    Zip drive

    My new computer has a 250 mb zip drive. My old computer had a 100 mb zip drive. I'm still backing up the sam Quicken file; yet, the new drive copies it much slower than the old drive. That doesn't sound like progress to me. Any thoughts as to why?

    if you are using your old 100Mb zips on your new drive that could be why. Try with a 250 and see how it goes

    second option that comes to mind is how the drive is connected - if it is on the same IDE channel as your hard disk this again will slow it down
