Question Zip Drives

sponsored links

 
Is there any difference between the internal Zip dives used in PCs and Macs? I've noticed the prices are much lower when looking through the PC auctions on eBay, and I'm considering buying one if the price it right.

Iomega drivers are built into my OS, so they won't need to be downloaded. Hopefully I'll get one for a reasonable price. I have a feeling that I'll pay more for the bezel than I will for the ZIP drive.

also you can use PC formatted zip disc on your Zip drive (mac) it will work just as well as a Mac formatted zip disc.
Note: PC formatted zip disc cost less than mac formatted disc

Just like floppies, they figure we're stupid and won't know the difference. DON'T underestimate the Mac user!!
