I purchased an external Zip drive unit, which connects through the parallel port on my computer. It seemed to install without a hitch, and I was able to drag and drop files to the disk without incident.
The unit will not let me store some .doc files from Word 7. These appear to be files which have a bitmap inserted onto the text page. I don't know if this is the reason for the problem, or if it is totally unrelated.
It definitely is frustrating not knowing what files will and will not load unto the drive. Has anyone had a similar problem, or any suggestions? Thanks!
