Can not access shared Zip drive

by Magetower In reply to Can not access shared Zip ...

Chack a few things to narrow down the problem.

1. Is there anything in the event logs on the server indicating a problem with the zip.

2. Can you still access the zip drive on the server itself.

3. Remove/replace the disk in the zip drive and test access.

4. Make sure there hasn't been a chenge done on the server that causes conflicts with drive lettering.

5. Remove and re-establish the share if all else looks good.

Some mor detail would be helpful...

good luck

If the Server has been re-started without a zip in the drive, it won't recognize it. Try inserting the zip disk and re-starting the Sever.

Download a new zip driver for Winnt from Iomega website, because previous version had problems.

Iomega tech support told me that their zip drives (under NT) are incompatible with anti-virus software and that users should disable the AV software before using the zip drive. I have found that you frequently have to go a step further and disable auto-protect, then reboot to restore a zip drive to normal operation.

Reality check: Why would users want to disable virus checking on a drive that is used to import files?
