Thanks - I think I have it! (At least as far as Zip disks go...)

If I have Iomega tools running, once I insert the Zip disk into the drive it sees the disk and tags it as an unknown format. For whatever reason this in turn stops OS 9 from showing the  unrecognised disk format screen, and I can open MESA and see the contents of the disk from the MESA "Disk" window.

A bit clunky and the sequencing of turning everything on and inserting disks is important, but once it's up and running MESA works like a charm!

Now I'm off to lie down...

Disabling Iomega tools is definitely important to do while using it this way. Glad it was that simple. Once you get the hang of it, it will become second nature.
