You've probably heard about Zip-click death which is when a Zip drive starts making clicking sounds when a Zip drive is inserted and causes the OS to insist that the drive is write protected even when that is in error. Write protect on a Zip drive is accomplished via software and Zip-click death's onset is accompanied by a failure of the drive to respond to software commands. I've had a Zip drive do its death thing on me and it was immediately replaced by the supplier. My question is: do I pose a risk to the new drive by asking it to read Zip drives written by the Zip-click death bitten drive?
