I bought this not knowing it does not have a windows 7 driver. Is there any way to get one?

Windows 7 should include support for all hardware that was available when Windows 7 was "frozen" and "released to manufacturing" (i.e., millions of copies of the DVD were made from the "master").

So, a device as "simple" as floppy-drive with a USB-interface _should_ be supported by Windows 7.

Also, try
to see if Windows Update can offer a device-driver for download.

Light will not come on when floppy is inserted

being a dos was not designed with USB in mind i would bet that is your problem. I doesn't recognize that it is there and therefore doesn't turn on the port.

My floppy drive tells me to insert a disk when I try to use it

Sounds like you have a bad drive or the disk is corrupted. Did you try a different floppy disk to see if the drive is functioning?

Floppy drive not recognize floppy

it is possible the floppy has been corrupted or it was formated under a diferent OS. 
so you must format it to be able to use it with your OS.

The error means 3 things:

1. Files format of the files saved on the Floppy disk is not readable on the OS or does not comply with the file format of the OS. So you really need to format it.

2. The floppy disk is brand new and you need to format it first.

3. The floppy disk is not working. Try a known working floppy disk.

Nexxtech External Floppy Driver Problem

Normally windows will install any driver for a usb floppy drive automatically. If it needs one. I'm surprised that it hasn't just worked by plugging it in as there cheap floppy drives over purchased have all just worked without the need to install drivers on win xp and higher. Remember you won't see the drive appear under my computer until it has a disc inserted in it though.

External a drive

Make sure there is nothing inside before inserting a new disk.

Also, try to get one of those disk drive head cleaning disk and run it.
