Trying to install the DYNEX External floppy drive on my Mac Laptop

Which version of Mac OS do you have? The item is quite old, and it only supports Mac OS 8.6 through 9.1. This device also has problems with newer versions of Windows (Vista/7)

A drive no longer works

I recommend upgrading yourself to newer more powerful storage technology like the flash drive, CD, DVD or blue ray. It is less stressfull, more storage capacity.

In a DOS prompt type:

format a: /n:9 /t:80

Trouble installing DX-EF101 on Vista computer

A USB floppy does not need a driver. That would be for Win98se. Something else is wrong if it doesn't recognize the driver a few minutes after you plug it in.

I need help


Two possible reasons:
1. the disk formatting system of the word processor is not compatible with your current computer's operating system;
2. the disc has been damaged and therefore unreadable.

The solution for possibility #1 is to re-save your "book" as pure text and try again;

The solution for the 2nd would be two fold. You need to get hold of a file recovery software and try to recover the contents of the diskette. Once done then you can format if so needed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Need it to work with Windows Vista OS.

Your Dynex floppy should be pnp both on Vista and on XP. This means that it shouldn't need any additional driver. You just need to plug it into any available usb port, wait maximum a couple of minutes, and it should work automatically. Once installed it will be managed by your computer as any internal floppy unit. In any case, if you need to download the drivers you can find them here:

Need it to work with Windows Vista OS.

This worked with Vista. Plug and Play. Just look in My computer and it will show an A drive. Put in a disk and click on the A drive to look at the contents. Worked great. You dont' need a driver for Vista. Compatible with Vista as a plug and play component. Hope this helps.
