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?

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.

you will need to check the way the device reads the disk if may have changed if you tried using a ordinary dvd then went a dvd/r some times you need to change the settings back to the way it was when you installed it ok
