Question about Sony (MPF920-Z/131) Internal Floppy Drive

1 Answer

Stopped working all of a sudden

I am using a Sony MPF920 Z/131 floppy drive and has been working perfectly fine until now. I recently have made some Boot disks and was all going well. The drive is still recognised in Device Manager and appears in My Computer but every time i try to access it, it always states that there is no disk in the drive or it is not ready. The power light is constantly on whether there's a disk in it or not. I even get the same problems with my optical drives. I am wondering if it's something to do with the power supply as recently had a new one fitted and was told that it ain't 100% compatible but closest one they could get hold of. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to get sony 2x fdd external mpf88e/ua/181 to work on windows 8?

Try to use the windows 8 generic floppy drive driver. Legacy hardware is difficult to make work. You might want to see if you can download and install multiple drivers for similar floppy drives and see if one of them works.

External hard drive -help please?


Have you checked it on other pc ? If yes then your hard disk is corrupted you lost partition information but dont worry u can retrieve your data by getbackdata for NTSF. Its able to retrieve about 98% of data or other is Acronis Disc Direct Suite, the same reliable and really working tool to restore information. It really restored ALL files in lost partition
After using these tools just format your hardisk and it will work dont worry
