Usually your local Fry's, Staples, Office Depot could do the job for you (or even a local PC Tech).
Good luck!

Imation 11795 driver WindowsXP


IMATION stopped making the "LS-120" (Laser Servo) drive many years ago, when USB-interface memory-sticks became cheaper & faster. Imation did have parallel-port device-driver software for Windows 95/98/ME, but never updated them for Windows NT/2000/XP.

Instead, disassemble the case, and you will find an IDE-interface Imation LS-120 drive inside. Connect the same "smaller" 4-pin power-connector that used to connect to a 1.44 Mbyte 3.5-inch diskette, set the "master/slave" jumper, and connect an 80-pin IDE ribbon-cable, and connect the other end of the ribbon-cable to an IDE socket on the motherboard.

You might consider downloading a Linux LiveCD (such as Knoppix), boot to it, and see if Knoppix detects the LS-120 when connected to the legacy computer via parallel port. Make sure that the parallel port is enabled in the BIOS. From there, you can transfer the content from the disks to a flashdrive or external hard drive. My assumption is that you want to retrieve the data that are on these disks. In most cases this ancient hardware should be deprecated once data retrieval is complete. From my experience, the Knoppix DVD is more compatible than the CD version.

I have a very old Imation superdisk drive, 9" by 6" size. And I can't find a driver to download


If it is the "internal" Imation SuperDisk drive, then set the drive's "master/slave" jumper (just like you would set the jumper on a disk-drive or CD/DVD drive), and connect it to one of the IDE ribbon-cable connectors (which usually connect disk/CD/DVD drives to the motherboard).

No additional drivers are required, in the above configuration.

Apparntly I have DRLS120 SUPER DISK DRIVERS ON MY COMPUTER AND I CAN'T VIEW MY 2HD 1.44 MB FLOPPYS USING MY 31/2" FLOPPY DRIVE. How do I remove these drivers so that I can use my floppy drive?


If functioning correctly, the hardware of the Imation LS-120 devices can read/write 1.44MB diskettes, using "magnetic" hardware, and can use the built-in laser to read/write the proprietary 120MB "SuperDisk" diskettes.

What problem do you have?

How about taking the diskettes to a friend's computer, along with a USB memory-stick, and copying files from the diskettes to the memory-stick?

Define "no tworks"?
When you insert a disk, do you hear it spinning?
If it does spin, does it transfer any data from the disk into the computer?

Flasyh drive problem


It seems that it's about to "die".
So, my recommendation is that you buy another flash-drive,
and copy all the files from "old" to "new",
and then take a hammer to destroy the old drive (and the data on it).

My computer has such a drive (120 Mbytes/disk).

As a "random act of kindness", I will read them, and burn the files onto a CD-R. Reply to this message, if you wish to proceed.
