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.

Connect it. Any "plug-and-play" device with a USB interface should be supported by Windows XP/Vista/7/8.

I have a Sony 2X FDD model MPF88E-UA. My vista HP doe not read the disc, tells me to inialize the disc??? I've looked for drivers and can't find??? Terri 732.558.8388

Hi Terri,
Try changing your operating system from Vista to Windows XP; you can partition your disc to have another OS alternative. People have reported a lot of glitches with the Vista Environment..I am more comfortable with good old XP. Also check your device manager under control panel.

Cheers & Kind Regards

Same problem with my MPF82E

You see floppy drives are pretty old technology compared to the Vista environment which is the latest. Your floppy external drive will most likely run better in the Windows XP environment along with the necessary drivers on device manager under control panel...and those drivers you can also download. Am sure it will work better with windows 98 or XP.

Thanks & Kind Regards

Can't load SmartDisk FDUSB=TM2 on Vista Premium 64

Windows Vista carries a lot of glitches ....we need to give it more time as it improves. The XP environment works better with older technologies like the smart disk floppy drive. My advice is for you to partition your hard disk and place Windows XP on one side and still keep the Vista on the other. That way you can have both OSystems and still be able to use your floppy drive. Alternatively you can upgrade and use a flash drive storage or DVD/CD. They are newer technology which are more compatible with Vista.

Cheers & Kind Regards

Need WinXP driver


Windows XP has the necessary drivers for a USB floppy drive. Try loading a diskette in the drive.

Hope it helps.

Please check If your CD drive is detected on BIOS, if yes then Put a Windows XP bootale CD (checkout for the Service Pack) and choose boot from CD in the BIOS and go for "repair option" after the Agreement "I Agree-press F8" session. complete the installation then try installing the printer.
