Does anyone already installed a Syquest EZ135 with NT 4.0. I can't enable the removable drive feature so I have to reboot at each cartridge change.

I know this problem from Iomega ZIP, there you have a special Iomega-Tool to do so.
But you can get yourself UNMNT10.ZIP for the internet which dismounts (and ejects) your cartridge without rebooting. With this you can also swap your drive letter.

I tried your program, but the problem is that he doesn't want unmount the drive because he is assimilated as a fixed drive...
Any idea ?

Do you have SCSI or IDE ?

Did you try MNT and UNMNT with all the options (see documentation)? It was designed for a similiar problem.
You can force NT to remove the drive from from the internal drive table (it will disappear in the explorer). I do not know if it will stay locked. With MNT you can also make the drive reapear.

Do the tools from Iomega work for you?

I do not belive this, but maybe a new BIOS which supports removable IDE-drives helps.

According to MS NT3.5x do not support removable IDE-drives, NT4.0 (SP2 installed) does. If it does not work your drive is not compatible. Is it possible to upgrade the firmware?)


This info is from Syquest:

SCSI:
=====
There might be a jumper telling the drive that it is a fixed drive or a removable one.
If it is formated to NTFS, or you have any open files on the drive (like the Systemfiles (e.g. swapfile)) NT keeps the drive locked.

IDE:
====
Unlocking is not supported, you must shutdown NT
(they do not tell which NT version they mean)
