SOURCE: 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.

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes

Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.

Teac diskette drive pinout for Technics kn1000


Sorry.
There was an interface included, inside the KN 1000 unit floppy disk drive. This interface change "the 34 pin out from the floppy disk)" to "the 24 pin out" that could be connect to the the KN 1000 "24 pin in" conector jack in the KN 1000 main board.

As we know, the common disk drive unit in the market have 34 pin out only. wa can't connect directly 34 pin out floppy disk drive to the 24 pin in jack connector inside the KN 100o main board.

We need such an interface. This is the problem coz no one sell this interface separately in the market.

If u have one KN 1000 floppy disk drive unit (SY-FD), u can pick out that interface from inside the unit, and use it as a gate/interface from your new floppy disk drive to the "24 pin in" connector inside KN 1000 main board.

U can search this 24 pin out diagram interface in the net, but the problem is no one sell it separately.

If the above does not work then you will need to replace the floppy drive and take apart the old floppy drive to remove the disk.

Nexxtech usb external floppy won't eject


Look for a very small round hole in the plastic "cabinet" near the media slot (on one side) and gently poke a small paper clip (unbent, of course, first) in to manually eject the disk.

3.5" FLOPPY DISKETTE
Below we have represented a picture of the now commonly used 3.5" floppy diskettes. The below representation is what the back of a floppy diskette looks like. As you can see there are four main visible parts:
floppyd.gif First, the top left of the back of the floppy there is a small tab. This tab enables the floppy disk to be switched from write protected and un-write protected. Move the tab to the top position, creating a hole, makes the disk write protected. This means that nothing can be written, erased or deleted from the diskette. Moving the tab to the bottom position allows the disk to be un-write protected, which means the diskette can be written too, erased, and or have information deleted from the diskette. Some diskettes, which are generally cheaper diskettes, will be missing this tab. To write information to the diskette you will have to place a piece of scotch tape over the hole.
Second, the top right hand of the back of the floppy you will notice a small hole. This tells the computer if the diskette within the computer is a High Density diskette.
Third, you will notice the circular metal disk in the middle of the floppy diskette. This is used to rotate the magnetic medium within the floppy disk casing.
Fourth, you will see a metal door which can be moved left and then will snap back to its original position. This door is used to allow the read/write head within the floppy drive to have the capability of accessing the magnetic medium within the casing. Once the diskette is removed, this door will snap back into position, helping to prevent anything from getting on the magnetic medium and destroying it.
5 1/4" FLOPPY DISKETTE
Below is a representation of a 5 1/4" floppy commonly used in 1980's and is generally no longer used today. The 5 1/4" floppy diskette was really floppy (flimsy) when compared to the 3.5" floppy diskette.
floppyd3.gif As you can notice in the above illustration, the 5 1/4" floppy does not have many involved components. First, you will notice the Write protection tab which would be present if the diskette allowed information to be written to it. Placing a piece of tape over the hole or if the hole was not present would make the diskette write protected.
Second, you should notice the large hole in the center of the floppy diskette. This hole allowed the platter within the floppy to be rotated allowing the information to be read from the write access hole.
Third, you should notice the Index hole, this hole was the computer's way of knowing where the starting point of the sector was on the diskette by physically having a hole punched in the film disc within the plastic casing.
Finally, you should notice the write access hole. This is the location which information would be read from as the disc within would rotate. However, because there was no protection like that found on the 3.5" floppy diskette, the 5 1/4" floppy diskette was generally protected by placing it within a protective sleeve.
