There are proper mounts that can be used (but a good tape will work)

You can steal USB power from the USB port :-)

You can put WiFi on it then you can access the Pi with SSH. Just
another option. I wouldn't recommend fighting with the Pi Zero. Just
get e Pi 3 and you will find it quite usable. If you turn off, or
reconfigure the logging and a few other things you can use NFS or
CIFS for the media. I'm doing this with the Atari 8 bit disk drives
(the Pi emulates a disk drive). I'll demonstrate that at Festivus.
