A Zip Iomega 100 drive is a large floppy disk storage device, using disks that are slightly larger and fatter than the older 3 1/2-inch floppy disk. These Zip disks store up to 100 megabytes worth of data and can be used on any computer with a Zip drive installed, including systems running Windows XP. Installing the Iomega Zip 100 drive on a computer is similar to setting up any other external hardware.
