You need a DOS driver for your ZIP.  Select your device here then download the DOS driver.

What error message do you get? . . Is the Zip drive recognized in Windows?  Can you read other files on the Zip disc? . . Have you checked to see if the disc is locked?

Make sure that the Iomega Guest.exe is running and has idenitified a drive letter for your Zip drive.  If you can't copy but can read files on the Zip post again.

Guest will work in DOS, the floppy that comes with the Zip and the Parallel to SCSI connector should both support this provided your PC will run DOS.  What operating system is on the host PC?  If you have an NT based system you may need to think about using a virtual machine like Virtual PC 2007 to run DOS for you.
