SOURCE: Floppy

I'm assuming this is on a PC. If so, inserting a floppy will not cause the PC to do anything. (The reasons for this are historical and not important to solving your problem.) You need to open "My Computer", then browse to your A: drive to see the files on the floppy. A handy shortcut to My Computer is to press Windows+E. (Like Ctrl+E, but using the key with the Windows logo on it instead of the Ctrl key.)

You need to find and download drivers for the drive, this usually isn't the case though if you are using an up to date opertaing system.. serach online for "Smartdisk FBUSB- TM2 Drivers" and this should sort out the problem after you install them and re-start the laptop..

How to get sony 2x fdd external mpf88e/ua/181 to work on windows 8?


Try to use the windows 8 generic floppy drive driver. Legacy hardware is difficult to make work. You might want to see if you can download and install multiple drivers for similar floppy drives and see if one of them works.

My laptop says no bootable device insert disk what is wrong?


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Is there a Windows Vista download to be able to use SmartDisk High-speed 2x Floppy Drive?


Windows has its own support for floppy drives and it should see it.

Is this an external drive that is plugged in USB, if it is it should still work.

If this has an ide connector, then it is attached to the motherboard, that is how a computer comes with a floppy drive, it uses a port on the motherboard.

All windows version have floppy support.

I have a Toshiba Tecra S3 laptop with a standard Toshiba SATA hard drive (MK6032GSX rv. AS311G). It was a corporate hand me down. It is in dire need of a re-format due to age and virus but when I try it...


Windows XP does not have the SATA driver on the install CD.
You need to download the SATA driver for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support/download page.
If the laptop has floppy drive, then copy the SATA driver to the floppy and when you boot up with the Windows XP install CD and then press F6 to install the SATA drivers which is on the floppy as instructed..

Need to install sata driver on hp dc7100 windows xp sp3


Hi,
Drive a:\ refers to a floppy drive, if you have not got a floppy drive in the laptop then i suggest that you borrow or purchase a USB one, they are not expensive !!!
When you have got a USB floppy drive all you have to do is format a floppy disk in the FAT file system and copy the drivers to the floppy disk.
Plug the floppy disk in the machine that you want to install XP on, start the install as you normally would and look at the bottom of the screen for where it says "press F6 to install third party drivers" and hit F6 as soon as you see that prompt, let it get to the stage where it displays your drive and it should pick up the SATA drive you have in the machine and install windows.
Post back if you need any more help or advice.



Good luck.

Reinstalling windows 98 o toshiba 420cdt laptop


You have two choices:
  • Convert your windows 98 cd into many boot floppies. Then install from floppy. There is a utility on the CD (although I can't remember its name. I think it's something like makedisk.exe) that when ran will prompt you for many floppies.
  • You can remove the hard drive drive from the laptop, and insert it into another desktop computer. You'll need a small adapter to do this, like the one found here:
  1. http://www.pccables.com/cgi-bin/orders6.cgi?action=Showitem&partno=00504&rsite=00504
  2. Once you have inserted the drive into another machine, you can now copy the files from the windows 98 cd to the hard drive.
  3. Now re-insert the drive back into the laptop, and boot from the floppy again. Once inside DOS, you can change directory to your windows98 cd files on the hard drive, and simply run setup.exe.
The second method takes a little longer, but will give you many other benefits, including never having to insert the cd to install a windows component again. Let me know how it goes.
