The SmartMedia ZiO! is only compatible with 3.3 Volt SSFDC format cards. The SmartMedia
ZiO! can accept SmartMedia cards in current capacities of up to 128MB.
•
The CompactFlash ZiO! is compatible with all current CompactFlash cards available on
the market, as well as cards in the CFII and CF+ Type II formats, such as the IBM

directly at the gold contacts from the top - refer to the illustration at the bottom of the page.
Flip the card over and be sure to insert the (3.3V) SmartMedia card with the gold contacts
facing down (therefore the notch will now be located on the left when the gold contacts are

Inserting a CompactFlash Card
1.
Position the CompactFlash card in the direction as shown in the illustration below.
2.
Insert the card being certain of the orientation - all leading manufacturers of
CompactFlash cards adhere to a specification requiring a positive keying of the card.
Gently push the card in all the way until the card is locked in place. The card will slide in
on the molded rails and a slight amount of resistance will be felt as the connectors make
contact. This is normal.
WARNING: Be careful not to insert the CompactFlash card in the wrong direction - be sure the
connectors are facing inward and the card is not inserted upside down. If it is forced in, the ZiO!
or CompactFlash card may be damaged or data on the card may be lost or corrupted.
IMPORTANT: If excessive force is required or the card just doesn’t seem to fit, do not attempt
to force the card in the reader, instead, call Dazzle’s Technical Support number for assistance.

Mounting and Accessing a Card (Macintosh)
After a card is inserted on a Macintosh computer, a distinct icon will appear on the Mac OS
desktop. This is the “mounted” state, which enables read and write operations for the card. The
time required between card insertion and mounting depends on the type and brand of card.
Usually, a card can be mounted and accessed within a few seconds.
When a card is mounted, it can be used in the same fashion as a floppy disk or other type of
removable disk. Double-click the icon to open it's respective file window. For example, in the
screen shot below - an IBM 340MB Microdrive was inserted into the CompactFlash ZiO!. By
double-clicking on the Microdrive icon you will see it contains 10 high resolution TIF images
taken on a professional digital camera. The images stored on this Microdrive can be copied,

Dazzle OnDVD Software
INTRODUCTION
Dazzle OnDVD is easy-to-use software that lets you take your digital pictures and turn them into a
slideshow you can record to a CD for playback on your DVD player. Simply select the pictures you
want to put into your slideshow (maximum 500 pictures per CD), arrange them on the timeline and
record the slideshow to a CD with your CD-Recorder.
OnDVD records two copies of your pictures to the CD disc. The first session is a slideshow in the
VideoCD (VCD) format, which can be played back in a DVD player (or VCD player), connected to your
TV. The second session is a backup copy of all your high quality pictures, which can be read back from
your PC's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. If you put the CD into a DVD Player, the slideshow will automatically play. If you put the CD into your PC, you can automatically look at the archived pictures.

to see if your player reads CD-R discs.
CD-RW Discs - On this type of media, you can write, erase and re-write data many times. All DVD
Players should be able to read CD-RW media.

My slideshow won't play on my DVD player.
a) Check the Owner's Manual of your DVD player to see if it can read VCDs (VideoCDs). If
it can, go on to step b. If it cannot, you will not be able to view your slideshow on this
DVD player.
b) If you recorded the slideshow onto a CD-R disc, check the Owner's Manual of your
DVD player to see if your DVD player can read CD-R discs. If it can read a CD-R disc but
it will not play the slideshow, you probably have a damaged CD-R disc. Re-record it and
try again. If your DVD player cannot read CD-R discs, re-record your slideshow to a CDRW disc and try to play it again.
c) If you recorded the slideshow onto a CD-RW disc and it will still not play, check the
bottom of the CD-RW disc for fingerprints or scratches. Re-record to a new CD-RW disc
if necessary.
d) If you are unable to find information in your DVD player Owners Manual, you can often
find the information on the Internet. Check the DVD player's manufacturer website. You
can also visit www.vcdhelp.com for information on many different DVD players.
2.
I can't read the archived files from the CD on my PC.
a) You must use the included file viewer program to read the CD from your PC.
b) If the viewer program did not automatically launch when you inserted the CD, remove
the CD and re-insert it.
c) If the viewer program still did not launch, click on the 'Viewer.exe' file on the CD.
d) If the viewer launched and no files are visible, re-record the CD and try again.

