I have a 5.1-RELEASE installation with an IDE Zip drive (amongst other IDE

# dmesg | grep afd0
afd0: 96MB <IOMEGA ZIP 100 ATAPI> [96/64/32] at ata1-slave PIO0

I installed the eject package ...

# pkg_info | grep eject
eject-1.4           Utility for ejecting media from CD or optical disk drive

But when I try to eject a Zip disk, the following error occurs:

# eject afd0
eject: No such file or directory

Altho the package description indicates that eject only works on optical
media, the man page states "eject is a program to eject removable media from

Should eject work on an IDE Zip drive?
