After mounting a zip drive the disk doesn't get locked in the drive, I can
eject it without unmounting.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert zip disk in drive
2. mount it
3. press eject

Actual Results:  The disk pops out.

Expected Results:  The disk should of stayed inside until unmount.

Can you try disabling "magicdev" and/or "autorun" in the Control Center?
This program tends to cause this kind of behavior.

Comment 2 Carlos Rodrigues 2001-05-03 21:59:10 UTC
Both magicdev and autorun are disabled.

I forgot to mention that the drive is a zip 100 plus connected to a ISA Iomega
Zoom SCSI card.

The same goes for the paralell port Zip-drive with ppa-module

For me, kernel 2.4.3-12 from updates.redhat.com fixes this problem.
