    Zip drives still buggy in 10.1

    Thanks for the info, testuser! I did try reformatting the DOS zip disk in OS X, as a DOS disk. That did NOT fix the problem. However, when I reformatted the same disk as a mac disk, things started working again-- could copy files to it, etc.

    Zip drives still buggy in 10.1

    I'm generally psyched about 10.1, now that I can connect my Palm and digital camera I've switched over for real. When I played with 10.0.4 I noticed that I could cause a Kernel panic just by putting a PC-formatted zip disk into my zip drive (and I don't recommend this!) Happily this...

    File sharing needs to be fixed

    I have several complaints about the apple currently handles file sharing in OS X, but I'll start with the stuff that was supposed to work: I can turn on file sharing, appletalk, etc. on my OS X beta imac, but when I connect to it from an OS 9 mac by using the "Server IP address..." option in...
