Zip is not working. Mounts on desk top but doesn't allow you to copy to it. Some times it doesn't mount and ask if you want to initialize the disc. , you say yes and it doesn't do it . It ejects it out.

Any clues? Any one else having zip problems.

Is this a SCSI or a ATA Zip? What version of the drivers are installed? I have an internal ATA Zip in my G4 and it works great. Driver version 6.0.8 from IomegaWare 2.8 running on OS 9.1

Don't install any Iomega drivers that came with your drive. Let the MacOS handle it with its own drivers.

Try this: Install the Iomega software and then disable it via Extension Manager or Conflict Catcher. When you have to initialize a Zip cartridge then enable the needed control panel, do your task, and the re-disable the control panel.
