I thought I could erase the Zip Disk from Utilities, like you do a quick erase with a CD-RW. Well I'm not sure if it erased it or not as now it won't mount anymore.
I couldn't eject the Zip Disk so I used a safety pin to eject it, now this green light keeps flashing and it won't mount the Zip Disk on the desktop when put back in. I did a restart and the light keeps flashing.
How do I get the green light to stop flashing? How can I get the Zip Disk drive to work again?
Shutdown your Mac completely and open the side door. Where the Zip drive is, unplug its ATA cable and power cable (may be tricky, but with some patience it'll work) and wait a minute or two. Then plug both back in, close the door, and start the G4 back up again. See what happens. Assuming its the actual Zip drive that's screwed and not that Zip disk.
What format type did you format the Zip disk to?

Here is the solution for anyone else who comes across this problem, you ready for this? Haha... just shut down the Mac and wait a few minutes prior to turning it back on, problem solved [img]smile.gif[/img]
Thank you Lars, if that didn't work I would have tried your idea next.
