OS 9.1 and Zip disks
How do you reformat a PC zip disk with 9.1? When I try to launch the iomega tools in the Apple extras folder...I get a message that says no zip disk can be found?!?!?! I have a disk in the drive and it appears on the desktop, but no way to reformat. Am I overlooking something obvious????

OS 9.1 and imega tools have some incompatibility. You cant format a ZIP to DOS(for sure...i know that dumb) but there may be more incompatibilities.

Check, they have info on this

You can't use Iomega Tools unless you have the Iomega driver loaded. Check your extensions folder. Under 9.1 you can still access the drive, with the included Iomega software located in the Apple Extras folder, and it will mount on the desktop. But Iomega tools needs the extension to work.
