Chances are the disc has become damaged whilst being stored. It may be that your drive just does not like that particular disc. If this is the case you could ask someone else to try and read the disc for you and transfer the info to a more stable platform like CD or DVD.
If your drive is reading all your other discs without incident I'm affraid it may not look good for your valuable disc. I suggest you start transfering the content of your other zips to CD now.
Look online for a Data Recovery Service near you. They should be able to help with getting your info off a bad disc.
If you feel lucky you can also try the software tool at this link:
It's worth a try
Format on your old Macintosh using standard Mac HFS, then your new Mac will read the files without problems. Reformat the discs if they came pre-formatted for DOS as the filenames won't copy properly and will be very slow to read/write
If your new Mac is FireWire/USB only, then you'll need to track down a USB Zip drive (the 100Mg or 250meg versions will read your discs ok.)
You can only format these drives in mode FAT16 or FAT32. Try to format it in FAT32 mode and let Windows choose the default sectors for you. This is the better solution. As I can see, the operating system recognise your drive that mean the correct driver was loaded. After a new format whith the correct params if your flash drive shows the same thing 0 disk space 0 disk space used, your drive is DEAD. It happens if you had unplug your flash drive whithout stoping it by cliking on the icon in the notification window (near the clock), the icon is mini drive whith a green arrow. Allways unplug the USB devices by this because you have the +5 voltage on this connector and if you don't do this an arcking effect happens betwen your device and the connector.
