I don't think I ever got it working with just the SYS files. I always had to run GUEST.EXE. Now I have my jrIDE, though, so I haven't actually used my ZIP drive in a long time.

Did you just run guest, or did you have to load the aspippm1.sys driver as well?

Okay... so I've got this combination working now, albeit slowly.

I changed the ASPIPPM1.SYS line to use SPEED=1 and FILE=NIBBLE.ILM and now it's working with the ASPIDISK.SYS driver... the zip disk shows up as drive C:. I'll have to tinker with it a bit more to see if I can get byte access to work, which should in theory since I've done the bidirectional mod to my sidecar.
