[Bug 13554] Re: does not poll ZIP drive for media changes

So, to summarize:

 * hal knows nothing about the ZIP drive.
 * The system does not know about the ZIP drive after a clean boot.
 * The kernel recognizes the drive properly and you can manually mount it after 'modprobe ppa'

Is that correct? If so, does hal see the ZIP drive after

  sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/20hal restart

? If so, then the problem is somewhere in the hal/udev communication.

Also, can you please do a clean boot, then do

  sudo udevmonitor -e

then do 'sudo modprobe ppa' on another console, and copy&paste the
udevmonitor output here? (Assuming that there is no /dev/* device for
your ZIP drive before loading ppa).

Thank you!
