Perhaps I missed something, but I doubt that you'd be purchasing a 750 mg Zip drive. They just came out and are rather expensive still. Otherwise you can still read and write to a 100 mg zip disk. However I still don't understand why people use zip drives now. Given the cost of media, it is still much cheaper to mulitsession on a cd-r than purchase a zip media.

I'm with Elainem on this one if you couldn't tell by my earlier posts I don't understand why anyone would backup to zip disks when cd-r only cost 50 cents and a 100 meg zip disk costs anywherw from $15-25 (in Australia)the performance differnece would have to be huge It's been my experience that cds and the newer range of burners are just as reliable as zip disks
