Re: 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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Download the installation package for your sound driver from your sound card's manufacturer to a location on your hard drive, such as your desktop. Locate the installation package on your hard drive if you already have the file on your computer.
Open the Windows "Start" menu and click "Run" to open the Run dialog. In Windows Vista and 7, locate the "Run" option by selecting "All Programs" in the "Start" menu and opening the "Accessories" folder.
Type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotations) into the Run dialog. Press "Enter" or click "OK" to open the Device Manager. Click "View" and select "Devices by Type" to arrange the installed devices by their type. Double-click "Sound, Video and Game Controllers." Locate the name of your sound card from the list of installed sound devices and double-click it to open the properties dialog for the device.
Click the "Driver" tab in the properties pane to view the device's driver options. Click "Uninstall" to remove the current driver installation. This step prevents possible conflicts when you reload sound drivers on your computer.
Close the Device Manager after the process of uninstalling the sound driver is complete. Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you saved or stored the installation package for your sound card. Double-click the installation file. The installation package will automatically install the driver again. After the installation process, restart your computer if directed to do so.
That device uses the standard USB storage driver in Windows. Try the device in a working Windows 7 machine. It will mount or you will see a message about formatting the drive. If it mounts your Vista is corrupted and needs fixing/reloading. If windows 7 wants to reformat the USB device, the USB device is likely corrupted and the data is lost. Or is could have been formatted for a Mac and cannot be read directly on Windows.
PS - $80 for a 4 gb USB drive is too much in the current market. You should be able to replace it for $10 or less.
you may just need to reload your driver
if that don't work you'll have to put vista back on
i assume the system came with vista therefore it would have a more updated driver that may not be compatible with xp
let me know if you need anymore help
This could be several things, most likey it's a compat issue with Vista being daffy. Check with the mfg of the drive, see if there are updates for vista or if they should be running on vista. Check with microsoft, see if there are patches for the drive. Also it could just be the drive not master/slaved properly or it could be having mechanical issues.
you need to check all of your drivers, as
1 it sounds like your Graphics driver is not working well at all
2. you are not able to access your CD drives as your IDE driver is not compatible with VISTA and needs reloading
