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.

Tip

NO BOOTABLE DEVICE


When the computer/laptop 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 inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk.

If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe 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.

Hi,

The below is on the basis that the drive is visible in "Computer"...


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.

Thanks

I need to install a floppy disk drive what's the


Hi,
Instead of opening the computer case, and installing a floppy drive, I would suggest buying a floppy drive with a usb adapter.
No technicals are required and are just plug and play. All you need is an available usb port. However please note that this type is slightly more expensive.
