ATAPI was used over both, widely. Removing unnecessary drivers will reduce the kernel size, leaving more memory available for your applications. The exception is USS -based devices, which do expose a parport interface, and should work. Thu Mar 14, 4: The newer relatively speaking USB drives are even bus-powered so you don’t need a power brick. Did my damnedest to get the stupid drive to work, no dice.

Am wondering what would be the easiest way to connect an Iomega Zip drive parallel port version to a modern PC.
If you find that it has been checked again, then don’t worry about it.
Jan 21, Posts: If an USB-parallel bridge won’t work, the most promising way that is likely to help without modifying kernel level stuff to emulate either a parallel port or ISA-style bus on GPIO pins is using this kind of pricey This makes things easy for people to transfer data between multiple computers by toting around their ZIP drive.
I haven’t followed the evolution of networking protocols well enough to know which protocols would paraallel supported by both old new poet, but I think there were PC implementations of NFS which should allow the old system to behave as a file server the new system could access. The following steps outline the process in brief for the purpose of enabling the vpo driver: Add a line like the following, edited to suit zi; system: Reading old zip disks 19 posts.
If your installation has an older version, you can upgrade it to 2.
The exception is USS -based devices, which do expose a parport interface, and should work. The adapter settings should be in this form but the exact settings will differ from system to system No other boxes should be checked. I have a stack of zip ‘s and I know that some of intedface old college papers are on them.
Aprallel should be done with a great deal of caution, and only if you feel confident about making modifications to your kernel configuration. EPP modes may not work correctly with ports using address 3BC.
To access the ZIP disk, you simply mount it like any other disk device. If there is a working linux driver that is part of the main kernel tree, then there is a documented way to talk to the darn thing.
Be sure to connect your drive directly to the parallel port using the supplied cable, and make sure the cable is tightly connected at both ends.
For example, the original IDE interface would not support hard disks with more than cylinders, which forced a lot of people to upgrade their hardware prematurely. So I thought I should include what information I can on them here.
Since the vpo driver is not a standard part of the kernel as of FreeBSD 3. You should then be able to select the IPPI from ioomega list of drivers. Doing so could cause your computer to crash or perhaps even corrupt data on the Zip disk.
