Can you read any existing LS-120 diskettes?
If not, then your device is malfunctioning.

Take a look at the "back" of your SuperDisk diskette.
Look at "bottom-left" for a "slider" tab inside a rectangular hole.
Move the slider _away_ from the bottom-left corner, towards the "top" of the diskette, to disable the "write-protect" hardware feature.

I have a very old Imation superdisk drive, 9" by 6" size. And I can't find a driver to download


If it is the "internal" Imation SuperDisk drive, then set the drive's "master/slave" jumper (just like you would set the jumper on a disk-drive or CD/DVD drive), and connect it to one of the IDE ribbon-cable connectors (which usually connect disk/CD/DVD drives to the motherboard).

No additional drivers are required, in the above configuration.

If you received the CD's that the original owner received with the machine, re-install Windows and all of the drivers. After that install anti-virus software and go from there. If the CD's did not come with your purchase there's not much you can do to restore without software disks.

Hp f1470a ls-120 module


IMATION made SuperDisk drives with different interfaces: IDE (same as a hard-drive), parallel-port (like an old printer), and USB.

So, if the SuperDisk is "inside" your laptop, it probably has the IDE interface. It also may have another interface, to adapt from the IDE interface to the ribbon-cable interface often used inside laptops; just unscrew/remove/disconnect that "extra" interface.

What's left is an IDE interface (just like your hard-drive and CD-ROM) and a 4-pin power-connector (just like a standard floppy-drive) and a "master/slave" jumper (just like your hard-drive).

So, I would temporarily connect the SuperDisk to an IDE ribbon-cable inside your desktop, setting the master/slave jumper appropriately, and connecting the 4-pin power-connector.

Then, start Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and it will automatically recognize the drive, without needing any drivers.

Copy each of your diskettes onto your hard-drive, and burn CD/DVDs, and/or copy the files onto a USB memory-stick.

Shutdown, and undo the "temporary" connection.
