Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?


I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

Is there a power light on the BT144?


light only appears when accessing data from disk. Check that you have right drivers... that is it.

Bought a Bytecc external floppy drive for my xp cant get it to work i put the disc in but nothing happens


Look to see if it shows up in your device manager. If there, delete and reinsert it from scratch. See if the drive hums once when you plug it in (recognizing it). USB cable might be broken inside if it does not register.

Software for 500GB


I don't think BYTECC sells complete external hard drives. But they do sell the enclosures. People buy the enclosures and install a hard drive in them and, now you have a working external hard drive. I have don't this before, but I have never used BYTECC before. You can download the drivers for there enclosures at there website:

http://www.byteccusa.com/

They have several different versions, Just pick the correct one, hopefully the enclosure has some markings or a sticker identifying the model.
