Question about SmartDisk USB Floppy Drive Titanium Edition (FDUSB-TM2) External Floppy Drive

1 Answer

When I plugged in the drive for the first time, Windows 7 immediately (within milliseconds) informed me that it was ready for use without spending any time installing a driver. But when a floppy is inserted it spins for a short time but does not mount as a drive.

    If you go to Device Manager, via Control Panel | System. Hardware, does the USB Floppy Drive show? and if so are there any yellow "!" or red X's? Also, have you checked if Floppy support is enabled in the BIOS?

How to Install Windows 7 from a USB Key

Note: This guidewill only work within Windows Vista or 7. 1. Format Your USB Key
Plug in your USB key and back upany existing data stored on it. You'll need to format the key before you canmake it a bootable device. Open up a Command Prompt as anAdministrator. You can do this by finding the cmd.exe in yoruWindows/System32 folder, right-clicking the executable, and selecting "Run asAdministrator". Alternatively, type CMD in the Start Menu search field andactivate the Command Prompt using Ctrl + Shift + Enter. You should be underc:\Windows\system32 (assuming your Windows partition is the C drive). Type"diskpart" in the command line to enter the Disk Partition command line tool,which lets you format and create partitions on active disks. Type "list disk" to reveal a listof all your active disks, each of which is associated with a number. Make anote of which one is your USB key, based on the capacity. In our screenshotbelow, our USB drive is Disk 6 (8GB). Next, type the following commands,one at a time: Select Disk # (Where# is the number of your USB disk. We typed "Select Disk 6") Clean (removes anyexisting partitions from the USB disk, including any hidden sectors) Create Partition Primary(Creates a new primary partition with default parameters) Select Partition 1(Focus on the newly created partition) Active (Sets thein-focus partition to active, informing the disk firmware that this is a validsystem partition) Format FS=NTFS(Formats the partition with the NTFS file system. This may take several minutesto complete, depending on the of your USB key.) Assign (Gives theUSB drive a Windows volume and next available drive letter, which you shouldwrite down. In our case, drive "L" was assigned.) Exit (Quits theDiskPart tool)2. Turn the USB Key into a Bootable Device
Insert the Windows 7 install DVDinto your drive, and view the files that it contains. Copy all of the fileshere to a folder on your Desktop. We put the disc contents in a folder named"Windows 7" Go back to your command prompt,running it as an Administrator. Using the "CD" command, find your way to thefolder where you extracted the ISO files. Your command line path should looksomething like "C:\Users\USERNAMEHERE\Desktop\Windows 7\". Type the following commands: CD Boot (This getsyou into the "boot" directory) Bootsect.exe /nt60 L:(where 'L' is the drive letter assigned to your USB key from the previous step) Bootsect infuses boot managercompatible code into your USB key to make it a bootable device. IMPORTANT: Ifyou're currently running 32-bit Windows Vista or 7, Bootsect will only work ifyou use the files from the 32-bit Windows 7 install disc. The Bootsectexecutable from the 64-bit version will not run in 32-bit Vista. 3. Load the USB Key Up with the Install Files
Copyall of the extracted ISO files into the USB drive. You don't need to do thisfrom the command prompt. Just drag and drop the files from the "Windows 7"folder into the drive using Windows Explorer. Your USB key is now all ready togo! Plug it into your target system and make sure you enter the BIOS (typicallywith F2 or F12) to temporarily change the boot order to allow booting from theUSB key before your primary hard drive or optical drive. On the next restart,your system should automatically begin speedily loading setup files off of theUSB key and entering Windows 7 installation.

Had power surge. Tv was on surge protector. Now no power will come on and just makes a buzzing sound.

Have you tried plugging it in without the surge protector? I would wager that either a) the surge protector needs to be reset/turned on and off depending on the model or b) either your TV and/or surge protector have been damaged by the power surge.

Try plugging the TV straight into the outlet and see if that helps.

I need the GP08LU10 XP driver

USB optical drives never require a driver when used in Windows XP. This device is 100% Plug 'n Play in Windows XP providing it's a good drive and plugged into a working USB port. The OS will detect and install a USB drive automatically without user intervention within 4-7 seconds normally. When it does so, you will get notification that the install was successful and that the drive is now ready to use.

If it has never been prepped, ie: partitioned and formatted, then that task will need to be performed using drive prep software usually provided by the vendor/manufacturer or by using the built-in partitioning and formatting feature that Microsoft included with the OS.

Who to manuplate the date in java

Date arithmetic is relatively easy if you remember that time in JavaScript is measured in milliseconds. Use the date method getTime() to determine the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the magic date of January 1, 1970. Use the setTime() method to establish a date you have calculated in term of milliseconds.

Danny Goodman, author of the JavaScript bible recommends that you set up some variables that build on each other to make it easier to do Date Arithmetic. Here is the variable setup that he recommends:

var oneMinute = 60 * 1000 // milliseconds in a minute
var oneHour = oneMinute * 60
var oneDay = oneHour * 24
var oneWeek = oneDay * 7

So for your case (date for 10 days after today), we can declare like this:

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">

var today = new Date();
var mm= today.getMonth();
var dd = today.getDate();
var yyyy = today.getFullYear();
var oneMinute = 60 * 1000; // milliseconds in a minute
var oneHour = oneMinute * 60;
var oneDay = oneHour * 24;
var dateInMS = today.getTime() + oneDay * 10;
var TargetDate = new Date (dateInMS)
document.write("Today is: " + mm + "/" + dd + "/" + yyyy);
document.write("<br />");
document.write("10 days after today is: " + TargetDate);


P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.
