The instructions included in HPFSRem to use FDISK will not work with Iomega drives. Follow the instructions included with the drive's OS/2 drivers to format the disk with HPFS. If no such instructions exist, see the Preparing HPFS disks without FDISK page. Also, if you use a SCSI Iomega drive, see the note about SCSI controllers. Certain SCSI controllers (those that require you to use the ADD driver from Iomega) will need a driver to be convinced to format a disk with HPFS.
The drives are:
Tested and works with OAD drivers. The FLT drivers do not work in all cases. If you need to use the FLT drivers, this will be of interest to you. You may also find the OS/2 drivers from Iomega useful.
Still needs to be tested, but uses the same drivers as the Zip, so I suspect it should work about the same. You may find the OS/2 drivers from Iomega useful.
Format disks with HPFS using the instructions included with HPFSRem. These drives may have trouble unless SyQuest's drivers are used.
Tested. All variants seem to work. Some people have had success without SyQuest's drivers.
Tested. Works the same as the EZ135.
Untested. Uses the same drivers as the EZ135, so I suspect it will work.
The drive has been tested on a SCSI controller and works.
The PD drive is a combinatition of a 640MB MO drive and a CDROM. It may require SyQuest's drivers to eject disks. Its own OS/2 drivers will also be needed. The the note about SCSI controllers may also apply to this drive.
The drive is manufactured by Matsushita Electronic for the following companies:
Drives not listed here have not been tested with HPFSRem.
For the greatest compatibility, HPFSRem uses OS/2 API calls to work, so it is not limited to working with the listed drives.
HPFSRem now has support for drives that OS/2 sees as non-removable. This allows drives that connect to IDE and SCSI controllers to be used even if there are no OS/2 drivers for the particular drive. However, the drive must NOT lock disks on its own. Without special drivers, OS/2 software will not be able to lock or unlock a disk. If the drive locks the disk without being told to, you won't be able to remove the disk without a reboot.