I have installed the ZiO! drivers and have the ZiO! plugged into my USB port, but
when I insert my digital media card nothing happens.
PC Compatible:
The Dazzle ZiO! is a digital card reader/writer that is accessed as a removable disk. In
order to access the digital images or data stored on your media card, you must access the
ZiO! through it’s "Removable Disk" icon. This can be done by first opening "My
Computer". Here you will see a "Removable Disk" icon (drive letter will also be assigned)
representing your ZiO!. Now double-click on the "Removable Disk" icon to display the
contents of the media inserted in your ZiO!. This is where your digital images or data will
be located.
Digital cameras will usually create a folder or folders on the digital media card, which will
contain your digital images. Depending on the digital camera you have, the folder names
will vary. Double-click on the respective folder name to access the digital images contained
within. You can create a preview by double-clicking on one of the image icons.
Macintosh:
Once a card is inserted on a Macintosh, a distinct icon will appear on the Mac OS desktop.
This is the "mounted" state which enables read and write operations for the media.
Opening the media icon will allow you access to the images stored on your respective
media card. Depending on the media used, the time it takes a media card to mount
may vary.

term "original end user" shall exclude dealers. Dealers shall not be entitled to the benefits of the limited warranty.
It is your responsibility to establish the warranty period by verifying the original purchase date. Accordingly, to avoid dispute, you
should return the warranty card within ninety (90) days after the date of purchase.
If you discover a defect, The Company will, at its option, repair or replace this product with a new or reconditioned product at no
charge to you, provided you return it during the warranty period, with transportation charges prepaid. (You can obtain additional information by contacting a Customer Service Representative at the telephone number printed on the certificate.) In the event that an
alternate product is unavailable, The Company will refund the cost of goods at a pro-rated amount. To each product returned for warranty service, please attach your name, address, telephone number, and a copy of the bill of sale bearing the appropriate serial numbers as proof of date of original retail purchase, as well as a detailed description of the problem for which service is requested. Prior
to returning the product, you must obtain from The Company a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#). You are responsible for packaging the product to be returned, and should take care that the product is packed in its original packaging. If the repairs
are covered by the Limited Warranty and if the product was properly shipped to The Company, The Company will pay the return shipping charges.
This warranty applies only to hardware products manufactured by The Company that can be identified by The Company’s trademark,
trade name, or logo affixed to them. This warranty does not cover: damage resulting from accident, misuse, abuse, or neglect and/or
damage during any type of transportation resulting from improper packaging; damage to any product which has been altered in any
fashion, including the alteration or removal of any serial number; damage resulting from causes other than product defects, including
and not by way of limitation, lack of technical skill, competence, or experience of the user, and/or failure to use the product in accordance with the instructions provided in the User’s Manual; and service performed by an unauthorized person or entity.
All computer software either sold and/or licensed to a purchaser or user is done so on an "as is" basis. The only warranties relating to
such software, if any, are provided by the Master Licensor of such software and are set forth in the User’s Manual. The entire risk as
to the quality and performance of such software is with the purchaser or user. Should such software prove defective following its
purchase the purchaser or user, as the case may be (and not The Company) assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing or
repair.
Any implied warranties including fitness for use and merchantability are limited in duration to the period of the expressed warranty
set forth above. The remedies provided under this warranty are exclusive and in lieu of all others.
The Company hereby expressly disclaims liability and shall not be responsible for incidental, consequential and contingent damages
of any kind or nature, including, without limitation: damages to persons or property, whether a claim for such damages is based upon
warranty, contract, tort or otherwise; damages due to or arising out of the loss of data; or lost profits.
The Company shall not be responsible for any damages caused by the presence of error or omission in any so-called "foreign language version" of its manuals, instructions or related materials.
