Is the green light on all the time, if it is the ide cable is probably plugged in wrong, if not when your windows startes up press rather F2/delete or F12 (different for different motherboards) your looking for ''enter setup'' look in there to see if floppy has been picked up and if its enabled. might just be a dead floppy drive.

Driver for Teac FD-505 Combo Floppy Drive?


You may have to enable 'A' drive through the bios. Depending on the bios, you need to hit F1 or F2 or F10 at initial start up. You can hit all three at once and get into the bios. Then navigate your way through the bios to find where to enable and disable drives.

My computer does not identify, not driver a. My computer is an XP. Actually I purchased two external floppies., neither had instruction and I am NOT into the works of the computer. My friend can use them...


Hi,

You may have a faulty power supply cord... if the light isn't turning on, there's definitely no power going to the drive. Try a different cord. if that doesn't work, there may be something wrong with the drive itself.
Try that first. Once you have power, and it still doesn't work, you may need to try a different ribbon as well.

Also try reversing the connector on the floppy drive, even if you think it's plugged in the right way. Check the power connector and make sure you haven't 'missed' a pin when you plugged it in. It can be difficult to get the power connector lined up correctly with the pins if you attach it when the drive is screwed into place in the case.
Check that the floppy drive is enabled in BIOS Setup, and configured correctly.
Basically, ensure that BIOS POST identifies it correctly at boot up, then check that 'Device Manager' in Windows identifies it correctly. 'My Computer' about the last thing to check!

Can't load SmartDisk FDUSB=TM2 on Vista Premium 64


Hello,
Windows Vista carries a lot of glitches ....we need to give it more time as it improves. The XP environment works better with older technologies like the smart disk floppy drive. My advice is for you to partition your hard disk and place Windows XP on one side and still keep the Vista on the other. That way you can have both OSystems and still be able to use your floppy drive. Alternatively you can upgrade and use a flash drive storage or DVD/CD. They are newer technology which are more compatible with Vista.

Cheers & Kind Regards

Try another diskette/floppy, the floppy you have is most likely bad.

External floppy drive does not work on this pc, states it's missing code37


Try unplugging computer power cable for 10 minutes, if computer is a laptop also remove battery for 10 mins, so to cut power to computer, this will solve problems caused by electrostatic charges on computer usb.
If it still does not work, than it means that windows drivers for usb are not working properly, in this case you will have to reinstall the system.
