I have a Zip 100 drive running on XP Pro. There is one file remaining on a disc and can't either remove the file or format the disc. When it gets to the only remaining file the drive starts making unusual internal sounds. I thought this to be a bad Zip drive, however i tried a 2nd disc and i was able to remove all files and format. Help anyone???

Try running the scan disk. I suppose that if you have a zip drive on XP that you can change the scan to the zip drive? If so, set it to auto fix file system error and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
After doing this, try to format once again. Btw. this is kind of a guess. I have a Win98SE that has a 100 zip drive on it and I know it works on that OS.
My WinXp machine has CD-RW drives.
