OK, after some searching (while not the best search engine around, Startpage comes up a winner more often than not if there is anything relevant to be found) I've come up (almost) empty handed[0-1]. Everything else I've found so far for IOMEGA ZIP100 drives deals with the external drive (either USB or parallel port). I've not seen anything in dmesg or /var/log/messages that would indicate that the device is being detected by anything on boot aside from the BIOS. I'm not sure of the pin selector on the drive but it is cabled as the secondary master (the primary master being my hard drive, of course).
I did try "mount_msdosfs /dev/ad1s4 /mnt/zip" (zip added by me after creating the appropriate directory in /mnt) but came up with "mount_msdosfs: /dev/adls4: No such file or directory" (there is a disk currently loaded). Does anyone else have any experience with these drives? Are there any docs I'm missing (aside from the FreeBSD Handbook, which is silent about this under-appreciated (and unfortunately over-priced) device)? : http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/zip-drive/ : http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=734560+0+archive/1997/freebsd-questions/19970518.freebsd-questions : http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/disks.html -- Yours In Christ, PIT Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
