Sabrent external floppy reader is asking me to format my floppy disk. how can a format it without deleting my files on floppy disk?

Your floppy disk drive may be defective. Also, Some floppy drives are manufactured differently. Your best bet is to find another floppy drive to read your floppy disk. You can try to take it to the nearest computer store and ask them to read it for you. If they can read it at the computer store? The Sabrent drive you received if bad. If they cannot read it the floppy is bad. If the floppy is bad you can try to download free data recovery software to attempt to recover your data, files etc. Good luck

I have lost my floppy drive driver UF0002, I like to have that back so I can use my external floppy drive

You should not have to have a floppy disk driver as the machine (IBM format) recognizes the floppy drive upon boot up. Go into your BIOS setup and be sure that the floppy drive is turned on. It is always recognized as Drive A: or Drive B: Those two designations is reserved for floppy drives in the Basic Input Output System, reguardless if your machine came with an attached FloppyDrive.

You need to format the disk in drive G before using it. Then when I click ok it says cannot be formatted.

the internal floppy drive is ALWAYS drive A: be very careful you're not trying to format something (drive G:?) you shouldn't be. Perhaps your drive G: is a dvd or cd drive...or more likely a usb drive. Formatting the wrong drive is a bit catastrophic in terms of data loss.
Hope this helps.

The floppydrive always says the disk is not formatted. when I try to format the disk it won't do it. Can't get this thing to work.

Windows XP "natively" supports this "plug-and-play" USB device.
So, if it is "dead", search eBay for "external USB floppy" and buy a replacement.

I have a USB portable diskette external floppy drive. It is new. It is supposed to work by simply plugging the in teh usb. When I try to use it, it always tells me to format the disk. i of course, do not...

Try different and empty disk, then format it, when you can open it after you format it, then your first disk is damaged.

If still persist, then clean the drive using floppy drive cleaner, it should work.

Same problem with my MPF82E

You see floppy drives are pretty old technology compared to the Vista environment which is the latest. Your floppy external drive will most likely run better in the Windows XP environment along with the necessary drivers on device manager under control panel...and those drivers you can also download. Am sure it will work better with windows 98 or XP.

Thanks & Kind Regards

Asking to format

If this is a new floppy then its advisable to format it.

But if it has been formated before and the message still comes on then ignore it.

Also if you're denied access (Copy or Read) to the floppy then please reinstall the drivers and the floppy drive again using the installation manual

HD format

Hi, Your idea is basically correct. Other alternatives are: 1. Boot from and run Basic MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in the FDD of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 2. Run MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in a CD in the CD ROM of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 3. Use an external enclosure to connect the IDE & power connections of the HDs to a USB port of another working Windows PC. Is is similar to your idea but you need not open up the 2nd PC nut would require the interface device. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
