    Jaz drive

    Hi All

    Does anybody here have a Jaz drive still?

    I have been asked to try and transfer some data (not valuable stuff) from a 1Gb Jaz disk onto a memory stick.

    I don't really want to buy a drive just for this so I was wondering if anyone had a drive I could borrow?

    Thanks

    36 minutes might not be a very long time to allow 10k people to have a look at your post

    I thought I did have, but it is a ZIP. Anyone need a SCSI Zip drive?

    TBH i'd be willing to wager the data isn't readable anyway even if you do get your hands on a Jaz drive.

    They barely lasted 10 minutes let alone 10 years

    Iomega Jaz Drive 1GB Complete With Carry Case & Cables on eBay, also, Other Drives Storage, Drives Storage, Computing (end time 29-Mar-09 20:41:47 BST)

    charge it to the guy who wants the data, Iwould add another 25 to see if he really wants the data, my guess is they do not.

    I *think* I've got one at home in an old machine (stocked it out with DDS2, Jazz, Zip, HP Tapestore piece of junk) ... I'd have to check if it still works though, it's been sitting under a pile of computer bits for quite some time...

    I know where I can possibly get a 2gb scsi Jazz drive from although the machines may have been thrown out(p2 350's) by now. Will check this weekend.

    Yours for the cost of the postage.

    Probably be about a 5?
