Yesterday I was using my Zip Drive and it was working great. I put a bunch of pictures onto a disk and they saved fine. I put a password on it (becuase I like them) and shut down the computer.

Today, however, I double-click the "E" drive (which is the Zip) and it says:

"Please insert a disk into Drive E:."

But there's a disk in there.

The disk was working FINE yesterday! Can anyone tell me what happened. and/or what I should do? I'd really rather not reformat it (again, since it came password-protected from the guy I bought it from at a garage sale) and lose thouse pictures, but if that's my only option then I guess I'll have to...

Thanks for your input!

Heh alright I figured it out...

I had to right-click the Zip icon and go to Unprotect and then type in my password in order for it to let me open the disk.

FWIW, ZIP media and drives are pretty fragile. I would NOT use that as my only copy of anything you want to keep. My advice is to have at least two copies of anything valuable, preferably on different media types.
