Question about Teac Floppy Drive 235HF Internal Floppy Drive

1 Answer

3.5 Floppy drive

I have a TEAC 255HF that was working fine until I Upgraded from Windows 98 SE to Windows XP. the Operationg system is the only thing I have changed. The system recognizes the Drive but tells me every disk (wether new or written via Win 98) is full and I can not format New disk. My device manager in Windows XP shows no problems with the device and says it is working properly. I have used new cables, different Drives that work in Non XP computers. I have uninstalled the drive and drivers and reinstalled them to no avail. Is ther3e a known problem with XP and internal Floppy drives???? Help

Re: 3.5 Floppy drive

Hi, i have installed thousands of Internal Floppy drives and there aint no conflicts between win/95/98/me and xp. all discs should be compatible, unless you took it from a apple machine for example. did it work when you put in a new floppy drive? all the best John

Hello! I have a Floppy Drive FD-235HG-C332 manufacturer TEAC. I want to know what data capacity (Operations modes) has my device: 720Kb, or 1Mb, or 1,44Mb, or 1,6Mb, or 2Mb. There are jampers, placed...

Your TEAC FDD (floppy disk drive) is a Tri-mode device (720 KB, 1.2 MB, and 1.44MB)

The "235" part of the model number indicates the drive's form factor (size) is 3.5 inches.
The "HG" part of the model number indicates that the FDD is a Tri-mode device, with the 3 modes
given above.

The manufacturer notes that it has no jumpers, but every FDD I've ever seen has jumpers for
bus master/slave selection. Either master or slave will work.

Here's the manufacturer's web site URL for your TEAC floppy disk drive:

The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here:
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:

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.
