Does the product come with A/C adapter, drive-to-PC connector cable(s) and driver disk?


Please note the Mitsumi D509V2 Floppy drive is an internal drive and will not need an AC adapter. It should connect to the output connector of the PC power supply. These use an old 34 pin cable and you have to be careful if your PC motherboard can support this connection. Most of the present motherboards have high speed SATA interface. Also it may be hard to find drivers for Windows7 and above. So unless you have a WindowsXP PC you will not be able read it.

If there is any specific information you need please provide your question in the comments field.

My laptop says no bootable device insert disk what is wrong?


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Computre not reconizing my my book HDD 1TB usb 2.0 but it does power up but when you try to plug the usb cord in nothing happens on the computre it dont even show up under devicer manager


Try an new USB cord. If nothing happens, then most like scenario is the controller card went out on the case housing the hard drive. Easy way to test is open the case, remove the hard drive and conect it to your pc or take it to a repair shop to hac=ve the hard drive tested. Usually, shops won't chare for this. If hard drive is good, pick you up a new external hard drive case.$20 or less online.

When my computer starts it goes to a black screen and says "no bootable device jnsert boot disk and press any key" what can i do


Normal 0

This error message - "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" means -

The PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive.
Check the floppy drive and remove and floppy disk.
If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it is a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect the hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Is there some adaptor to adapt a floppy drive with an IDE style connector to either type of USB connection? Be it a regular USB 2.0 or an internal type USB connection on a motherboard (preferable)? I...


Not that I have ever heard of. You could get a Floppy drive bracket and remove the floppy from the case and install it that way. It's just a regular Floppy connected to an adapter inside that case that turns it into a Portable. Like the stand alone backup drives everyone buys today. You remove the hard drive from the casing and it mounts like any other drive.

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

4600c not operating system error message bootmanager missing


You might have to go to the BIOS of your computer to ensure your drive is recognised. Once it shows there, make sure you change the Drive as your first boot device.
