Question about Sabrent External Floppy Drive

Running windowsXP pro sp3 ids TEAC floppy in CP sys but no A drive in explorer

I am running Windows XP pro and connect a Sabrent ext floppy drive to a direct USB port. The drive shows up in control panel system as a TEAC drive but does not come up as an accessible letter drive in windows explorer! I have the same problem with larger than 2GB thumb drives. I have been doing some research on this in conjunction with service pak 3 install.

I too am having a problem with the Sabrent floppy drive.
I'm running a windows 7, 64bit system, everything installed ok,
but I kept getting a "install disk" message every time I tried to
access the drive. (I did have a disk installed.)
Any thoughts?
Thanks

SOURCE: Did not receive any instructions with the floppy USB external

I would expect that you simply plug the usb cable flat end into the usb port of your computer after Windows has been booted in.

The floppy drive should self install if you are having a current windows xp on your pc. You will see A: drive when you click on My Computer.

Hope this helps. Please rate the solution.

We have a TEAC FD-05PUB external floppy drive that we are unable to run - system is Windows xp - we can connect to other PCs and it works fine. Thought perhaps it was the drivers but unable to located any...


The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here: http://goo.gl/BvTcV).
Make sure your Windows XP installation is completely up to date, as Windows Updates often contain driver updates as well as system updates. If this still doesn't work (or your system is already completely updated), there are some additional troubleshooting options here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283658.

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

Need vista driver for FD-05PUB teac usb floppy drive


You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)
