URL Rewrite for dynamic urls? (zencart migration)

I’ve been working on finding a solution to this for several hours.  Searching and testing have not yielded any progress...please help!

I run a store that has been moved from zencart over to magento.  There are many old links that I would like to redirect to their relevant new links.  However, I can’t figure out how to do this. An example of an old link would be:;=5

This would point to a product.

I’ve tried a custom rewrite with the following parameters, but it always just loads the main page.

id path-> Product_1
request path -> index.php?main_page=index&cPath;=5
target path-> product-1.html
redirect-> 301

What else can be done here to get this to work?  Is it the variables in the url?
