9 USB Guidelines USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an interface designed to make it easy to connect mice, keyboards, joysticks, printers, and other devices to your computer. Because of its ease of use, USB has recently become a means for connecting high speed storage devices, such as the Zip 250 drive. Follow these guidelines to ensure optimal and reliable performance of your Zip USB drive and other USB devices. You can... You can use your Zip USB drive on either a Mac with built-in USB or a Windows PC with built-in USB running Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0. (Some USB controllers or motherboards may not support all types of USB devices.) If you are using Windows 95 or NT 4.0, see Special Notes for Windows 95 and NT 4.0 Users. Mac, Windows 95 and 98 users You can connect or disconnect your Zip USB drive while the computer is on. CAUTION! Windows NT 4.0 users Always turn off the computer to connect or disconnect the Zip 250 drive. You can optimize your Zip USB drive's performance by disconnecting other USB devices when using your Zip drive. The performance of all USB devices decreases as additional USB devices are connected. You can ensure maximum performance by connecting your Zip USB drive directly to your computer instead of a hub or imac keyboard. You can improve the reliability of your Zip USB drive by unplugging and reconnecting the power supply after a system crash or hang. You can avoid some system lockups by waiting at least 30 seconds after connecting or disconnecting any USB device. (This allows the system to re-enumerate the USB bus.) Do not connect, disconnect or use any other USB device during this time. Do not...
10 Do not connect or disconnect any USB device while the Zip USB drive is transferring information data loss will result! NOTE: If the activity light is on, the Zip drive is transferring information. Wait to connect or disconnect any USB device until the activity light goes out and stays out. Do not use any USB cable with your Zip USB drive other than the cable that came with the drive. Never use USB extension cables with your Zip USB drive data loss may result. Do not disconnect your Zip USB drive or unplug power to the Zip USB drive while a Zip disk is inserted. Do not connect more than two Zip USB drives to a single computer. If you are running Windows NT 4.0, do NOT connect or disconnect the Zip drive while the computer is on. System lockups or data loss may result. Special Notes for Windows 95 and NT 4.0 Users Iomega software enables you to use Iomega USB devices on computers with a built-in USB connection running Windows 95 or NT 4.0. (Some USB controllers or motherboards may not support all types of USB devices.) Install Iomega software before you connect your Zip 250 drive. You can only connect two Iomega USB devices. USB hubs are not supported on systems running Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0. IMPORTANT If you are running Windows 95 or NT 4.0, once the Iomega software is installed, only Iomega devices are supported on the USB connections. Windows NT 4.0 users To prevent system lockups or data loss, do NOT connect or disconnect the Zip drive while the computer is on. Upgrading from Windows 95 to Windows 98 Upgrade to Windows 98 first, then insert the IomegaWare CD and reinstall IomegaWare software. See Installing IomegaWare Software for instructions.
11 Using Your Zip 250 Drive To use the Zip drive, insert a 250MB or 100MB* Zip disk, then select the Zip drive letter or disk icon on your computer. Store and copy files to and from the Zip drive using the same methods you use for other drives on your system. (If you need instructions on how to copy files, refer to the help files for your operating system.) The disk eject button will not eject a Zip disk that is mounted on the Mac Desktop. Use the standard procedures described in the Ejecting Zip Disk section below. Inserting Zip Disks When you insert a Zip disk, the *green activity light (also the eject button on a PC) on the Zip drive will flash momentarily then go out. (If the light continues to blink slowly, push the disk eject button to eject the Zip disk, then reinsert it.) CAUTION! Never put anything into your Zip drive except 250MB or 100MB Zip disks with the symbol shown below. Using disks that do not have this symbol may cause damage to your drive or loss of data.
12 Ejecting Zip Disks Mac OS Users Select the Zip disk icon and use Put Away from the File menu, or drag the disk icon to the Trash icon. Windows PC Users Push the disk eject button or use the eject feature in IomegaWare software. CAUTION! To avoid damage to your Zip drive or Zip disk, always remove the disk when it is not in use or before disconnecting or moving your Zip drive. Emergency Disk Eject in Case of Power Loss The Zip drive must be powered on for normal disk insertion and removal. If you need to eject a disk during a power failure, disconnect the power supply from the Zip drive and push a straightened paper clip into the emergency disk eject hole on the back of the drive. CAUTION! Never use the emergency eject procedure while the power supply is connected to the Zip drive. Never force a disk into or out of the Zip drive as this could damage the drive. Zip Drive Power When you shut down your system, you may want to disconnect power to the Zip drive; however, it will not harm the drive to leave it powered up. Disconnecting the power supply from the drive is an easy way to power down the Zip drive. If you disconnect power from the drive but leave the power supply plugged in, the power draw is less than 2 watts (less than half the power needed for a night light). If you prefer to power down completely, the easiest way is to plug the power supply into your computer's power strip and use the switch on the power strip to power down both the computer and your Zip drive.
