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!

Also please check the discussions in the link bellow related to your issue:-

No need for one - this unit is very easy to use: make sure no floppy is in the unit and plug it in any USB slot on a pc; a icon saying that new hardware has been detected will appear in the bottom right side , next to the clock; when all the messages coming from there have stopped (less than 30 seconds) it means that the unit is installed and ready to be used; to use it put a floppy in it and to access it just open My Computer and the floppy will be there, like it was in the old days.

The hard disk on your laptop is a SATA, which a generic XP install disk doesn't support. You will either have to create a custom XP install disk by adding to it the required drivers as explained here
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Install-Windows-XP-On-SATA-Without-a-Floppy-F6-47807.shtml
or you could load them to an USB stick and when prompted by the install to load external drivers from A you could reassign the A to the USB and load them from there.

Nexxtech External Floppy Driver Problem


Normally windows will install any driver for a usb floppy drive automatically. If it needs one. I'm surprised that it hasn't just worked by plugging it in as there cheap floppy drives over purchased have all just worked without the need to install drivers on win xp and higher. Remember you won't see the drive appear under my computer until it has a disc inserted in it though.

USB external floppy drive


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

Compaq External Floppy Drive


External, parallel port based FDD's are just too darn old and uncommon, and there's no auto-detecting on these things. These things also come with their own power supplies - so make sure the power supply is plugged in or else it ain't gonna get no power - and then you'll need the drivers (which I doubt will be XP compatible).

A USB based external FDD would be a much easier solution!
