I have a home built system,Shuttle AK31v2,1.4G Athlon,512MB PC2100,Creative Labs 52x cd-rom,lite-on 52x24x52 burner,ATI Radeon 8500LE 128MB DDR,and a Iomega Zip 100.It runs smooth as silk,but I have had twice, in the last year,I put a disk in the zip disk drive and it shows files I know aren't on the disk, mostly it has done it with videos and mp3.I click on the file and it says unable to find codec(I've played the file before, with no problem.Then I run Scandisk on it and it says,"All of this file is not in the same location", or "there are some crosslinked files, would you like to repair?" What might would cause this and does anybody know of a solution? Thanks a million! It just kills me to lose my files!

make sure the properties say it is a removable drive.

my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!
