Try connecting the external device to another computer, to see if can be detected on that computer. If not, then the device itself has a problem.

Otherwise, try connecting your device to a different USB port on your computer.

Also, try some other USB device (camera, memory-stick) in each of your computer's USB ports, to confirm that the USB ports themselves are working.

I have a Samsung external 3.5 floppy drive, a SFD 321u which has worked fine in my old Win XP computer. I have a new system with Win 7 and this drive will not work with the drivers on the CD and Win 7...


If it is a USB external drive it should be recognized by your laptop, it worked for my dell floppy drive from xp to win 7 64bit, if it does not you should download the winxp driver and use it to install in win 7 when it does not recognizes the drive.

-select have drivers
-select downloaded drivers

it would give you an error of pop up saying drivers are not "signed" just go ahead a accept that and it should work.

Let me know if it helps

My computer does not identify, not driver a. My computer is an XP. Actually I purchased two external floppies., neither had instruction and I am NOT into the works of the computer. My friend can use them...


Hi,

You may have a faulty power supply cord... if the light isn't turning on, there's definitely no power going to the drive. Try a different cord. if that doesn't work, there may be something wrong with the drive itself.
Try that first. Once you have power, and it still doesn't work, you may need to try a different ribbon as well.

Also try reversing the connector on the floppy drive, even if you think it's plugged in the right way. Check the power connector and make sure you haven't 'missed' a pin when you plugged it in. It can be difficult to get the power connector lined up correctly with the pins if you attach it when the drive is screwed into place in the case.
Check that the floppy drive is enabled in BIOS Setup, and configured correctly.
Basically, ensure that BIOS POST identifies it correctly at boot up, then check that 'Device Manager' in Windows identifies it correctly. 'My Computer' about the last thing to check!

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.

If you are speaking of a 3.5 floppy, you won't find one on the newer systems. 3.5 Floppys are out of date and are rarely put into new sytems. If you have data that you would like to retrieve from some old floppy disks, you will need to go to a computer store ie: Bestbuy or CompUSA and get an external USB Floppy drive. Then you can save them to your hard drive and then burn them to a CD or DVD.

Hope this helps you.

My a drive is not recognized. I get a code 19. Do


Your A drive is generally the floppy disk drive. Do you have a floppy disk drive on this PC??? If so, open up the PC and ensure the IDE cable is securely connected to the drive, and is also securely connected the motherboard.
