Question about SmartDisk (FDUSB-TM) External Floppy Drive

3 Answers

Need an updated driver (OS 10.6.3) for my SmartDisk reader

I have an older Smart Disk "floppy" reader. I need an updated driver for it. I am using my "24 inch" iMac (2.93GHz). I am running Macintosh OS 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard).
I have a SmartDisk: FDUSB-TM2 (Mitsumi Model # D353FUE). (It is a 5V 500mA MAX.)
I need to download a "digital image", along with some other data. I have the info on a Kinko's (now, FedEx Office) "floppy" and I can't get the disc to show up on my desktop.
Anyone know where I can find the appropriate driver(s)??? Or, does someone have a "work-around" that I could use in this situation?
Thank you.

    This solution proposed appears to be for a Windows platform, not a Macintosh one. Perhaps, you could check with an Apple person/colleague for a "work around" solution or the download site.


    I need a driver that can be downloaded and run in the Macintosh environment. Explicitly, in "Snow Leopard". The Mac OS 10.6.3.


    I can download a Window's driver, but can not open or run it on a Macintosh machine.


    Thanks.

    This driver is for pre-OS X Macintosh operating systems. It requires a "Classic" environment - e.g. Mac OS 9 or earlier.


    Apple hasn't included the "Classic" environment in its newer OS's since OS 10.2, I believe. I bought the floppy disc reader when I had OX 10.3 or 10.4.


    Hopefully, there is another drive that will work on my OS 10.6.3.


    Thanks.

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 (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com) and let it scan for updates. When it completes, look at the "optional" updates -- there may be a device-driver that can be downloaded.

Can't load SmartDisk FDUSB=TM2 on Vista Premium 64


Hello,
Windows Vista carries a lot of glitches ....we need to give it more time as it improves. The XP environment works better with older technologies like the smart disk floppy drive. My advice is for you to partition your hard disk and place Windows XP on one side and still keep the Vista on the other. That way you can have both OSystems and still be able to use your floppy drive. Alternatively you can upgrade and use a flash drive storage or DVD/CD. They are newer technology which are more compatible with Vista.

Cheers & Kind Regards
