SOURCE: Memorex external usb floppy disk-drive does not appear or functio

As I understand it the computer recognizes the floppy drive.

Can you read other discs, write to them etc? If not drive is bad

If you can read other discs then your floppy disk is bad

SOURCE: Don't have floppy disk drive but I get floppy diskette se failure

Go to the control Panel > Device Manager > scroll to drives, right click on "A" drive and disable it. You can also go into the computers BIOS settings....usually the Delete key when you see the manufacturers splash screen on boot up. When you are in the BIOS, go to the computer peripherals and disable the A drive if it is listed. Hit F10 and reboot.

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.

Floppy disks are formatted but when inserted it tells me it isn't formatted and I cannot format then because all the information will be lost. Can you help?


This often happens when the Floppy Disk drive head is faulty or out of azimuth. Usually when this happens you need to replace the froppy disk drive unit, which is not an expensive part.
If you do not want to take apart your PC to change the internal FDD, you can also buy an external USB floppy drive, in this case ensure you have a free USB port on your computer.
Here is USB external FDD:
