I have a mac G5 and an external iomega 750 USB drive and am trying to copy jpgs back to my G5 that I stored on my Zip 100 disks 10 years ago. The disks wrrr away but I've only been able to copy a few of the jpgs off the zip disks, then it wrrs somemore and often just quits. What can I do to get the jpgs off the zip disks. I want to ultimately burn the jpgs onto CDs. Thanks for any help you can give me.

There were a TON of problems with Zip disks and Zip drives back in the day. Honestly you are damn lucky if you can pull anything off of a 10 year old zip disk. I'm extremely surprised to didn't get the click of death the moment you inserted it, lol.

Thanks....I bought a used zip drive on Ebay (250) and it is working and the 250 allows me to write as well as read. Yay! Am slowly burning everything from my zip discs to DVDs.
