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)

Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?

I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

Running windowsXP pro sp3 ids TEAC floppy in CP sys but no A drive in explorer

I too am having a problem with the Sabrent floppy drive.
I'm running a windows 7, 64bit system, everything installed ok,
but I kept getting a "install disk" message every time I tried to
access the drive. (I did have a disk installed.)
Any thoughts?

We have a TEAC FD-05PUB external floppy drive that we are unable to run - system is Windows xp - we can connect to other PCs and it works fine. Thought perhaps it was the drivers but unable to located any...

The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here:
Make sure your Windows XP installation is completely up to date, as Windows Updates often contain driver updates as well as system updates. If this still doesn't work (or your system is already completely updated), there are some additional troubleshooting options here:

Windows Pro XP will not recognize external floppy drive made by Smartdisc. I was given a Dell C8xx floppy drive, however it requires a special cable connector and not a USB

Check Ebay for the proper cable for the Dell floppy drive. Only a few dollars and plenty of them. All of the floppy cable will work on your C800. Note: the floppy cable is not the same as the CD cable. They do not interchange. You must get a floppy cable.
XP will recognize a USB floppy once XP is installed, but you won't be able to boot from it to install XP since the USB drivers aren't installed until Windows is installed.

Floppy light stays on and will not read/write floppies

It sounds like the floppy cable is hooked up backwards by the floppy drive. Take cable off at the floppy drive and turn it around and reconnect it. Let me know what happens.

Please check If your CD drive is detected on BIOS, if yes then Put a Windows XP bootale CD (checkout for the Service Pack) and choose boot from CD in the BIOS and go for "repair option" after the Agreement "I Agree-press F8" session. complete the installation then try installing the printer.
