Now my B/W G3 tries to share all PC formatted Zip cartridges I insert. Of course it fails but then thinks the disk is in use and wil
not allow me to eject. Prior to the bump to 9.1 from 9.0.4 this didn't happen.
I need File Sharing on. What changed in the File Sharing or File Exchange control panels??

problem solved!

Apparently allowing File Sharing Clients to connect via TCP/IP causes the Mac to attempt to share PC formatted ZIPs.

Disabling this feature stopped the problem.

I just saw this problem on my G3 last night, and was wondering what was going on. Thanks for the info!
