Zip drive on FC10



After having used my Zip drive since FC4, I installed FC10. After
install, the system tells me that the Zip drive is there OK. I put in a
disk but the drive turns and the access light stays on but it won't
mount. After that, it won't unmount either and the only way to fix the
situation is power down and up again. The drive no longer appears when
the "Computer" ikon is opened : floppy, yes, other HDs, yes, Kingston U
stick, yes : but no Zip.
I tried creating a suitable directory and then mounting, but it comes
back and tells me that I must specify the file type. If I do that, it
still doesn't mount.
So, I went in as root, added a suitable line to fstab and fired up
again : the same thing : can't get Zip to mount.
This is frustrating as I regularly use these to store little bits of
useful data without wasting blank CDs and previous FCs operated the
drives OK.
Again, suggestions would be appreciated.
