Hi,
Got several iomega 100mb discs that I use for storage and suddenly some won't work. They have my collection of photos on them.
I have a desk top with a built in drive and a lap top with an external drive that plugs into a USB port. Same results on both. When I try to open the discs I get a message to insert disc.
Have I lost the contents for good?

You could try sacndisk and point it at the zip drive. Although it maybe an idea first to go here http://grc.com/freepopular.htm and download the program Trouble in Paradise (TIP).

Thanks Pheonix.
I think that website answered my questions nicely.
I down loaded the tester but can't make it work even with a good disc in the slot. It says no iomega drive and what I imagine is the start button has only a row of dots. Tried reloading but with the same results.
I think it will be external drive so have warned a couple of mates that have the same system.
I will try the download again later.
