Question about Toshiba - Floppy disk drive - external - floppy disk - 1.44 MB - USB - black (739542) Floppy Drive

1 Answer

Need a USB converter for some serial thing

Needed an external floppy disk drive for my laptop and found a Toshiba on craigslist. After I drove 70 miles round trip to pick it up, I've realized that it's got some sort of serial port thing (I'm hoping somebody will know what it's called) and not a USB. What the heck? It looks new -- how old can it be? What kind of converter can I use on it?

Appreciate any help.

Dynex puts out a usb to serial adapter can be bought at best buy for somewhere around 15.00 you will need the drivers from the cd to make it work and then will probably have to set the port it is looking for that should be all you need

Teac external floppy disc drive will not format floppy disc


U need an interface, if u want to use the "34 pin out" from floppy disk unit, to the "24 pin in" connector jack, inside KN 1000 main board.
U can get this interface unit bboard from "the KN 1000 floppy disk drive unit".

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.

Nexxtech usb external floppy won't eject


Look for a very small round hole in the plastic "cabinet" near the media slot (on one side) and gently poke a small paper clip (unbent, of course, first) in to manually eject the disk.
