> Yup, works right out of the box. Just make sure your files are all named with the 8.3 format so your DX2 doesn't confuse you in the way they are displayed.

There are many reasons people might want to buy a DiskDual. Some of which might be: it holds much more data, new model ZIP drives don't work with the DX2, you can put a CD-ROM in it, it's probably somewhat faster than the ZIP because of faster access times although both transfer over the parallel port whichs limits the max transfer speed.

If you have an old ZIP it's worth a try but a new one won't work.
