    The mini CD only has 98 and ME on it since VISTA came out AFTER the drive. The manufactures site supports the same drivers and XP and bellow are already installed.

    Vista is missing on a drivers pool.

    I am in the hope that someone has learned the trick to making this compatible with Vista or may have a third party driver. Much cheaper option than buying a new digital camera.

    Well I have been looking for the files and I found alot but none that seem to have the correct info accoding to Vista.

    Can you email the ones that you are talking about please I would like to try them out and see if I can recreate your solution.

    I will try that later.

    I just got tired of trying and bought 500.00 of new stuff that worked in XP.

    I just put XP back on since it works and my warranty is expired now.

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.

you don't need one - OSX will see it - only when you insert the floppy into the TEAC

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:
