Need driver for floptical

I have an Insite SCSI floptical mechanism that I want to put on my Macintosh (SE/30, running MacOS 7.5.5), but I need a MacOS driver or something for it, since simply adding it to the SCSI chain didn't cause the drive to be recognized by the Finder.  Specifically, the drive does show up in a list of SCSI devices, but inserting either a floppy or floptical disk in the drive is not noticed by the Finder.  I can configure PC Exchange to load a driver for the device, but it only seems to be able to read DOS floppies and will not format either a floppy or floptical disk.  If you know where I could get a copy of the driver (or better yet, if you can send it to me), I'd sure appreciate it.

You should have software that came with the drive. When installed, it will place a driver in your internal hard disk (SCSI ID 0) you can mount it with a control panel like SCSIProbe.

Too little, too late.  This drive was originally used on a non-Macintosh computer, and did not come with a Macintosh driver. After searching for a freely-downloadable driver from everyone I could think of who had sold this drive (Insite, Tulin, Iomega, Connor), I finally broke down and paid $18 for a copy of Spot On, which seems to work pretty well (except that it won't recognize an MSDOS format 1.4MB diskette inserted in the floptical drive).  If anyone can point me to a better driver, I'll still give the points.

A better driver might be SCSI Probe, it displays all of the devices on your chain and lets you mount them.  It's a control panel, you can find it at most Mac interface web pages, my favorite is MacOver at: http://www.macover.net/
