Zip disks : LUSENET : ATPM Macintosh Help : One Thread

Hi, Can PC zip disks be reformatted for Mac ( 100 meg zips) Thanks

Sure they can - I do it all the time. I usually buy Zip disks preformatted for PC in bulk at low prices and reformat for the Mac. You can do it from the Finder easily by using the Erase Disk command and selecting HFS rather than PC DOS from the format popup menu. Or if you don't have PC Exchange (or File Exchange) installed the Mac will ask you automatically upon inserting a PC formatted Zip disk into your drive.
