Hi again. I was looking around the internet for an external hard disk for my mac plus when

I realized I just didn't have the money(that's how little cash I have). I'd heard of using

a zip 100 drive instead, so I looked on google. Some of them weren't as step by step as I

would have liked. Could anybody tell me how to set one up and which drivers to use? I

would really appreciate any help I can get because I'm new to the older macs. Thanks(once

again) for reading my post.

SCSI Zip Drive on a Mac Plus

Check out this link for a driver:

and just put the driver in your System Folder and shut it down. Plug in the SCSI Zip and start your mac and you should be set.

How big have SCSI Zips gotten

How big have SCSI Zips gotten? Did they stop at the 100 or 250MB mark with SCSI? This got me thinkin' SE/30 or other compact Mac with a ZIP in place of the floppy drive, or maybe in addition to. Why, I dunno.

ZIP-drive boot is indeed as s

ZIP-drive boot is indeed as simple as those above have commented. Hoewever, if you want to buy a 100 MB Apple-branded hard disk made specifically for the Mac Plus (with MacOS 7.1 and tons of apps and games already installed) I'll sell it to you for $20.00 shipped. It will only work with a computer that has no internal hard drive, such as a Mac Plus or SE, and is shaped to sit underneath the Mac Plus perfectly.

If interested, let me know by emailing me (Keary) at !
