my Omega 100 Zip Drive has taken a doookie!!!!!
several people have suggested i have the dreaded Kiss of Death Zip drive disease, but i'm inclined to disagree with them. i have used this Zip drive intensively for the last year or so and have had no probs. UNTIL, the damnable day i downloaded WindowsMediaPlayer9(WMP9). i was unaware that the pc you use to download that software package must be the one you use to install it. the smart guys at Microsoft have set up some failsafe copywriteprotected encryption on their WMP9 downloadable install package. i was at work and d/led the software package and was intending to copy the install package to my ZIP(100omega) and BOOM!!!!! no more access. I can't format it. I cant scan it. nada!!!
well stupid me was thinxing that it was just full (the zip cartridge) and it just wouldn't fit, this was b4 i did the scan disc, format attempt, etc. so i took my only remaining formatted, clean, & empty cartridge and tried the same stupid task. well to no SUrprise.BOOM! same thing. now both cart. are useless. i don' thave anymore to see if a new one will work, but im going to gets some to make sure the drive isn't bad as well.
has anyone experienced or heard of such things ?
pleeez lemme know if ya did, and wat ya did to fix it . thanx
