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.

Need the installation cd


There is no need for an "installation CD-ROM".
It is a "plug-and-play" USB device, that Windows fully supports.

If you have the disk... The drivers will still not install correctly using the usual method. Do this: Go to the system applet and find the yellow flag indicating the device is not installed correctly. Click on it and go to the box that says "Update the drivers". Put the disk in your CD/DVD drive and "kill" the inquiry box that comes up. Now tell device manager to find the drivers on your computer and point it to the CD drive. Click Install and they will install fine. You wont even have to re-boot probably.

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.
