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.)

SOURCE: configuraton of my computer for aSmartdisk Fdusb-tm2

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..

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.

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 Sony 2X FDD model MPF88E-UA. My vista HP doe not read the disc, tells me to inialize the disc??? I've looked for drivers and can't find??? Terri hartfeltdesigns@verizon.net 732.558.8388


Hi Terri,
Try changing your operating system from Vista to Windows XP; you can partition your disc to have another OS alternative. People have reported a lot of glitches with the Vista Environment..I am more comfortable with good old XP. Also check your device manager under control panel.

Cheers & Kind Regards
