Hi Roger,

I looked in the extensions folder for the Iomega
driver this morning (when all the trouble happened)
but I couldn't figure out what its name was.

I typed in "iomega" and "zip" (in two separate
searches) into the "find" function and came up empty
except for the desktop icon.

Would you happen to know what the iomega driver would
be called? Maybe the problem is that there's no Iomega
driver anymore in the extensions folder, but I have no
idea how that could have happened.
