I've seen a few discussions on other sites that a Jaz SCSI drive can
be used to install to a 1 GB disk. Being the impatient type, I have
a power supply coming and already have a drive, cable, and about 15
disks. Does anyone have experience using this with a IIGS and Apple
Here's a thread from a while back on using a Jaz with both a RamFAST and
an Apple HS SCSI card. I think you may find it helpful.
Steve Hartz started that thread, Wayne Stewart contributed, and I think
Glenn Jones actually had some success using a Jaz with the Apple card.
Hartz still comes by this group occasionally. I seem to recall helping
him write an AppleWorks macro to wake the Jaz from sleep at one time, so
I guess he got it to work. Maybe he'll see this and comment.
I've never used a Jaz, so I can comment directly. Sorry.
But, unlike Schmidt and quite a few others, I've had good results using
Iomega's Zip 100 drives for over 20 years now.
Sure, I've had some drives fail over the years, but I've kept enough NIB
spares to keep the party going. I never lost any data due to a drive
That said, all SCSI Zip and Jaz owners, myself included, should probably
switch over to the SCSI2SD device or the Artmix FuzinMonster SD, and
step into the 21st century. :-)
