I would like to connect an Iomega zip drive with a Mac (SCSI) connector to a pc.
Is there a cable from SCSI to USB?

It's an external drive? Any adapter cable will likely cost more than just buying a USB zip drive on ebay.

Or you can add a PCI SCSI card to your PC and connect it that way.

The external connection on the zip drive should be Future Domain SCSI connection. It looks like a PC parallel port but isn't. Also, a parallel port cable won't work but I guess you have the SCSI cable. As far as I know, that cable is the same for both mac and PC.

So if you look for a SCSI card it would need to have the Future Domain type external connection.

Here's a couple on ebay:

A PC will not be able to read mac-formatted disks but you can reformat mac disks when the drive is connected to the PC and then use them.
