The Iomega USB Zip 100 has a structure similar to Iomega's earlier version of the Bernoulli Box that had writable surface in both sides of the disk mounted with read or write heads in a linear configuration. The read and write heads are in form of actuator flies that rapidly spin over the flexible medium supported on a strong cartridge. The difference between the Iomega USB Zip 100 disk and the earlier version of Bernoulli Box set up is that the former lacks a Bernoulli plate. As a result, the Iomega USB Zip 100 has a cartridge with only a single disk as opposed to the two disks used in the Bernoulli cartridge (that is one located on each side of the Bernoulli plate). Inside the Iomega USB Zip 100, read and write heads move in a mechanism similar to that used on a HDD without involving the principle employed in the Bernoulli plate.
