I have a need to retrieve some data from a zip drive, but I cannot remember what I need to get everything working.
What I have:
Old PC with IDE controller running fresh install of WinXP SP3 ZIP drive with IDE interface
The CD-ROM in the PC was working, so I unplugged that cable and plugged it into the zip drive. I also set the jumper to "Master".
However, the BIOS does not see the zip drive, and neither does windows. I've tried both connectors on the IDE cable (I vaguely remember the days where A/B drives needed a twisted cable for the 2nd drive) but it didn't seem to make a difference.
What do I need to do to get this working? And will I need drivers, or will WinXP recognize the zip drive once I get the BIOS to see it?
(I can't even find tags to describe this problem :)