13 Drive Sleep The Zip drive has an automatic sleep mode that spins down a Zip disk after 15 minutes of inactivity. This feature minimizes power consumption when the Zip drive is not being accessed. During drive sleep, the green power light remains on, and the Zip disk automatically spins up again when accessed. You can use IomegaWare software on a Windows PC or the Iomega Drive Options Control Panel on a Mac to change the drive sleep setting. Refer to IomegaWare help for additional information. top home next previous Copyright 1999 Iomega Corporation All rights reserved
14 Zip Tips Here are a few tips you'll want to keep in mind to care for your Zip drive and disks! Always make sure the power supply is connected to the drive before inserting a Zip disk. CAUTION If a disk is inserted without the power supply connected, and power is then applied, it could damage the drive. If you accidentally insert a disk when the power supply is not connected, eject it using the emergency disk eject procedure, then connect the power supply and reinsert the disk. Never force a Zip disk in or out of the drive. Never use ordinary 3.5" floppy diskettes or floppy headcleaning disks in your Zip drive. They will cause severe damage to the drive. CAUTION Never put anything into your Zip drive except genuine 250MB or 100MB Zip disks. Using disks that do not have these symbols may cause damage to your drive or loss of data: For best results, operate your Zip drive on a level surface when a Zip disk is inserted and in use. Avoid exposing the Zip drive and Zip disks to dust, direct sunlight, high temperature, moisture, or magnetic fields, such as from monitors and some speakers. Before disconnecting, shutting off the power, or moving your Zip drive, always remove the Zip disk. CAUTION Remove disks from the Zip 250 drive before disconnecting from the computer to avoid losing data. Disconnecting the Zip 250 drive from the computer while it is busy transferring data may cause damage or loss of data. When connecting your Zip 250 drive, use only the USB data cable that came with the drive. CAUTION Do not use USB extension cables with your Zip USB drive. Data loss may result. top home next previous
15 Using Zip Disks Use only genuine 250MB or 100MB* Zip disks with your Zip USB drive. This section describes some of the things you can do with Zip disks. The help files in IomegaWare software include additional information on using Zip disks. * 250MB or 100MB where 1MB=1 million bytes. The capacity reported by your operating system may vary. IMPORTANT! 250MB Zip disks do not work in the Zip 100 USB drive. Backing Up with Zip Disks It's important to always keep current backups of your valuable data whether the primary data is stored on your hard drive or Zip disks! You can use Zip disks to back up both. (See Copying Zip Disks for information on how to make backup copies of your Zip disks.) The easiest way to back up important data files stored on your hard drive is to use your system's standard procedures to copy them to your Zip drive. For example, if your operating system is Windows, you can use My Computer or Windows Explorer to select files or folders from your hard drive and drag-and drop them to your Zip drive. One advantage of copying files directly to your Zip drive is that you can access them easily any time you need them without having to run a restore procedure. Copying Zip Disks The simplest way to copy your Zip disks is with Iomega's Copy Machine application. Copy Machine will duplicate Zip disks using a single Zip drive. See Help in IomegaWare software for instructions on how to use Copy Machine. NOTE: Copy Machine cannot copy any files that are open or in use at the time the copy is made.
16 If you do not want to use Copy Machine, you can duplicate a Zip disk by following these steps: 1. Copy the contents of your Zip disk to a folder on your computer's hard drive (C:). 2. Eject your Zip disk. 3. Insert a new Zip disk. 4. Copy your files from the hard drive onto the new Zip disk. CAUTION! When copying Zip disks on a PC system, do NOT use the Microsoft CopyDisk utility that is available when you right mouse click on the Zip drive icon under Windows 98, or the DOS program DISKCOPY.EXE, which is included with Windows 98. These utilities only work correctly with floppy drives. Formatting Zip Disks Zip disks are available preformatted. You can format your Zip disks to quickly erase all of the files on the disk, change the format type (PC or Mac), or to repair a disk that has developed bad sectors. CAUTION! Formatting a disk erases all data on the disk. Do not format any disk that contains information you want to keep! Formatting Instructions for Mac OS Users 1. Insert the disk you want to format into your Zip drive. 2. Open the IomegaWare folder on your Mac hard disk, then open the Tools folder and double click the Tools icon. 3. In the main Tools window, click on the icon for the disk you want to erase. 4. Select the Erase Disk tool. 5. Choose Short Erase if you want to erase all data on a disk so you can reuse it; choose Long Erase if you are formatting a disk where you have forgotten the password. (Use either option to change the format type from PC to Mac.) 6. Click Erase to start formatting the Zip disk.
