Mounting Zip drive under Slackware
I'm sure this question has been answered before, but I can't seem to get any decent search results on it here. I put in "zip drive" on a search, but it brought up all kinds of irrelevant messages. I don't know what else to do but post.
I have an ATAPI Zip 100MB drive, and I've had it working under linux before, and I'm pretty sure all I did was mount it with type vfat as /dev/hdd or /dev/hdd4, I can't remember which, but neither one is working anymore. I have the fat, vfat, and msdos modules loaded, and I also have the ide-floppy module loaded. In the kernel configuration tool menuconfig, the help file states that the ide-floppy module is what allows use of ATAPI Zip and LS120 drives, but when I try to mount my drive, I get the following error after issuing the command 'mount -t vfat /dev/hdd(4) /mnt/zip':
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd(4), or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
I know it's not the filesystem modules, because msdos floppies mount just fine. I've had this working before, and I don't even recall having to use the ide-floppy module in the past (maybe it was compiled into the kernel), but from what I've read, this should work. Any suggestions?
