The Iomega Z100P2 is an external Zip drive for use with a personal computer. Zip drives are designed to read Zip discs, a contemporary of the floppy disc that holds 100 MB. Zip drives are not a very efficient way to store data these days, since external hard drives typically hold between 250 GB and 1 TB, and flash drives typically hold between 1 GB and 16 GB. If you have old legacy Zip discs, however, you may decide to install the Iomega Z100P2 to access that data.
