I recently installed 9.2.1, which is working fine on my wallstreet, except that my vst zip100 is no longer hotswapable.

Does anybody know of a cure for this? Iomega doesn't.

Thanks

It's the drive itself. If I pull out the battery or CD and put in VST's zip the machine does not recognize it and the machine freezes until I eject the module. No restart is needed. Everything works if the bay is inserted while the pb is shut down, but that's a pain when you're used to being able to swap them on the fly.
