Help ! : impossible to read the table partition of my Zip Disk

I work with debian and I use a Zip 100 Usb drive. Now I cannot read any Zip Disk and when I try to format again them the message is : "I cannot read: bad block 0" .
So I tryed to use Fdisk, sfdisk, parted, mformat, dd etc end all answer :" I cannot read disk, I cannot open device ....bad address."
I wonder : It is possible to open and format my Zip again ?.

I open The Others Zip in the same partition : /dev/sda4 .

Is there a software for Linux/Windows that can "unhinge " my Zip ?.
