ZIP100 & FAT95 ?

I have just installed my scsi zip drive with the software zip100....everything is working fine.

But to be able to read the PC's filesystem,do i need to install Fat95 on top of zip100 ?

Or could i have done away with zip100 and just installed Fat95 ?

Or do i need Crossdos ?

Crossdos should do it. I had a SCSI zip drive a long time ago on my A1200 and had no problems reading PC formatted disks.

I use FAT95 with my IDE Zip drive. Shouldn't make any difference, really. All of these programs work in the same way.

Nice thing amount mountdos is that you don't need to stuff around with mountlists or dosdrivers it's all autodetected.

Use mountdos to create a mountlist with FAT95. The reason is that FAT95 recognises windows long filenames wheras crossdos included with WB3 doesn't.

CrossDOS 7 works with long filenames if you've got that (this wasn't the version given away free with WB).
