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.
