TEAC floppy drive won't work with Vista Home Premium

Three months ago when I bought a new Compaq Presario, I bought a TEAC model FD-05PUW external floppy drive. It installed like a charm, worked perfectly. Yesterday I bought a new Gateway computer and it REFUSES to install or work. The doofuses at Gateway tell me I need to download a driver made especially for TEAC that will work with Vista Home Premium, but I can't find the download. Any ideas? Thanks.

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.

Solution 1.
Try using the Installation CD or Utiltity CD that came with your drive to format it.

If theres a Utility CD then install it on your computer and try formating it from the utility application.

If the windows error messages still persist then try formating it with the windows default options or NTFS option.

Need vista driver for FD-05PUB teac usb floppy drive

You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.
