    I have the OPPOSITE problem .... I plugged my fd into my Toshiba withVista and it worked perfectly.... I formatted 3 floppy discs with it. But when I plugged it into my Compaq laptop using XP ... NOTHING. XP/Compaq would NOT see it. Again, it works perfectly in my Toshibanotebook with Vista.

Good indication that it probably isn't compatible with Vista. The only thing you can do is either return the floppy drive for refund, or downgrade vista to XP so you can use it.

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

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
