Hi Graham,
Your Portable USB 3.5 diskette drive uses a pretty old technology that would come with software or drivers needed to run it. You would need to check on your device manager on control panel. But I would advise you upgrade yourself to better storage devices like the flash drive or the CD/DVD USB portable drives. They are a bit more expensive, but the technology is newer and have less issues. Let's face it, the 3.5 diskettes are getting pretty outdated. Don't you think so?

Cheers & Kind Regards

I bought an ibm usb portable dikette drive by amazone and my xp doesnt recognize it , i have a driver for this and if yes where can i get it


You should not require a driver if you are running windows XP. Does windows ASK for a driver or does it just say that the hardware might not work properly - because in that case it might just be that either the hard drive or the casing that the drives comes in is damaged.

I have a USB portable diskette external floppy drive. It is new. It is supposed to work by simply plugging the in teh usb. When I try to use it, it always tells me to format the disk. i of course, do not...


Try different and empty disk, then format it, when you can open it after you format it, then your first disk is damaged.

If still persist, then clean the drive using floppy drive cleaner, it should work.
