No zip in my drive

I have an internal zip drive that is not working Win95 on a particular board. The chipset on the board is Intel 82430 FX/VX/HX. The drive will show up in windows but not read or format zip disks. I've tried the zip drive on other systems and it works just fine. I've also tried two other zip drives with the same result. I've disable the PNP setting as Iomega suggests, same result.

....  You could have a Intel 32430FX, VX or HX...  They're 3 different chipsets...  Make sure which chipsets you have first, then as I recall, not all motherboard bios supports Zip.  You might have to upgrade your motherboard's bios, check with the m/b manufacturer for bios availability.

Thanks... I thought that might be it. I was looking for something more specific if anyone else had the same type of problem.
