    Zip drive

    My zip drive on my computer has suddenly started running much slower. In other words, when I go to backup a file now, the drive light comes on and just stays on for many seconds before it finally copies the file. Previously, it would copy immediately. I tried defragging the zip cartridge to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Why do you think the drive is running slower? Maybe you're copying a larger file, or more files to the disk. It takes me almost 5 minutes to copy a 100 meg compressed file to a Zip disk.
