My canon starwriter will not read 3'' floppy discs...please help.

I bought a canon starwriter 80 fifteen years ago and recently it will not read 3'' floppy discs. Is there a software that will enable me to read floppy discs off starwriter? I have been told of a french software that would help but would like more information. Greatly appreciated.

My desktop PC XP OS can detect TDK FDD-100 external floppy drive ,but cannot read files inside. How can I solve my problem?


The disc may be corrupted :( In most cases external floppy drives work just fine but the disc they are reading is old. Shelf life of floppies is really only 3 to 5 years. After that you really can't trust that you'll be able to read them. I've had discs up to 10 years old that I can still read, but others that are only a couple years old I can't. Try plugging the floppy into another PC to see if that one can read it. Recommend trying it on a newer PC (Windows 7 or 8)

Canon StarWriter 30 no longer turns on


Check the power cord to be sure it is plugged in well (on both sides if it is removable from the unit). Try a different outlet if you haven't already.

Check the machine for a small reset button or hole and try that

Finally, these machines run about $60...here's a link (see below) I found for one with free shipping....not my machine...I just found this for you.

I bought My playstation 3 a year ago, now it won't read any discs


Hi,
This is a common problem on the ps3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue

However if this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

Disc error on Husqvarna viking sewing machine floppy


sounds like a bad disk or the floppy drive is going out. The floppy drive is very expensive to replace. It may be that a local dealer has a used floppy drive which they will install at 1/2 price. If you determine that the floppy drive is at fault, take it to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for repair. This is not something that can be done by the owner. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you. If you are the original owner and you purchased it less than 5 years ago, the drive may be under warranty and you would only pay for the labor.

I wanted to copy some files from a floppy disc to my external hard disc formated for Mac but there seems to be mechanical problems and it says it is unreadable and wants me to reformat it. I bought a new...


Copying files from Floppy Drive to External HDD.

01. Ensure that both Floppy drive and External HDD are configured properly in the machine.

02. Sometimes if virus affected the files of floppy drive, will not copy the full files.

03. Close the small led in the floppy top right side and check once again.

04. In start program, type coimmand and the dos prompt with Drive will appear.

05. keyin Dir A: and see it reads all files.

06. There also it gives error, you cannot copy these files to External HDD.

07. Try to use some other floppier which is already formatted.

08. Ohrr solution is just copy all these files from the floppy drive on to C: and copy the same files after creating a folder in C Drive.

09. Check the Interlink cable is also working fine.

10. If the problem not solved, please call authorized system service engineer to sort out the issue..

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...


You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.
