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.

I have a external usb smartdisck fdusb-tmm. my mac book pro is not reading it


Mac OS X "natively" supports the SmartDisk.
So, if it does not work, it is "dead".
Search on eBay for "external USB floppy" to buy a replacement.

Copying files from Floppy Drive to External HDD.

01. Ensure that both Floppy drive and External HDD are configured properly in the machine.

02. Sometimes if virus affected the files of floppy drive, will not copy the full files.

03. Close the small led in the floppy top right side and check once again.

04. In start program, type coimmand and the dos prompt with Drive will appear.

05. keyin Dir A: and see it reads all files.

06. There also it gives error, you cannot copy these files to External HDD.

07. Try to use some other floppier which is already formatted.

08. Ohrr solution is just copy all these files from the floppy drive on to C: and copy the same files after creating a folder in C Drive.

09. Check the Interlink cable is also working fine.

10. If the problem not solved, please call authorized system service engineer to sort out the issue..
