Technical questions for the MPC2000xl and the MPC2000

So as the heading states,
The zip drive died & my OS is 1.14, I've already procured a CF reader but have read it won't read it if the OS isn't upgraded to 1.2.
If the stock zip drive is fried (doesn't read it, doesn't want to eject disk), does anyone have an alternative idea to get the OS up to snuff?

Maybe hunt around for another zip or floppy drive & find a zip/flop w/ the 1.2?
I hate wasting money, swore this had 1.2 on it, but everything to do with this purchase has seemed like a fail. ZIP died after a couple weeks, slider doesn't work (Studio+ model so you do want that to utilize effects), & needs a new pad sensor.
Ordered parts from mpcstuff & a akai cf reader out of a later model XL, so I'm getting this thing sooped up, just been 1 thing after another...
Sorry, I just want make beats not catch a beatdown from a bad purchase.

How about update through the SCSI in the back? Would this work?
I would appreciate your time, knowledge, & expertise. Thanks in Advance.