17 Formatting Instructions for Windows PC Users 1. Insert the disk you want to format into your Zip drive. 2. Right mouse click on the Zip drive icon (on your Windows Desktop or in My Computer). 3. Select Format from the drive shortcut menu. 4. Choose the format type: Use Short Format if you want to quickly erase all data on a disk so you can reuse it. Use Long Format if you are formatting a disk where you have forgotten the password, or if you need to repair a disk that has developed read/write errors due to bad sectors. Use either option to change the format type from Mac to PC. 5. Click Start to start formatting the Zip disk. Installing Applications to Zip Disks If you are using Mac OS, just run the install for the application and select the Zip disk as the target for installation. On a PC, some applications and games will only install to, or run from, a fixed disk. In order to install these programs to a Zip disk, use Make Nonremovable in IomegaWare software to make the Zip disk appear as a fixed disk to the system. After the software installation is complete, use the Make Removable feature to restore disk to removability. Note that you may need to use the Make Nonremovable feature whenever you run the program from your Zip disk. Read / Write Protecting Zip Disks IomegaWare software includes a special read/write protect feature that allows you to: Write Protect a disk through software instead of with a mechanical write protect switch. Write Protect a disk and assign a password so that no one can add, edit, or delete files without entering the password first.
18 Read/Write Protect a disk so that it cannot be read from, or written to, unless the user enters the password you assign. Setting Zip Disk Protection under Mac OS 1. Insert the disk you want to protect into your Zip drive. 2. Open the IomegaWare folder on your Mac hard disk, then open the Tools folder and double click the Tools icon. 3. In the main Tools window, click on the icon for the disk you want to protect (or unprotect). 4. Select the Disk Protection tool. 5. Choose the protection option you want to use. Click the Help button if you need information on any of the options. Setting Zip Disk Protection under Windows 1. Insert the disk you want to protect into your Zip drive. 2. Open My Computer and right mouse click on the Zip drive icon. 3. Select Protect from the drive shortcut menu. 4. Choose the protection option you want to use. Click the Help button if you need information on any of the options. NOTE: Although Zip disk protection options are set and removed using Iomega software, the actual protection mechanism is secured in the drive hardware. This means the disk protection cannot be by-passed using other software programs. Using Zip Disks Cross-Platform Mac OS and Windows PC systems use different disk formats. If you use your Zip drive on both PC and Mac systems, here are some important points you need to know: On Mac OS Systems You can use PC-formatted disks on a Mac OS system that has File Exchange 3.0 or higher or PC Exchange version 2.0 or higher installed. It is recommended that you use PC-formatted Zip disks for file transfer only.
19 You may lose file resource information if files you use on a Mac OS system are stored on a PC-formatted disk. You can change a PC-formatted disk to a Macformatted disk by using the Iomega Tools application on a Mac OS system to erase the disk. CAUTION! Formatting a disk erases all data on the disk. Do not format any disk that contains information you want to keep! Refer to the Iomega Software Manual (located inside the IomegaWare folder on your Mac hard disk) for additional information on using PC-formatted Zip disks with File Exchange or PC Exchange (and other DOS-mounting utilities). On PC Systems PC systems cannot read a Mac-formatted Zip disk unless special software is installed on the system. If you try to use a Mac-formatted Zip disk on a PC that does not have disk exchange software installed, you will see a message indicating that the disk is not formatted. You can change a Mac-formatted disk to a PCformatted disk by using IomegaWare software on a PC to erase the disk. (Observe the CAUTION above!) Transferring Files Between PC and Mac If you need to transfer files between a PC and a Mac, you can use a PC-formatted Zip disk if File Exchange 3.0 or higher or PC Exchange version 2.0 or higher is loaded on the Mac. You can use a Mac-formatted Zip disk if the PC has disk exchange software installed. NOTE: The Zip drive does not convert file formats. When using files cross-platform, the file format and application must work on both PC and Mac platforms. top home next previous Copyright 1999 Iomega Corporation All rights reserved
