Okay I need help in a bad way. My instructor is using Powerpoint 2001 and she must have had a file on a zip disk still, but the disk is in Iowa and she is in Texas. She keeps getting the insert disk warning and then the computer will lock up. Is there any way to get around this warning other then command-period? She has a presentation tomorrow morning. What can I do?

might be a little late but if its external and its locking up and thats not normal it could be a bad or lose cable conencting the zip drive and the computer or its not terminated. If its USB I have NO clue then hehe except rebuilding the desktop database file on the zip disk.
