I have a HP Compaq dc5100 MT Windows XP Professional. Device manager says that the floppy drive is working properly. The problem is I can locate the external bay for the floppy drive. The CD/DVD...


The specs on this unit do not show a FDD. If you see it in the Device Manager, It means that it is enabled in the BIOS. You can disable if you wish.

You can install a FDD in one of the 3.5 slots. the drives cost lesthan $20.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Where can you use a sd card on a dell inspiron 530


The 530 doesn't have a built in port for the card but you could find one at www.surpluscomputers.com that will read multiple types of cards. Have you tried plugging a USB cable from the camera to the computer and downloaded the info that way?

Disc slot


If you are speaking of a 3.5 floppy, you won't find one on the newer systems. 3.5 Floppys are out of date and are rarely put into new sytems. If you have data that you would like to retrieve from some old floppy disks, you will need to go to a computer store ie: Bestbuy or CompUSA and get an external USB Floppy drive. Then you can save them to your hard drive and then burn them to a CD or DVD.

Hope this helps you.

Where is the insert for the floppy disc


The floppy disk may or may not be installed in section 5. They started eliminating floppy drives some years ago, when USB flash started to become popular.

5
FlexBay drive panel
Can contain an optional floppy drive or optional Media Card Reader. For information on using the Media Card Reader, see Using a Media Card Reader (Optional).

If your question was more basic than this, and you have a floppy drive, then you just insert the floppy into the slot. It doesn't open. Look for the arrow on the floppy disk, if it doesn't go in one way, turn it over.

Card reader


This type of card reader is powered from the usb table so you will need to look for a usb header on the motherboard to plug it into. The header will be a 10 pin header ( but pin 10 is missing! ) so it is top row 4 pins, bottom row 5 pins, from left the connections are red, white,green,black, & no connection.
The power plug used to connect the card reader is the power plug normally used to power the floppy disk drive. come back to if problems still persist ? compdoctor2005@btinternet.com

Floppy disks are formatted but when inserted it tells me it isn't formatted and I cannot format then because all the information will be lost. Can you help?


This often happens when the Floppy Disk drive head is faulty or out of azimuth. Usually when this happens you need to replace the froppy disk drive unit, which is not an expensive part.
If you do not want to take apart your PC to change the internal FDD, you can also buy an external USB floppy drive, in this case ensure you have a free USB port on your computer.
Here is USB external FDD:
External Floppy Disk Drive - Black
Here is internal one:
1.44MB Floppy Disk Drive

Imstalling internal card reader


Well, installing an internal card reader without a spot on the motherboard, is a little hard to do. I would suggest buying an external card reader. They are a little cheaper, and a lot easier to setup and use, since they just connect to a USB port which all computers have.
