I didn't follow this thread from the beginning, so I'm not sure if this 
was ever an issue, or if it has been discussed. But when I used ZIP disks 
some two to three years ago, I had some issues with password-protected and 
read-only disks. I found a solution for that sending raw commands to the 
device using camcontrol. If you're interested, I could try to dig up my 
notes on the matter.

At that time there was no command line utilities I could find that would 
set these bits on the disks.
