View Full Version : Zip Disk Question

01-03-2001, 12:02 PM
I have an Iomega Zip Plus that I use to copy files between a PC and Mac.
The format of some of the disks is PC Exchange MS-DOS. When I open the disk on my Mac, the files jump around and cannot be copied or opened.
What are my options?

depends on the file types. If you have applications which can open the types of files that you are transferring, the Mac should open them.

I have no idea what you mean when you say files "jump around." If your Mac is correctly configured, most PC files can be handled. Graphic Converter, for example, handles virtually all graphics file types. MS Office opens most others. If you are trying to open .exe files, you need VirtualPC, and possibly a PC application running in the emulation layer, again depending on the type of file.

These are Mac files I save on a DOS formatted zip disk. I wish I could explain it better. I can't click on the file and drag it to the desktop or open it. I use the ZIP disk for both PC and Mac files.
