Question about Iomega Zip 100MB (31714) External ZIP Drive
On the drive the light flashes, I could hear it trying to read the disc but nothing happens.
What type of zip disk are you trying to read? if it is larger than 100MB, the drive will not be able to read it.
can you read other disks? can you see the drive in my computer?
what operating system are you using, and how does does this drive connect to the computer? USB? Firewire?

What we have here, is a failure to read the UMD. Troubleshooting 101, open the UMD door and depress the little black spur sticking up about 1/8" and it is about 3/4" in and to the left. Once your depress the Black spur, You should see the the little disc motor spin and the laser beam light up. Do not stare into the laser. This tells you that at least the laser is lighting and the motor is turning, Now, get a Q-tip and dampen it with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Rub the lens with the dampened q-tip. Use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Look carefully to see if any lint or foriegn obsjects are inside the UMD disc drive. If you see anything, get it out. Look at the white gear in that back to see if anything is on it. Clean it if necessary, I know its very close quarters and hard to do.
I repair PSP's with this problem that do not get fixed after cleaning. I can replace your UMD drive with a full brand new drive for $47 which includes Return shipping. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com if you need further assitance.
