Re: driver for an external compaq floppy drive

Am not familiar with the model but Compaq would be your best and downloads....if not, and you will need to poke around.....there is an absolutely phenomenal free driver site in Russia that has (personal opinion) virtually every driver ever made in every version. All free. You can also try the add/remove hardware auto detect and point it to might get lucky. The only other solution is to query the internet with your model number and the words driver behind it. Hope this helps....Tango.

Need the driver for a SMARTDISK model FDUSB-B2 external floppy disk drive unit for a old Gateway Windows 98 computer

Since it is a USB device, does Windows 98 automatically load the device-driver when it is connected? If not, connect to the Internet, and run Windows Update ( and let it scan for updates. When it completes, look at the "optional" updates -- there may be a device-driver that can be downloaded.

Compaq External Floppy Drive

External, parallel port based FDD's are just too darn old and uncommon, and there's no auto-detecting on these things. These things also come with their own power supplies - so make sure the power supply is plugged in or else it ain't gonna get no power - and then you'll need the drivers (which I doubt will be XP compatible).

A USB based external FDD would be a much easier solution!
