Did it work before?

If yes, then it died.

If no, then replace it.

Imation Model D353fue not recognized by MACBook Pro


It is a "plug-and-play" USB-device, and *should* be recognized, if the hardware inside the case is in working order. So, exercise that "warranty" to get it replaced.

Try connecting it to a Windows PC (XP/Vista/7/8), to see if Windows will recognize it.

I am using a Mac Pro. My SmartDisk Titanium Edition Will not read a double sided floppy disk. It will read a regular floppy disk. What can i do?


Windows XP "natively" supports this "plug-and-play" USB device.
So, if it is "dead", search eBay for "external USB floppy" and buy a replacement.

My external floppy drive will not install. Instructions say just plug and play. No software? How do I get computer to recognize


I don't remember if you can do the power savings on the USB port in XP. If you can, you access that through the Advanced Settings button of the Screen Saver tab (either Control Panel, Display Options or right click on the display anywhere there isn't a program window or icon).

Since your USB ports work for other devices, it may be that either the drive failed or that built-in cable has been damaged. To replace the cable, you would need to open up the case and desolder the connection and solder in a new cable. I can't advise you on that since I wouldn't have a clue of which wire would be which.

Is there a Windows Vista download to be able to use SmartDisk High-speed 2x Floppy Drive?


Windows has its own support for floppy drives and it should see it.

Is this an external drive that is plugged in USB, if it is it should still work.

If this has an ide connector, then it is attached to the motherboard, that is how a computer comes with a floppy drive, it uses a port on the motherboard.

All windows version have floppy support.

Configuraton of my computer for aSmartdisk Fdusb-tm2


You need to find and download drivers for the drive, this usually isn't the case though if you are using an up to date opertaing system.. serach online for "Smartdisk FBUSB- TM2 Drivers" and this should sort out the problem after you install them and re-start the laptop..
