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.

Solved!

1. Install ZIP100 as a hard drive (not like a floppy disk).
2. Install Danis driver:
BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /!BIOS /A:1 /I /V
BASEDEV=DANIATAP.FLT /EJ /V
3. After installing the disk in the wildcard, use the LVM command - lvm /rediscoverprm
4. A disk letter will appear and you can work with it
5. Before extracting the disk, use the command - eject drive:

Thank you all for participating in solving the problem!
