In windows XP and later the USB mass communication driver are in built, so you can use these devices like USB Floppy drive, USB HDD, Memory card, flash memory etc...

But before windows XP Microsoft did not supply the driver for USB mass storage devices. So, in your case you have to install the Driver for your USB Floppy drive, then you can use this drive as Floppy drive but after complete boot of your Windows 95.

If any problem or more question Just Ask me

Thanks
Iqbal

I have a USB floppy disk drive that is not working in my pc


Windows 10 does not have floppy disk drive support for internally installed floppy drives. USB drives should work. I have a TEAC external that works just fine with WIN 10.

I have a usb portable diskette drive that says compatabible upto windows 98 I have windows 7 can I download drivers for it?


If it won't plug and play then your basically out of luck. That is a very old device. If you still need to access floppy's i would purchase a newer device or have an internal floppy installed.
thank you,

Will a superdiak model work on win xp


I believe it's a usb connection? It should work on xp. The only problem i can think of is the driver, which should be available on their website. Is it an Imation brand?

Try plugging into windows xp and if it will ask for a driver then head over to manufacturer's site and download the appropriate driver.

for imation external floppy drivers, click here.

hope this helps.

I have a emachine netbook and it say no bootable device


Failed hard drive (assuming one is installed), or could be that it has "lost" the Windows installation.
Possibly a virus, you need to reinstall windows, or hopefully, repair the installation

To do this, as this does not appear to have a DVD rom, you will need the following:
  1. A legit copy of windows (whichever is installed currently)
  2. A spare computer or preferably an external USB DVD Drive (if the latter, skip to the end)
  3. The SATA drivers for this laptop (essential if using windows xp, may not need if vista)
  4. a USB pendrive of at least 4 GB
  5. A USB Floppy drive (possibly)
  6. a copy of win to flash
http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

Uisng the spare computer, extract the contents of the Windows disc to a folder on the spare computers hard drive. Run win to flash and follow the instructions, it will build a boot copy of windows on the pendrive that you specify (it will format the pendrive also).

Copy the sata drivers to the USB floppy drive (you might get away with copying them to the same usb bootable you have just made but I doubt it)

Now, in the bios, set 1st boot to USB drive

Then boot and install, when you reach the F6 prompt, point it to the usb floppy drive and let if find the sata textmode drivers.

Its hould then find your existing windows installation and repair it

IF you ahve a USB DVD / CDROM drive, ignore the above and just install from that, you may need to use a floppy usb to install the sata drivers though

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

Dell Internal / External USB Floppy Drive 1.44Mb *NEW* is this suitable to use as a external floppy disk drive for Dell Dimension C521 computer


Any USB external Floppy drive will work with any computer with a USB port, but if you have Windows 98 you will need an USB driver.
