my mac at the office has an internal zip 250. when a disk is inserted the light blinks, you can here it spin up then spin down, but no icon appears on the screen.

its a g4 fresh from apple - but the drive was bought afterwards and installed here at the office

I assume it's ATA/IDE/ATAPI or is it USB. Try the latest drivers from Iomega and be sure all the necessary Apple USB stuff is active if it's USB. It might need a PRAM zap. Zip drives and disk are very fragile devices and tend to be bad more often than operational. Lots of luck.

I always have to use a disk mounting utility, icon never shows up by itself. Did you try that?
