Description madill 1999-05-25 16:57:38 UTC
ATAPI internal zip drives do not mount correctly.  Mine is
recognized as hdd.  I set up the fstab for:

/dev/hdd4	/mnt/zip	vfat	noauto,rw	0 0

When I mount it, it mounts fine.  When I read or copy from a
zip disk, no problems.  BUT, when I write to a zip disk it
corrupts the file and it is unusable.  This did not occur in
version 5.2.  Please help - I have made the jump to Linux
because of RedHat (since version 5.0) and now I find I have
to go back to my old Windows machine to write to my zip
disks.  HELP!

I was able to replicate this problem in our test lab using an internal
ATAPI zip drive. Whenever a write operation is done using kernel
2.2.5-15, a hdd I/O error message is printed several times to the
screen. Although the write operation seems to complete well enough, it
is probably not reliable.

This is not a mount problem (R/W I/O has not do with mount) and
appears similar to #3416.
