But this is not Intel at all!
The ways of AMD and Intel, from our point of view, have long diverged. If earlier it was possible to install at least Intel or at least AMD into the…

Our tips

Tip 1
Turn on the Zip drive only for the duration of discarding information with constant monitoring of its operation, so that when clicks appear, inspect the drive in a timely manner and prevent a possible malfunction that occurs in the device or cartridge itself.

The zip drive is very sensitive to both the number of on-offs and the time the heads are above the disk. Zip internal drives are better protected from external influences, and, thanks to the SCSI or IDE interface, they have several times faster information exchange, which means less load on the write-read node.

Tip 2
Before using Zip, lift the protective shutter on the front panel of the Zip drive and see what condition the heads are in. In good condition, they will look the same as in fig. 5. It will not be very simple, but the inspection will make sure that before starting work with an unknown disk, your drive was working. It is advisable to do the same procedure at the end of work with the cartridge.
If you suspect that the heads are not positioned correctly on the parking mat, contact (before it is too late) specialists.

Tip 3
If you suspect that your diskette is “infected”, in no case try to read it using another drive. This can lead to its failure.

Processor performance
You can still praise the advantages of technical solutions of the processor. Moreover, the “stone” turned out to be really successful. But many are probably most interested in the end…
