How to write in a removable imation (LS 120MB) disk ???

Upgrade your kernel to 2.0.34. It should recognize it as "atapi floppy
drive" and will let you read/write to it freely. You can, however,
choose not to compile the IDE Floppy driver, but to enable SCSI
emulation instead. This will let you use the drive as a SCSI device, and
you'll be able to software-eject it :-).

1. Sense write protect on removable disk?

We have recently acquired two Pinnacle Micro Tahoe 230 Mbyte MO disc
drives, and are currently investigating possible pitfalls (i.e. falling
into them).  Can anyone suggest a software way to test whether a loaded
cartridge is write protected, on this or any other SCSI drive?  Mounting
such a cartridge read/write is a nice way to crash SunOS.  I had hopes of
using scsiping, but this seems to report everything but the write protect

With apologies for the re/cross posting,
