Just recieved sabrent usb floppy disk drive and it will not accept floppys.

Look inside. It sounds as though there might be a foreign object stuck in the drive.

In any case, you'd be better off sending the drive back to your supplier as dead on arrival.

I just bought a used Designer 1 with customizing software. Customizing recognizes my external a: Floppy Drive. When I go to Disk Manager to download to a fresh floppy, Disk Manager doesn't see the...

What worked for me was to not put the disk in the drive until I was ready to write to it. Sometimes this would be enough to make Disk Manager find the disk. If it didn't, I would re-format the disk. Re-formatting seemed to force the software to go look for the disk. This worked for me because I did not store all my designs on floppies. I only used the floppy to load what I was going to be embroidering out at that time. All my designs are stored on the hard drive which is backed up regularly, and are readily accessible for writing to the media I use for my D.1.

No beeps, no video, fans working,

no the floppy disk is not faulty, it is normal and required that the floppy disk drive light blink to indicate that the drive is working. And about the power on the power button might be stuck inside that is why it keeps turning on immediately you connect to main power

Hello there!

Well, you 1st should check is your floppy drive properly insterted into your pc mb. Open your hardware check the joins on your FD(floppy drive) if thats ok, assemble the box. Next move is to check is your FD even enabled in ps BIOS. Open your bios acess general settings, and you should find setting flopy disc 1,28~ enable/disable.

After that if you still experience problems you should thinking about usage of usb pen drives, since floppy drive systems are really outdated, as I know there never been any drivers for that system , so those steps should solve your problem.

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.

3.5 inch movable shield on disk stuck in Teac 3.5 external drive

Take the drive from the enclosure, remove the top cover from the floopy drive, you should be able to GENTLY remove the floppy shield. Try not to stress the heads or wiring inside of drive. The floppy shield should come out the front.

I could not get my floppy disk out and the paper sticky that describes what is on the disk got stuck. I had to get it out with a tweezer. The spring load would not push it out. NOW, I cannot put my floppy...

On my Sony MVC-FD88 I had listed this as a similar problem on and then explored it further. I'm very technical so I replaced the internal floppy disk drive myself, so wanted to post my findings here.

I bought the internal floppy disk drive (very hard part to find) at

It is not an easy procedure if you have not done this type of work before. There are several online places that will replace the floppy disk drive for you.

They are very delicate, any jar to the camera can harm them, as well as, labels on disks loose or a misaligned disk cover on the floppy disk. Mine now works perfectly. Generally, once they jam, getting the floppy disk out often destroys the floppy disk drive heads inside the camera. These are great cameras. I am always impressed by mine, it is a definite keeper. From what I've found the electronics of the camera are quite reliable and I only need to take a couple of pictures at a time, so a memory chip type camera is of no real value to me.

Transfer diamond Monogram program to floppy disk

Put the floppy disk in your computer and look at the files that are on the disk using windows explorer. If the names have common file extensions such as .hus, .vip, .vp3, .pes or the like, the files are in the wrong format for the machine to read. For the Designer 1, you must have them in .shv format. The floppy should contain 4 menu files and a couple of extras that you won't know about but they are still important for the machine to read the disk.
