingsystems.

You are using formatted zip disks right, not just normal floppies?

What kind of zip drive is it?

If all is as you say, and the drive appears in My Computer and is assigned a drive letter, then it seems to me that you possible have a bad drive. You might try instaling it in another PC to confirm.

You are using the wrong size of zip disk in the drive :)

I have run into this problem on a couple of Win2kPro machines, and I have found that it occurs most often when the drive is plugged into the machine while it is up and running. The drive is immediately recognized in Explorer, but no disks seem to work, with the same symptoms you list. But, if I shut down and reboot while the drive is plugged in, it tends to clear the problem. Hope this works.
