Installing floppy drive

Hello and wondering if I could get instructions on how to install floppy drive. I have a barebones build and thought I had ordered flopping and didn't. I have replaced hard drives and memory, along with video cards etc., but this floppy I bought had no cables with it (are they pre-installed?)
and no instruction book, and no CD. So am little confused. Thanks for any help you can give me, email: anchor100a@verizon.net,
Walter Wilkerson

Hi,is it a IDE cable
(if it is you can buy 1 from local computer shops for a few $ just make shure it is a floppy IDE cable)
the is a special mother board slot for floppy cable plug it in and then plug it into the floppy drive and make the computer reconise it by going into the BIOS

Any thoughts?

We have a TEAC FD-05PUB external floppy drive that we are unable to run - system is Windows xp - we can connect to other PCs and it works fine. Thought perhaps it was the drivers but unable to located any...


The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here: http://goo.gl/BvTcV).
Make sure your Windows XP installation is completely up to date, as Windows Updates often contain driver updates as well as system updates. If this still doesn't work (or your system is already completely updated), there are some additional troubleshooting options here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283658.

Did not receive any instructions with the floppy USB external


I would expect that you simply plug the usb cable flat end into the usb port of your computer after Windows has been booted in.

The floppy drive should self install if you are having a current windows xp on your pc. You will see A: drive when you click on My Computer.

Hope this helps. Please rate the solution.

Windows Pro XP will not recognize external floppy drive made by Smartdisc. I was given a Dell C8xx floppy drive, however it requires a special cable connector and not a USB


Check Ebay for the proper cable for the Dell floppy drive. Only a few dollars and plenty of them. All of the floppy cable will work on your C800. Note: the floppy cable is not the same as the CD cable. They do not interchange. You must get a floppy cable.
XP will recognize a USB floppy once XP is installed, but you won't be able to boot from it to install XP since the USB drivers aren't installed until Windows is installed.

Installation of BT-146


Yes, you need to plug in a 4 pin FLoppy Molex connector. Your power supply should have at least one. The power connector is right next to the Floppy Drive connector.

Also, the Floppy connector goes in with pin 1 (The red stripe) to the left looking at the unit from the back (furthest away from power).

There is no manual to speak of.
