A ordinary floppy cable will do it.
Remember to fit the red side of the cable to pin 1 on the iomegastreamer. When you fit the cable to the floppy cable, connect red to red.

Go to and download the file "iodetect.exe".
This utility will test your floppy controller.
NB : Newer ditto's can't run on older computers because the standard floppy controller on the main board is too slow. ( also some early pentium computers )1 MB transfer is absolute minimum.
If the motherboard cant handle this, then you must buy a controller card.
Ask your dealer if you can use a non iomega controller card first...

I have searched ALOT tonight for the driver to
"IOMEGA TAPE 250". At the end I did found out that IOMEGA calls this streamer for "DITTO 250".
It's ONE file to download for the new and the old DITTO drives -- ( W95-W98 ) included the "tape250"

Here's the link :
6.58 MB download

I do hope this is correct - I'm downloading this file right now. Well - Iomega said so.

: hi i have iomega 250 i`ve just finish downloading drivers for it when i installed them i saw "You not have connected any drivers"

: this drive has a 34pin connector i`ve connect it to the floppy cable is that correct ? or i need a controler for it ?
