Need the driver for a SMARTDISK model FDUSB-B2 external floppy disk drive unit for a old Gateway Windows 98 computer


Since it is a USB device, does Windows 98 automatically load the device-driver when it is connected? If not, connect to the Internet, and run Windows Update (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com) and let it scan for updates. When it completes, look at the "optional" updates -- there may be a device-driver that can be downloaded.

How do i get floppy disk to run on windows 7..


Your computer is running a 64 bit Operating System. This means it is compatible only with 64 and 32 bit software. It is extremely likely that the floppy disk your are trying to use contains 16 bit software which was common in during the era of floppy disks.


The solution is to use VMWare, Virtual Box, or similar software to virtualize a 16 bit compliant operating system.

Did not receive any instructions with the floppy USB external


I would expect that you simply plug the usb cable flat end into the usb port of your computer after Windows has been booted in.

The floppy drive should self install if you are having a current windows xp on your pc. You will see A: drive when you click on My Computer.

Hope this helps. Please rate the solution.

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

Nexxtech External Floppy Driver Problem


Normally windows will install any driver for a usb floppy drive automatically. If it needs one. I'm surprised that it hasn't just worked by plugging it in as there cheap floppy drives over purchased have all just worked without the need to install drivers on win xp and higher. Remember you won't see the drive appear under my computer until it has a disc inserted in it though.
