ZIP 250 w/4.25 ?doesn't see DOS disks

Post by mike » Wed, 06 Dec 2000 14:21:44



I can't get my IDE ZIP 250 to see DOS disks.

Fsys.eide fsys -Ndisk1 -n0=hd1. -n5=cd1. eide -a170 -i15
Fsys.floppy -a3f0 -i6
Dosfsys b=/dev/fd1 a=/dev/fd0

ZIP is showing up as /dev/fd0 due to the Fsys.floppy/Fsys.eide order.

The ZIP will read QNX formated disks fine, but it can't see DOS disks...
Corrupted file system detected...

Does anyone know why?

Thanks!

Did you try 'Fatfsys'? I think this is the most recent DOS file system
manager. There has also been a Fsys.dos, but this is out-of-date, too.

I'm not the original poster but . . . .
I did just try Fatfsys and it's no better than Dosfsys or Fsys.dos (I have
all three).

What else can we try?

Your problem may be that the Iomega DOS disks have
a partition table on them.   Try:

# mount -p /dev/fd1
# Dosfsys b=/dev/fd1t6 & ( or whatever

BTW, I recommend getting Fatfsys.

Er, ah, sorry.  I was watching the movie "Short Circuit" last night.  Let's
try that again.

BINGO!

That was the problem.  I didn't realize that Zip disks had a partition.

Thanks again, Mitch.

Got it.  Thanks.

I second this.
Previously I had the same problem with a ZIP 100 IDE.
With QNX 4.25D, I no longer need 'mount' command, only:

Fatsys b=/dev/fd0 a=/dev/fd1
ZIP is recognized as /dev/fd0 by Fdisk.eide
