I have a parallel zip drive that experienced all the problems of
installation that everyone else has been *ing about even under windows
95. After following some of your suggestions: Making sure the cable is
press in HARD, and downloading the current zip tools (see www.iomega.com)
my system no longer locked up when copying to/from the zip drive.
Unfortunately, I'm experiencing a less obvious problem. When I copy a zip
file either in Windows95 or at the DOS prompt(under windows) everything
seems to go hunky-dorey. When I copy it back, to another location, all
three copies have the same file size, dates, etc but when I try and unzip
the files I'm getting CRC errors on a number of files.
I did try to use WINZIP today instead of pkzip 2.04 but can't seem to get
WINZIP to copy the hidden and system files and empty directories.
Suggestions? I am definitely getting fed up with all the problems and
will be looking for some other means of back up.
