    I have an unusual problem hopefully someone can shed some light on for me, I have an Iomega zip-100 ,with the latest driver called the problem I’m having is upon restart the icon to access it disappears .i have to reinstall it & upon reinstall it detects a previous installation & tells me I need to uninstall before I can apply the new driver .upon shut down & boot up the icon reappears & I can again access the zip.

    It is very annoying to have to reapply each time .

    Any advise please?

    Have been using zip drives for 5 years and worst scenario I have seen is that the icon becomes corrupt,but has never actually disappeared.
    Try tweak ui to rebuild icons or delete shellicons.dll in Systems 32 ,and restart.

    my problem turned out to be simple once i realized that the same letter was assigned to 2 drives.
