SOURCE: driver for an external compaq floppy drive

Am not familiar with the model but Compaq would be your best source...support and downloads....if not, and you will need to poke around.....there is an absolutely phenomenal free driver site in Russia that has (personal opinion) virtually every driver ever made in every version. All free. You can also try the add/remove hardware auto detect and point it to Microsoft...you might get lucky. The only other solution is to query the internet with your model number and the words driver behind it. Hope this helps....Tango.

SOURCE: mac won't recognize usb drive

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.

Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
For MAC users I am sorry but apart from the above steps that is all I can offer.

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 am using a Mac Pro. My SmartDisk Titanium Edition Will not read a double sided floppy disk. It will read a regular floppy disk. What can i do?


Windows XP "natively" supports this "plug-and-play" USB device.
So, if it is "dead", search eBay for "external USB floppy" and buy a replacement.
