Error 205 w/ Zip Disks (couldn't erase disk)

Recommended Posts

I'm running Ret Express 5.0.167 on Mac OSX. I've tried a Zip Disk (100) and Zip 250 - in every USB port I've got (a newer iMac). The USB ports *work* because I print and do other things with them. But every time I try to do a backup, RE crashes at the beginning when trying to erase the disk. Also: disk doctor is able to erase the disks fine (so not a problem with the media). The Zip 250 is even brand new- I bought it because I thought maybe the problem was the old Zip drive... any thoughts on this?


Thanks so much,

Sydney (computer consultant, on behalf of client)
