IDK your financial situation but a new one was only about $15-20 for a mid priced when I last bought one. I haven't had a lot of luck with them in the last few years. They seem to work for a short time then only seem to read disk. And a lot of times that is difficult too. I wonder if anyone has ever tried an external FDD? Maybe these would work better but I'd ask someone who has tried one first!

I am using a Mac Pro. My SmartDisk Titanium Edition Will not read a double sided floppy disk. It will read a regular floppy disk. What can i do?


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.

When I plugged in the drive for the first time, Windows 7 immediately (within milliseconds) informed me that it was ready for use without spending any time installing a driver. But when a floppy is...


Have not been able to find any drivers for this device for Win7-64, I works fine on pre win7 machines, but under win7 it says that all of my disks need to be formated.

Same problem with my MPF82E


Hi,
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

Floppy


I'm assuming this is on a PC. If so, inserting a floppy will not cause the PC to do anything. (The reasons for this are historical and not important to solving your problem.) You need to open "My Computer", then browse to your A: drive to see the files on the floppy. A handy shortcut to My Computer is to press Windows+E. (Like Ctrl+E, but using the key with the Windows logo on it instead of the Ctrl key.)

No power


Well, the first step in any problem of this nature is to narrow down the problem. We have three main things in effect here, and we need to know which one has the problem before we can fix it. First, the disk itself. Try other disks and make sure the disk is not faulty. Second, the usb ports. Try other devices in your usb ports to ensure they are installed and configured properly. If all of those work, it is narrowed down to the floppy drive itself. If it does not work on any pc's at all, then it definately has a problem, and I would suggest contacting SmartDisk technical support.
