Question about Iomega 750GB Esata/usb 2.0 750 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Imega 750 Zip drive disk stuck in the drive. Next to the power connection there is a slot but it dose not allow me to release the disk. The 5v transformer may not be working I do not get a light when I push the release button. I don't have anyway to check the transformer. If all else fails I could try a quick short of the transformer not recomended I guess but at least I will know if the source is hot.

How to eject a disk from a slot drive, when you've tried everything else


This is about trying to eject a CD or DVD stuck in a slot drive.
Most computers have a drawer-based cd drive which rarely suffers from disk jams.

Some high end PCs (and nearly all Macs) have slot drives where you feed the disk into a slot, the disk is then pulled into the machine. This gives better structural strength to the case, looks neater etc etc...

The problem is that occasionally a disk will get stuck. and there’s no little release hole on the front to push a paperclip in. There is lots of advice on the internet for the Macs, the Wii, and Pioneer drives of varying types, and most of these advise OS tricks, or firmware commands, however this trick is for when all those methods have been tried, and the disk is still trapped in the machine.

The idea is to stop the disk spinning and fool the drive into thinking the CD is bad, and it will eject it. I was taught this trick by a retired engineer, and it works a treat.

Fold a piece of cardboard (I used the side of a Frosties box) lengthways twice, until it’s quite stiff... Carefully push it into the slot until it bumps up against the edge of the CD/DVD.

Start the machine, and push the cardboard firmly against the disk to prevent it spinning. Wait for the regurgitating noises, and remove the cardboard to allow the disk to be ejected.

Easy.

How can i eject a disk that my computer is not seeing


Look for the actual ZIP drive and just below the slot to place the disk is a very small hole. Take a paperclip and push it into the hole applying pressure. This is the disk manual release.

Zip drive does not eject the disk and will not power up.


To the left of the Eject Button/Activity Light is a Disk Eject Hole. It will be a very small hole big enough for you to straighten out a paperclip and push in to hit the eject the disk

Iomega zip port


First of all, make certain you are only using 100 MB disks in a 100 MB reader.

If the problem is more complex than that, I have several questions:

Can you read different disks?

what type of connection is the zip drive using with the computer? USB?

does the zip drive need an external power supply?

will the zip drive successfullly read disks when connected to a different computer?

does the zip drive appear under my computer at all? even as an empty drive?

what operating system are you using?
