This may be a stupid idea but... your zip drive has a full ide interface so you could try attaching it to an IDE to USB adapter and see what the response is.  I have used IDE to USB and SATA to USB adapters to read disks that won't attach to the onboard interfaces.

Wonder if a bootable Linux stick would recognize it?
If possible, a link to where to get and how to make such a stick.

Simplest is probably the DFSee stick downloadable at https://dfsee.com/dfsee/media.php
Whether that has support for the Iomega zip drive, I don't know.
