Solaris > Access the zip / jaz drive (mount zip disk)

by on January 26, 2005 · 1 comment· LAST UPDATED January 26, 2005


The Volume Management daemon, vold, creates and maintains a file system image rooted at root-dir that contains symbolic names for CD-ROM and floppy, ZIP/JAZ, and DVD-ROM devices and other removable devices. Use volcheck command to checks for media in a drive and by default checks all floppy media.

1) Put zip/jaz disk into drive

2) Type command:

# volcheck

3) Change directory to /rmdisk/zip0

cd /rmdisk/zip0
