I have checked and ziptool is installed, I have a Zip icon on my desktop,
but obviously, something needs to be configured somewhere.
I read /usr/share/doc/packages/ziptool/README, but there wasn't any help as
far as I could decipher. Any ideas?
what does it say about yourr Zip-Drive in /etc/fstab?
Is the Zip-Disk in your drive, the Zip-Disk provided with your drive. I do
not know it exactly with the Zip250, but the Zip-Disk of the Iomega Zip100
was formatted differently! If you have got one, try a seperately bought Disk.
Other possibility: the kernel module is not loaded:
try as root:
then try to mount again
I hope, this is usefull
