    Zip drives are very obsolete these days. Invest in a USB flash (memory) stick or drive. These are relatively cheap, and they will out perform any zip drive. Writeable CD/DVD's also store a lot more data than zip drives do

    You should be able to see the drive in My Computer. You move any files from your hard drive by cutting and pasting them to the flash drive
