Is it useable with a hub? Looked at a few sites & couldn't find anything out re this.
Also, how reliable are they now? I remember reading stories of failure's after a few days/weeks of use, or failing out of the box, while others would perform flawlessly for years (I know of a store in city where I live that the owner has his zip & laptop running 8 - 10 hours a day, and has done so for at least 3 years with no trouble).

Yes it should work with a hub... I haven't heard of a new ZIP drive being not reliable, but that is just me.

Zip Drives combines magnetic and optical storage technologies, Iomega has developed a 3.5" drive capable of storing up to 250MB on a singles disk. Over the years zip drives have proven reliable, inexpensive, and handy storage system..as far as being flawed, as with anything else, wherever man has his hands is capable of being flawed...thanks for warranties..

Thanks for the info re Zip drives. I have a CD burner, but was thinking of storing files I wasn't going to put on a cd, onto the Zip, but then got to thinking after I'd posted originally I could accomplish the same thing with a cd :eek:
Anyway, thanks for the info tho' Have query re mixed files on a cd I'll post later.
