Here is the driver you need but I'm not sure it will work with Windows 10. You may need to install using compatibility mode.

I do know the USB versions of the zip drive has no problem under Windows.

"Parallel drives not supported on Win 7 and above."

You may be able to use a VM of XP to access the drive. I'm not sure it will work but there is a webpage describing the procedure.
