If you call TEAC and can verify the date of purchase they should be able to RMA it and replace it.

Wont take disc after using first one


Floppy drives have a floating head that can get dust on the head, reader, mechanism. Try a floppy disk cleaner or you can try to blow out the dust using compressed air.

My floppy drive does not seem to recognise that a floppy disk is inserted...after inserting a floppy disk and trying to run it ......it says ' please insert disk into drive A' ? any advice would be much...


Hello there!

Well, you 1st should check is your floppy drive properly insterted into your pc mb. Open your hardware check the joins on your FD(floppy drive) if thats ok, assemble the box. Next move is to check is your FD even enabled in ps BIOS. Open your bios acess general settings, and you should find setting flopy disc 1,28~ enable/disable.

After that if you still experience problems you should thinking about usage of usb pen drives, since floppy drive systems are really outdated, as I know there never been any drivers for that system , so those steps should solve your problem.

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

I am unable to access my teac FD-05PUW usb floppy disk disk drive it come up in my computer as disk B but when I try to assess the drive it tells me the disk is not formatted but when I attempt to format...


Solution 1.
Try using the Installation CD or Utiltity CD that came with your drive to format it.

If theres a Utility CD then install it on your computer and try formating it from the utility application.

If the windows error messages still persist then try formating it with the windows default options or NTFS option.

How is info stored on a floppy disk


Hi,
This is how it works,

  1. The computer program passes an instruction to the computer hardware to write a data file on a floppy disk, which is very similar to a single platter in a hard disk drive except that it is spinning much slower, with far less capacity and slower access time.
  2. The computer hardware and the floppy-disk-drive controller start the motor in the diskette drive to spin the floppy disk.The disk has many concentric tracks on each side. Each track is divided into smaller segments called sectors, like slices of a pie.

  3. A second motor, called a stepper motorrotates a worm-gear shaft (a miniature version of the worm gear in a bench-top vise) in minute increments that match the spacing between tracks.The time it takes to get to the correct track is called "access time." This stepping action (partial revolutions) of the stepper motor moves the read/write heads like the jaws of a bench-top vise. The floppy-disk-drive electronics know how many steps the motor has to turn to move the read/write heads to the correct track.

  4. The read/write heads stop at the track. The read head checks the prewritten addresson the formatted diskette to be sure it is using the correct side of the diskette and is at the proper track. This operation is very similar to the way a record player automatically goes to a certain groove on a vinyl record.
  5. Before the data from the program is written to the diskette, an erase coil (on the same read/write head assembly) is energized to "clear" a wide, "clean slate" sector prior to writing the sector data with the write head. The erased sector is wider than the written sector -- this way, no signals from sectors in adjacent tracks will interfere with the sector in the track being written.
  6. The energized write head puts data on the diskette by magnetizing minute, iron, bar-magnet particles embedded in the diskette surface, very similar to the technology used in the mag stripe on the back of a credit card. The magnetized particles have their north and south poles oriented in such a way that their pattern may be detected and read on a subsequent read operation.
  7. The diskette stops spinning. The floppy disk drive waits for the next command.
On a typical floppy disk drive, the small indicator light stays on during all of the above operations.


and if i helped u solve ur problem in any way...please help me by clicking on the fixya rating..

3.5 inch movable shield on disk stuck in Teac 3.5 external drive


Take the drive from the enclosure, remove the top cover from the floopy drive, you should be able to GENTLY remove the floppy shield. Try not to stress the heads or wiring inside of drive. The floppy shield should come out the front.

My floppy drive makes a rathling sound when turn on


well fistly floppy are old technology and they naturally make a sound when accessing files. however the sound get noisy and irritating when you try to access floppy disks that have developed bad sectors (physical damaged, viral damage, dusty etc)

if your floppy drive makes noise even with brand new disks then it would have accummulated dusts on its magnetic reading head the solution is using cleaning floppies which are becoming less available in shops these days (but are still there). Or if you up to practicall thing open and clean up the read/write head manually. dont worry the thing is close to what the radio cassette head look-alike.

REPAIR FLOPPY DRIVE


There are a few different applications that can aid you in doing this. Here is one. http://www.accurite.com/AAD.html Most often than not, the heads will not be realigned properly with such software, and the cost of purchasing the mechanical tools to do it manually and the time and energy it takes outweigh the cost of just buying a new drive. If you are having read/write problems, and an inexpensive head cleaner (http://pc-extras.com/prods/cl35ck.html) does not solve the problem, I would recommend replacement.
