Re: floppy drive

This problem is your motherboard setting in bios. Change the bios by press del or f2 or f10 and go to bios setup and select the floppy drive which u have 1.44mb as "A" drive and save it and restart ur computer and once again the same problem comes, change the battery 3.3v in ur motherboard

To the best of my knowledge these things only come with a general leaflet telling you not to immerse them in water and so forth.

It's a floppy disk drive. It should just work.

Just bought a teac fd-05pub usb portable diskette drive. i have a dell computer with windows vista. when i pluged it in the device was installed, however the power light comes on for a few seconds then...


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.

I applied samsung sfd-321b floopy disc. but it doesn't work. the green light is on. But I cannot find on my PC. How can I solve the problem.


If the green light is constantly on then the ribbon cable has been fitted the wrong way around.

To fix some ribbon cables have a twist in them this side goes to the floppy drive and not the motherboard. The red line on the ribbon cable corresponds to number 1 on the drive itself.

Hope this helps!

Most floppy disks that you will still be able to find are 1.44MB DSDD disks, which a 720k drive will not be able to read. Check the capacity rating of the disks. Also the 720k drive has got to be at least 20+ years old, and the read/write heads may simply not work anymore. 1.44MB flopyy drives are literally a dime a dozen, you can probably pick one up at your local thrift store or electronics recycler for less than the bus fare it took to get there.

I installed floppy drive in a desktop that never had a floppy drive, but I can't get A:/ to appear in My Computer. Do I need some sort of driver?

Hi there.

No you don't need a driver, as they run on controllers. If the system never had a floppy drive before, then you will probably need to turn the controllers on in the BIOS.

When you turn the system on, keep pressing F2, or Del. This will open your BIOS settings screen. The first screen you should be looking at, tells you the time and date. It should also allow you to change any floppy drives you may or may not have. If you can't change them, then you may need to have a look through all you settings, and find the one called FDC (Floppy Drive Controller). Make sure it's Enabled. Once you have done this, save and exit. The system will reboot, and you should now have access to the floppy drive.

If you need me to clarify anything, just reply to this post. If it works, please rate it.

My floppy drive tells me to insert a disk when I try to use it

Sounds like you have a bad drive or the disk is corrupted. Did you try a different floppy disk to see if the drive is functioning?

Well, the first step in any problem of this nature is to narrow down the problem. We have three main things in effect here, and we need to know which one has the problem before we can fix it. First, the disk itself. Try other disks and make sure the disk is not faulty. Second, the usb ports. Try other devices in your usb ports to ensure they are installed and configured properly. If all of those work, it is narrowed down to the floppy drive itself. If it does not work on any pc's at all, then it definately has a problem, and I would suggest contacting SmartDisk technical support.
