Yes you can download the driver and transfer to the XP machine.

The drivers you need are located on the the following page:

Hello Chris.

It looked very promising but when I clicked on the right link for the 100/parallel port for xp, the link took me to a page which said it had been moved and I would be re-directed. Alas, when redirected, it said the page was no longer available!

Hi Don,

Sorry about that, I see what you mean. I have been hunting this down for you and I did find a working download for iomega ware, the version you need I believe.

Try this for me. Click HERE , do not click anything on that page, it is all ads, instead wait a moment and the download should start. Try installing iomegaware with your drive attached to the XP machine and see if that gets it working.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Chris
