Hi ,
Try to cutdown power usage. unplug the floppy power and cdrom power and try again.
If it works , then it is power issue.
Use external devices that have their own power (not drawn from usb).
Also try to change the usb cable and retry.
Also try other usb ports (surely you have more than one).
If other ports work (use a usb hub).

Good luck with your issue,

Bought a Bytecc external floppy drive for my xp cant get it to work i put the disc in but nothing happens

Look to see if it shows up in your device manager. If there, delete and reinsert it from scratch. See if the drive hums once when you plug it in (recognizing it). USB cable might be broken inside if it does not register.

You need to stop using Vista as Microsoft has not supported it since 2014. OK to use Vista for a while after 2014 because Windows Update still gave security updates for other Windows products (Word, Works, etc.). But now, Windows Update for Vista will not work anymore for anything. At least switch to Windows 7 as Microsoft will probably support it until 2020.

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.

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.
