    I recently bought a couple of Jazz discs but I had forgotten about the formatting. Is there anyway I can reformat these 1mg Jazz PC discs to Mac format?
    Thanks!!

    Do you have Iomega Tools? A new Macintosh format Jazz disks should have a copy. Alternately Iomega.com had Iomega Tools for free download last time I checked.

    One of the tricks we used to use with IBM format ZIP disks was to boot with the disk in the drive. The MacOS would load SCSI driver before the Iomega extension would load, so the Finder could reformat the disks.

    Go to ATTO www.attotech.com / downloads / utilities and use ExpressTools Pro.

    IF you're running Mac OS 9.x.x, you could just make sure that the File Exchange Control Panel (and related Extensions, which I don't know off the top of my head) is on, I know that I've used PC Zip 100 disc's for this, but I'd assumed it'd work on Jaz drives as well.
