Question about Teac FD-05PUB External Floppy Drive
I need drivers i guess for this drive?
I had the same problem. Finally in desperation I loaded the diskette into my CD drive and then plugged in the USB for the FDD and Vista picked a driver and installed it. FDD now works fine.

After an agonizing hour of searching, I found this solution.
Unlike Windows XP, Win Vista lacks the generic drivers for USB devices.
So the workaround is to copy the XP USB drivers into your Vista system32\inf folder.
1.Specifically, google for these two winXP files:
2. download and save them into your windows\system32\inf folder
3. Pop in your device and allow the drivers to be searched manually and point to the above location.
Presto! The usb device now works fine!
A great step backward from Vista to XP if you ask me!

You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.
