Question about Teac (C87347) External Floppy Drive

1 Answer

Some floppies load photos into MAC ok - some don't.

I have an old MAC (borrowed) OS9.2 and recently got the TEAC external USB Floppy Drive. When I load a floppy, an icon appears on the desktop that holds the photos from the floppy. I then copy those, edit and I'm in business. Sometimes, I insert a floppy (2HD IBM 1.44MB) and nothing loads to the MAC. No icon... just beeps that stop after awhile and then nothing.
I have the same floppies - they are Imation brand. I insert them into my digital camera, reformat them, take pictures and do the cycle again.

Is this a drive problem or a floppy problem? Have search the net, and can't seem to find the answer I need. Thanks.

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.

Stupid question: are you trying to use a PC floppy drive to read PC floppy disks on a Mac? I don't think this kind of operation would have a positive outcome....

Can't get my TEAC External Floppy Drive FD-05PUB to be recognised by my Mac Powerbook G4 running OS 10.5.8. Solutions?


Was it ever recognized?
Is it recognized on other computers?

Notebooks sometimes have poor power output on USB sockets; try all available USB sockets, and as a next step try a POWERED USB hub - ie a hub with it's own, separate power supply.

Need WinXP driver


Hello,

Windows XP has the necessary drivers for a USB floppy drive. Try loading a diskette in the drive.

Won't read disks


Hey Rorel,

The issue could be either the floppy drive or the disk. If you have another computer with a floppy drive or know someone that does try using the disk on their drive. If the drive cannot read the disk then the disk is bad. If it ok the external floppy drive could be bad. Keep me posted.

Thanks,
