Hi Andy,

	Not a problem is all yours. The unit is 100% operational. Send me your address to mail it to you and after you had verified that is working, then feel free to pay the $20.00 at your own convenience. As an extra bonus I will through in a "Compaq Linux" license plate with the New Hampshire "Live Free or Die" message.

I have a parallel port zip drive rescued from a garbage can. I believe it
uses SCSI commands since it uses an SCSI driver. It normally transfers
only four bits at a time because old PC parallel ports had only four
status signals that could be used for input. There is also a faster mode
(Parallel Port Accelerator) which probably uses the abilities of EPP mode
(enhanced parallel port) to transfer eight bits at a time. Is the H8 able
to input data from a parallel port?

Norberto, I'd be interested in having a second zip drive so I could leave
one connected to my home computer and use another for helping friends
move or backup big files. I would be happy to pay about $20 for it.
