OT?: Zip Drive Floppies Won't Work - Mac Applications & Software

bought 2 new 100mb floppies for Macs. Inserted them and got the cannot recognize them error message. tried to initialize them and it kicked them out with an initialization failed error. managed to reformat PC formatted floppies and they work fine so the drive is ok. Any way to figure out why it won't take Mac formatted disks? It seemed like an awfully simple purchase at the time. Can't figure out why they won't work. Craig...

    Default OT?: Zip Drive Floppies Won't Work

    bought 2 new 100mb floppies for Macs. Inserted them and got the
    cannot recognize them error message. tried to initialize them and it
    kicked them out with an initialization failed error.

    managed to reformat PC formatted floppies and they work fine so the
    drive is ok. Any way to figure out why it won't take Mac formatted
    disks?

    It seemed like an awfully simple purchase at the time. Can't figure
    out why they won't work.

    Are they Fujis? Had a couple of those arrive DOA. Couldn't do anything
    with them.

    Yes, they are Fuji as a matter of fact. Got them at Compuware. It was
    the only brand they had. Never again. What did you buy that did
    work?
