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.
