    I have an Iomega 750 zip drive. I have a disk that has become so corrupted that my system will no longer recognize it. This disk is physically all right. I have already lost on the data on it and I don't won't to loose the $15.00 disk too. How do you force a format on this disk so that I can at least save the disk?

    Thanks,
    Tom Carter

    you should be able to format the disk by opening "My Computer" and "Right-Clicking" on the Zip Drive with the disk in it and choose FORMAT from the menu.

    Sorry to hear about your problem there. That 'clikc of death' is the number 1 reason why i refuse to use my zip drive anymore. I had a similar prob happen to me and since then i have completely switched over to CD-Rs.
