Recently changed from internet access via modem and AOL to cable through my local cable company (Comcast).  Now I cannot find or access my Zip drive.  What happened?  Could this have something to do with an IRQ setting and how do I check for that?

Mac OS hardware does not have IRQ settings like the PC. The ZIP drive uses a SCSI address, which I don't think your cable modems uses. I do suspect however that you have an extension conflict with the software your cable company installed and the Iomega drivers.

First, be sure you have the latest drivers from Iomega (5.0.1 on the ftp site). Make sure everything is connected properly (it's possible something got moved when the Cable was installed). Make sure the ZIP drivers are indeed in the proper spots (extensions folder and Control panels with the latest drivers) and restart. If you still can't find the ZIP, try running the Guest utility. If you can mount a ZIP with that, you have an extension conflict.

Hope this helps.

I lied, it's called System Picker (Blesser was an older utility). You might try ftp://ftpdev.info.apple.com, ftp://ftp.info.apple.com, ftp://support.apple.com, and ftp://ftp.apple.com

If these fail, contactct me directly <mailto:macman@islandnet.com> and I'll see if I can provide you more information.
