According to this, the motherboard is an ECS MCP61SM-GM

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socketam2/ecsMCP61SM-GM.shtml

it says it has a floppy header onboard for adding a regular 3.5" floppy drive.

you can also find usb floppy drives that you can attach and use when you need without opening the machine.

Try connecting the external device to another computer, to see if can be detected on that computer. If not, then the device itself has a problem.

Otherwise, try connecting your device to a different USB port on your computer.

Also, try some other USB device (camera, memory-stick) in each of your computer's USB ports, to confirm that the USB ports themselves are working.

The external cd drive should be having both CD and DVD options, that is Combo Drive or Super CD Drive where you can write all your data on to the DVD - eitherway it can be done. You can copy the data from DVD / CD on to your toshiba laptop.

Best solution is replace the exisitng laptop to a latet one with Vista option. Will solve your probllm. Otherise try to contact the local authrozed hardware engineer to assist you in solving this problem.

Good Luck.

I installed floppy drive in a desktop that never had a floppy drive, but I can't get A:/ to appear in My Computer. Do I need some sort of driver?


Hi there.

No you don't need a driver, as they run on controllers. If the system never had a floppy drive before, then you will probably need to turn the controllers on in the BIOS.

When you turn the system on, keep pressing F2, or Del. This will open your BIOS settings screen. The first screen you should be looking at, tells you the time and date. It should also allow you to change any floppy drives you may or may not have. If you can't change them, then you may need to have a look through all you settings, and find the one called FDC (Floppy Drive Controller). Make sure it's Enabled. Once you have done this, save and exit. The system will reboot, and you should now have access to the floppy drive.

If you need me to clarify anything, just reply to this post. If it works, please rate it.

Compaq External Floppy Drive


External, parallel port based FDD's are just too darn old and uncommon, and there's no auto-detecting on these things. These things also come with their own power supplies - so make sure the power supply is plugged in or else it ain't gonna get no power - and then you'll need the drivers (which I doubt will be XP compatible).

A USB based external FDD would be a much easier solution!
