I believe you don't need to install the driver that came with it. I assume your Operating System is Win XP and it has a default driver for your usb floppy disk drive. That will automatically be installed.

If you want to install the driver that came with the CD, try to copy the whole files from the disk and paste it to your hard drive then run it from there.

The drive should show up in your computer, most likely as the B: drive and no driver shouldn't be required.

Check that the CD is not damaged or dirty.

    Check that the CD is not damaged or dirty, even if new. Check that your CD driver lens are not dirty using a CD cleaner.
    If you cannot open the CD at all, then the CD provided with the device it is probably faulty.
    When this happens you have two choices, either ask a replacement to seller or download a copy of drivers from factory.
    My suggestion is:
    First post here model number, we can see if there is any download available for your unit.
    After ask a replacement cd to seller, you may need it in the future.

    By the way the CD provided is for Win 98, Win ME or older, if you have Vista or Windows XP you do not need to install any software to install an USB floppy unit.
    Therefore, if you can open the CD but software does not install this is perfectly normal.

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.

If the Windows 98 computer does not have a USB port and you cannot copy the photos onto a floppy disk or burn the photos to a CD then the only option is the following.
Remove the hard disk and connect it to a USB hard drive adapter and then plug this into a USB port of a working computer. This computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and copy your photos to this computer or to a USB flash drive.

We want to install win Xp in Toshiba Satallite A205-S5825


Depending on the model of your Toshiba, it may have an unsupported hard disk controller which requires that you load a disk driver from a floppy disk by pressing F6 when prompted during the boot of an XP installation CD. If so, you will need to download the apropriate driver and put it on floppy diskette, Of course a floppy drive will also have to be available during the boot. (enable USB legacy support in BIOS if you use a USB floppy drive)

Alternatively, check your BIOS settings to see if the disk controller can be set to operate in ATA mode rather than AHCI mode. ATA mode should work with the XP cd-rom.
