I have a 250MB zip drive attached to an I-Mac. It worked fine

Resolved Question:

I have a 250MB zip drive attached to an I-Mac. It worked fine under system 10.5. I just upgraded to 10.6 and the computer won't even mount the zip disks on the desktop. What can I do?

Unfortunately, at this time no driver for OS X 10.6 is available.

From the Iomega website:
"Iomega is currently working to complete testing with the new Macintosh® OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard™ operating system"

You can see the list of products that are currently qualified for use with Mac OS X 10.6, and the Zip 250 is not on that list.

So, please check the site regularly to see if they update the drivers to the OS X 10.6 version.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
