Samsung USB floppy disk drive won't work without the CD-ROM device driver...

Hi, I was given an external Samsung USB floppy disk drive, which won't work since the CD-ROM device driver is lost. I tried using the online solution, which didn't work. The numbers on the back of the drive are: SFD-321U/EP. I really want to use the floppy disk--any advice?

    Same problem, I received the samsung flopppy disk device and when I went to use it, I found no drivers. Was asked to insert the cd disk and did not have one. How do I correct this problem?

    Same problem. I was easily able to make this work on a friend's several year old laptop (with Windows XP I guess) but on my brand new desktop with Vista, it won't work. In searching the net I found what looked like a driver but there were comments in there to the effect that it doesn't work with Vista...........YET. Comments? I have a lot of old photos on floppy disks and really want to use this admittedly antiquated technology.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable acer extensa 542


Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy disk
* CD/DVD optical device
* disk-drive
* external CD/DVD
* USB memory stick
* PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment)

To use PXE, you need "media" -- a network cable connecting yur computer to a "boot-server". The "media test faiure, check cable" reports that no network-cable exists, or that it does exist WITHOUT being connected to a boot-server.

Probably, your computer failed to boot from a DEAD disk-drive, and then tried floppy/CD/USB before checking PXE.

Replace the disk-drive.

Will a superdiak model work on win xp


I believe it's a usb connection? It should work on xp. The only problem i can think of is the driver, which should be available on their website. Is it an Imation brand?

Try plugging into windows xp and if it will ask for a driver then head over to manufacturer's site and download the appropriate driver.

for imation external floppy drivers, click here.

hope this helps.

I have a Samsung VM8000 the dvd rom does not work is there another way to load an operating system on. I do have an external USB DVD drive. Is there a DOS driver I can down load to use this as I have...


What a lovelly old laptop, I still use one.
The BIOS menu will not allow booting from USB as the USB driver must be installed first and that is run within Windows.
You will need and external DVD rom plugged in through the PCMIA sockets on the left side of the laptop.
There are, from time to time, CD roms from Samsung VM8000 laptops offered for sale on eBay.
You could, of course, remove the 20Gb drive and place it in a caddy, load it as an external drive on another pc then copy the XP disk to a directory. Then replace the drive and try and boot from the rebuilt system you have just put on it.
Hope that helps.

Bios no option to Boot from usb Cd rom broken


Floppy works right? So you need to boot from floppy disk, install USB drivers in DOS and then access an external USB device... whew. OK, so getting a dos 6.22 boot disk is easy, then you have to load a DOS-level USB device driver that 'recognizes the chipset in your USB controller/port and can turn it 'ON'

Go here and READ ;-) They have everything you need (except for my expert help)
http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm

Good luck!
P.S. There are many DOS-level drivers out there, if you don't find one for your PC, make a noise and I'll see if I can help

The floppy version of Oak CD Rom Driver it is trying to install, will only work on certain types of CD drives (usually IDE or IDE-compliant SCSI internals). It is rare that it will work on an "external" CD Rom. Very unlikely.

However, if this is a good brand-name external CD drive like a "Backpack", you can make a floppy boot disk with their own proprietary driver (look on their website or old version sites). Usually the external CD drive manufacturer will provide either a driver to add to a MS boot floppy, or they will provide a specialized floppy image that you can use instead of the MS boot floppy.
