A Big Minus for ZipPlus

Send Article to a Friend

A Big Minus for ZipPlus -- Iomega recently revised the compatibility guidelines for the ZipPlus drive, and these guidelines suggest that Iomega either dropped the ball when testing the drive or has a blatant disregard for reality. The ZipPlus can detect whether the drive is connected to a SCSI or parallel port using a special blue AutoDetect cable. Failure to use that cable, use of "any cable converter or gender changer," or use in a multiple-device SCSI chain, could cause system incompatibilities and data loss. Iomega also specifies that the ZipPlus not be used with any PowerBook, regardless of the cable. What's next, a requirement that users store the ZipPlus in a cool, dark place away from loud noises? We hope Iomega will provide a technical solution to these problems quickly. [JLC]
