Hi all,
I have an internal IDE/ATAPI ZIP 100 in my box. I can mount,
read/write, and umount it. But I cannot eject it. :-(
I think you need a tool that can send the proper ioctl to the kernel.
Think jazip or ziptool (seems not to be in woody) should work.  Don't
know if jaztool (which is present in woody) works with Zip drives.
You need to compile scsi emulation into your kernel.
So under Block Devices say yes to "SCSI EMulation Support"

Rubbish - all you need is IDE Removeable deviced or IDE Floppy support. Which the original poster must have because he says "I can mount, read/write, and umount it"

I think all he wants is a way to press the eject button, and cdtool.deb contains cdeject, which should do it.

cdeject -d /dev/hdc
