Looking for a USB external ZIP 250 drive

Looking for a very non-computer literate friend. She has some zip 100 & zip 250 disks she would like to get the data off of. She has a newer computer Win7 or Win10 (I forget which) so a USB external drive is the best bet. When I asked her if she had SATA or older hard drives in her system she had no idea what I was talking about. No crack on her, that's just what it is.

So. She is looking for a zip 250 unit so she can read both sets of disks. A USB drive is probably the easiest connection for her. I suspect (I haven't seen it) her computer is new enough to not have serial or parallel ports.

Does anyone have one available? She lives near me in southwest Ohio.
