Zip-100 disks not recognized - XP problem??

I have an old Inspiron 7500 that originally shipped with W98. The Dell (bay drive) ZIP-100 drive that I don't use very much recently stopped recognizing disks. A while back I installed XP and recently, XP SP1, but I can't remember if I ever used the drive after installing XP. My disks work fine on my newer computer that shipped with XP originally (but with an old ZIP 100 internal drive), and worked fine on W98.
 
When I insert the disk, it searches twice for the disk, then stops. It doesn't seem to recognize that the disk is in place. I am running the newest Iomegaware driver, but now help. Thoughts??

Did you ever think the drive is bad.

That's what I am trying to determine. Has anyone else had a similar problem, and was it hardware or software related?
