I hope I'm remembering this correctly (this happened probably ten years
ago or so): I had an internal Zip drive which showed this behaviour as
soon as I mounted it, but it was very simple to fix.
My Zip drive had some sort of glue tape all around it at the front; this
tape was bended and locked some very small lever which ejected the disk:
unbending the tape was enough to get the drive working properly again.
