Question about Teac Floppy Drive 235HF Internal Floppy Drive

3.5 Floppy drive

I have a TEAC 255HF that was working fine until I Upgraded from Windows 98 SE to Windows XP. the Operationg system is the only thing I have changed. The system recognizes the Drive but tells me every disk (wether new or written via Win 98) is full and I can not format New disk. My device manager in Windows XP shows no problems with the device and says it is working properly. I have used new cables, different Drives that work in Non XP computers. I have uninstalled the drive and drivers and reinstalled them to no avail. Is ther3e a known problem with XP and internal Floppy drives???? Help

Hi, i have installed thousands of Internal Floppy drives and there aint no conflicts between win/95/98/me and xp. all discs should be compatible, unless you took it from a apple machine for example. did it work when you put in a new floppy drive? all the best John

I have a USB floppy disk drive that is not working in my pc

Windows 10 does not have floppy disk drive support for internally installed floppy drives. USB drives should work. I have a TEAC external that works just fine with WIN 10.

Hello! I have a Floppy Drive FD-235HG-C332 manufacturer TEAC. I want to know what data capacity (Operations modes) has my device: 720Kb, or 1Mb, or 1,44Mb, or 1,6Mb, or 2Mb. There are jampers, placed...

Your TEAC FDD (floppy disk drive) is a Tri-mode device (720 KB, 1.2 MB, and 1.44MB)

The "235" part of the model number indicates the drive's form factor (size) is 3.5 inches.
The "HG" part of the model number indicates that the FDD is a Tri-mode device, with the 3 modes
given above.

The manufacturer notes that it has no jumpers, but every FDD I've ever seen has jumpers for
bus master/slave selection. Either master or slave will work.

Here's the manufacturer's web site URL for your TEAC floppy disk drive:

Here's the info on the NEC FD 1137C drive:

We have a TEAC FD-05PUB external floppy drive that we are unable to run - system is Windows xp - we can connect to other PCs and it works fine. Thought perhaps it was the drivers but unable to located any...

The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here: http://goo.gl/BvTcV).
Make sure your Windows XP installation is completely up to date, as Windows Updates often contain driver updates as well as system updates. If this still doesn't work (or your system is already completely updated), there are some additional troubleshooting options here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283658.

Have deleted vista off toshiba satelite s2276, deleted all partitions, repartitioned to single large drive, formatted, booted from floppy, win 98 se setup started and working until installing drivers then...

If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

Windows 98 se, xp not installed to compaq armada E500 pc notebook

First, format the hard drive and make sure it is in FAT or FAT32 for Windows 98 install. Then do your partitioning etc and should work. If it doesn't, it is possibly a hardware fault.

Here is the site for the drivers for the laptop :

Need vista driver for FD-05PUB teac usb floppy drive

You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.
