Iomega Bernoulli 230

Part of the Iomega Bernoulli family of drives. 230MB capacity.

The Bernoulli 230MB, 150MB, 105MB, 90MB, 65MB, 35MB disks can all be read and written to. The Bernoulli 44 disks can be read only. Bernoulli 20MB disks are not recognized by the Bernoulli 230 drive. The Bernoulli 230 drive offers both short and long (surface verify) format options when formatting a 230MB disk. When formatting other capacity Bernoulli disks (150MB, 105MB, 90MB, 65MB, 35MB), only the short format option is available.
