ZIp Drive Problems


I have Asus A7v133a motherboard with my zip drive attached to the Raid arrays(Scsi) . Now I can read from the zip drive but cannot write as I keep getting a error about not having right permission .

So I log on as a root user and try alter the settings but still getting the same error messages about not having the right permissions. So I am figuring that linux is not detected the zip drive properly . In harddrake it is detected as a IDE device not scsi but is enabled on the secondary channel .

My question is how can I detect this via raid(scsi) and get the proper settings. At the moment the zip drive has been allocated to hde4 which is a ide hard drive port or /dev/ide/host0/bus2/target0/lun0/part4 .

The error about write permissions is probably referencing the permissions on the device file that you are using to access the zip drive. As root, do a:
chmod a+rw /dev/<your device file>

I tried using the chmod a+rw /dev/hde4 it did not work so I tried using the /dev/zip same results.
So next tried chmod a+rw /mnt/hde4 and /mnt/zip ,it worked . The zip drive now works like a floppy but now their is a dir called lost+found ,is that like a recycle bin.

lost+found is for when a file system check is carried out. Anything that gets recovered after a file system check gets placed in lost+found
