Hi,
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

How to Reload Sound Drivers


Instructional steps
  1. 1 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Cd player will not read disks. Device manager on Vista gives a code 19 error, but says the drive is up to date


Even though the driver indicates "up to date" it will not hurt to reload the driver. Do this and let me know what happens.

Asking to format


If this is a new floppy then its advisable to format it.

But if it has been formated before and the message still comes on then ignore it.

Also if you're denied access (Copy or Read) to the floppy then please reinstall the drivers and the floppy drive again using the installation manual

First of all I'm running Vista HP SP1. I put a disc (CD or DVD)in either of my LG CD/DVD 20x drives and try to view the disc by clicking on "My Computer" and then the "drive" that...


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.
