Transferring Data From A Zip Drive

by on April 14, 2008

Q: I have a zip drive disc that I want to get information off of and transfer it to a hard drive or flash drive. I don’t own a zip drive. How can I get this info off without having to buy a zip drive?

A: Unfortunately you are not going to be able to get the information off that drive without a zip drive to open the disk. The only suggestion would be to check your local library or a computer lab at your local community college that you could access but otherwise you will need to purchase a zip drive to transfer that. Without being able to insert the disk to get the data you won’t be able to transfer it. You will have to have equipment to read the disk.
