       Disk write-protection is done by software for IOMega's JAZ
       and ZIP drives. jaztool and ziptool  make  these  features
       available for Linux. Before performing any protection mode
       changes, it is checked that <device> is actually a JAZ  or
       ZIP  drive  and  that no partition of the inserted disk is
       currently mounted.


       -e     Eject media.

       -p     Spin down drive.

       -ro    Make disk read-only. If the current  mode  is  pro­
              tected  by a password, you will be prompted for it.

       -rp    Make disk read-only and protect  with  a  password.
              The  maximum length of a password is 33 characters.

       have to reformat the disk in order to remove write-protec­

       -rw    Remove any protection from the disk. If the current
              mode  is  protected by a password, you are prompted

       -ld    Lock the drive door so the disk cannot  be  ejected
              (drive must be mounted).

       -ud    Unlock the drive door

       -m     Mount  the  <device>  on  [mountdir], then lock the
              door (like -ld).

       -u     Unmount the <device>.
