Floppy drives are very cheap and easy to replace, another option, you might consider if you have a USB slot is to purchase an external floppy drive.

External's cost a little bit more but they are portable and you don't have to open the computer to install them.

It doesn't works


Does it work, if you install the disk-drive into a computer?
If not, then the drive is "dead", and needs to be replaced.

Does it work with Word 2010


I don't understand your question.

Normally a device (your floppy drive) is not operated by an application (Word 2010), rather, the device is operated by your operating system. I presume your operating system is some version of Windows and I presume your floppy is a USB device. That being the case, when you attach your floppy to your computer, the operating system identifies it as a resource. When you open your application (Word 2010), one of the 'save' options should be your floppy drive. If that drive doesn't show up directly, you may select it from a list of devices offered by Windows through save window that appears when you click SAVE..

The direct answer to your quesiton is ... there should be no reason to think the drive can not be used with the application. You can save (a document) to any device that is available to your computers operating system, even those shared through other computers on your network.

If I missed the ball, please clarify your question. If I did hit the mark, please remember a favorable evaluation for this response will be appreciated.

This can be tow thing, one the drive is not receiving enough power from your USB port, try unplugging any addtional USB devices connected to the PC, if this doesn't work try a powered USB hub. Second the floppy disk is faulty or the drive itself is faulty.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.

I applied samsung sfd-321b floopy disc. but it doesn't work. the green light is on. But I cannot find on my PC. How can I solve the problem.


Hi,

If the green light is constantly on then the ribbon cable has been fitted the wrong way around.

To fix some ribbon cables have a twist in them this side goes to the floppy drive and not the motherboard. The red line on the ribbon cable corresponds to number 1 on the drive itself.

Hope this helps!

Need a new one


Any brand name floppy drive will work just fine. Does not have to be the exact same model or model number.

You can pick these up at either any computer distributor online (www.newegg.com , www.tigerdirect.com , other ones out there) or almost at any place that sells computer related devices (walmart, best buy, frys, local small computer shop). The plugs/pins are all the same in the back of the floppy, so it is completely interchangeable.
