Thread: USB Zip Drive

    USB Zip Drive

    Hi, I've just set up RH linux on my computer and would really like to get my USB Zip250 working with it, but i'm not having a lot of success.
    I'm a linux newbie, so i went on the net to do some reading about this, but i can't find a step-by-step tutorial.
    I'm using RH7.0, so i think i've got quite an old kernel - is that a problem.
    please forgive my general stupidity!

    Re:USB Zip Drive

    Well I got a USB CDR and it worked after plugging it in on RH 8 (the first revision I have tried it on ever). I would say it is the kernel. 7.0 has an older 2.2 kernel, and the 2.4 kernel is where a shitload of USB development has come from. Update to the latest 2.4 kernel that RedHat will give ya, and see. I know there is USB ZIP drip support. I can go thru the mail list from RedHat and see what I have laying around, but definitely upgrade the kernel -- like now ;D

    BTW, the kernel has (what the windows world calls drivers) all of the USB modules with it. Thats why I say go that route. I have no clue your experience level.
