5-1/2 inch floppy diskette reader

I have a large collection of inherited 5-1/2 inch IBM floppy diskettes that were readable on the old 386 PCs. Where can I find a device that will allow me to read their contents into a current Mac (G4 type) computer, preferably via USB port?

I need MSRE 206 software CD or drivers


Are you sure of the model number? Unitech lists a MSR206 magnetic card reader/writer here: http://us.ute.com/products_info.php?rbu=5&pc1=74&pc2=148&pid=386 . The USB driver is available from the download tab as a .zip file. The direct link to the driver is: ftp://ftp.ute.com/Support/Software/MSR206%20USB%20Driver.zip . The documentation I have is that the drivers are for Win95 through WinNT.

I hope this helps.

I keep getting a blue screen when setting up media center using my sabrent TV-PCIDG card I just bought. BlazeDtv says "class not registered" and then that the hardware is not installed.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I have a old set of IBM computer speakers that need a 12v DC input for power. Is there a power adapter that I can get to make them work?


There are 12 volt adapters in electronic shops, make sure the connector that plugs into the speakers are the correct polarity and have a current output of 1 amp (this should be sufficient if the speakers are small).

Restart installing windows xp again... in that way it could fix the problem... But make sure that you have inserted your mouse and keyboard the right way.... check it again it's color coded... Keyboard and mouse really doesn't work if interchanged.

Goodluck... Fixya me on this... thanks.
