SOURCE: nexxtech usb external floppy won't eject

Look for a very small round hole in the plastic "cabinet" near the media slot (on one side) and gently poke a small paper clip (unbent, of course, first) in to manually eject the disk.

Try different and empty disk, then format it, when you can open it after you format it, then your first disk is damaged.

If still persist, then clean the drive using floppy drive cleaner, it should work.

SOURCE: I have a Teac USB

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also
scroll to disk drives if you can see your drive + to expand right click you should see options update driver disable uninstall scan for hardware changes
select properties you should see options in the general tab to troubleshoot policies volumes driver and details under the driver tab you will have the options to check the driver details update driver rollback driver or uninstall
hope this helps

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.
