at the prompt type # format
Run the newfs utility to make a file system on the disk.
# newfs -v /dev/rsdXc

After the file system has been placed on the disk, you can mount it into the UNIX file system
mount /dev/sdXc /mount_point

To check the file system, make sure the disk is not mounted and use the fsck command fsck /dev/rsdXc

" X "represents the sd number shown on your monitor for the drive that contains the working disk.

Hope this works. If it doesnt work then i assume that you should post what unix variant that you are running..

Definitely post back. The best thing to do is run the command "uname -a", and paste the results back here.

Also, what would be helpful is if you run the "dmesg" command, and post that as well.

And what exactly do you want? Do you want to create a new Unix filesystem on the zip? Or do you want to create a MSDOS filesystem? Or would you simply like to read the data on the drive?

The description above sounds somewhat like Solaris, but something tells me you're not running that...

Please post back...
