CONFIG_SCSI_PPA: IOMEGA parallel port (ppa - older drives)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SCSI_PPA:

Help text

This driver supports older versions of IOMEGA's parallel port ZIP drive (a 100 MB removable media device).

Note that you can say N here if you have the SCSI version of the ZIP drive: it will be supported automatically if you said Y to the generic "SCSI disk support", above.

If you have the ZIP Plus drive or a more recent parallel port ZIP drive (if the supplied cable with the drive is labeled "AutoDetect") then you should say N here and Y to "IOMEGA parallel port (imm - newer drives)", below.

For more information about this driver and how to use it you should read the file Documentation/scsi/ppa.rst. You should also read the SCSI-HOWTO, which is available from If you use this driver, you will still be able to use the parallel port for other tasks, such as a printer; it is safe to compile both drivers into the kernel.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ppa.
