When you start your computer, is the floppy drive detected in the BIOS? or is it Enabled in the BIOS? you have to enable the floppy drive in the BIOS for it to be working. Plus can you double check if you inserted the power cable and data cable properly? The cable might be loose. Double check.

You have to enter the BIOS setup utility and change the boot order to first boot device as USB drive or USB device etc..

Hello there Bill,

This takes me back many years. !!!!

It is most odd these days to find people still using Floppy Drives. Are you SURE you want a floppy disc drive ? They cannot store very much at all.

First of all, before you do anything, Open your PC and MAKE SURE you have a socket on it for a floppy drive. !!!!! If necessary get the model and make of the Motherboard and check on its manufacturers website that it has a socket.
THIS IS IMPORTANT as modern computer motherboards DO NOT provide floppy interface sockets. and you cannot run a floppy on them.

Right, the Floppy needs a 34 way cable with connectors both ends
There is no USB connection for a floppy disc drive.
If you bought a floppy and all-in-one card reader item then the usb is for the card reader and NOT for the floppy..

A picture and explanation of it are here

This is what you need to buy. Dont worry it looks long at complicated, it is just that it has extra connectors .

Install the cable in to the motherboard and floppy, Your computer will recognise the floppy automatically and off you go.

Good luck

Where is the insert for the floppy disc

The floppy disk may or may not be installed in section 5. They started eliminating floppy drives some years ago, when USB flash started to become popular.

FlexBay drive panel
Can contain an optional floppy drive or optional Media Card Reader. For information on using the Media Card Reader, see Using a Media Card Reader (Optional).

If your question was more basic than this, and you have a floppy drive, then you just insert the floppy into the slot. It doesn't open. Look for the arrow on the floppy disk, if it doesn't go in one way, turn it over.

I want to reinstall my Y computer but the restore CD does not seem to work. So i tried a new XP cd, but that too could not work as it does not see the SATA hard disk installed. The Bios on the Tecra M9...

Hi, your Windows XP install CD doesn't have SATA drivers for the hard drive included, so it's not able to address your hard drive. You can't disable SATA in the BIOS to make it work since your hard drive is still SATA. You'll need to get a 3.5" floppy disk and drive if your laptop doesn't have one. They make external 3.5" USB floppy drives that will work.

1. download the SATA drivers for your laptop (iastor.sys and inf)
2. copy the drivers to your floppy disk (about 6-7 files)
3. plug the floppy drive into your laptop
4. boot to the Windows XP CD
5. as soon as the installation starts, it asks you to "Press F6 to specify RAID or controller drivers" - Press F6 now
6. When setup asks for it, point it to the floppy drive
7. Installation will continue and find your SATA hard drive

Ta-da! Rock on with your bad self.

Mitsumi 7 in 1 card reader

There are two cnnections required on the back of the card reader.
One is for the Floppy drive. It is flat and wide cable.
The other is a black cable with a smaller connector. This is a USB connector that needs to be plugged into your motherboard.

These USB connections are usually near the bottom right of the motherboard where you connect the power switch and LED lights. They usually have 9 pins. See this link and loko at the third picture so see what i'm talking about.

If you don't have a USB connector on the motherboard.. you'll need to purchase an extension card or an adapter that will plug into a usb outlet on the front of back of your computer.

Best wishes...

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.

Imstalling internal card reader

Well, installing an internal card reader without a spot on the motherboard, is a little hard to do. I would suggest buying an external card reader. They are a little cheaper, and a lot easier to setup and use, since they just connect to a USB port which all computers have.
