Question about Sony (MPF920-Z/131) Internal Floppy Drive

1 Answer

Stopped working all of a sudden

I am using a Sony MPF920 Z/131 floppy drive and has been working perfectly fine until now. I recently have made some Boot disks and was all going well. The drive is still recognised in Device Manager and appears in My Computer but every time i try to access it, it always states that there is no disk in the drive or it is not ready. The power light is constantly on whether there's a disk in it or not. I even get the same problems with my optical drives. I am wondering if it's something to do with the power supply as recently had a new one fitted and was told that it ain't 100% compatible but closest one they could get hold of. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You may need to open the enclosure and install the drive into a new working enclosure, that is assuming that the hard drive itself is not at fault.

You need to stop using Vista as Microsoft has not supported it since 2014. OK to use Vista for a while after 2014 because Windows Update still gave security updates for other Windows products (Word, Works, etc.). But now, Windows Update for Vista will not work anymore for anything. At least switch to Windows 7 as Microsoft will probably support it until 2020.

I own 3 of these. Two of them have been hooked up for over 3 years and worked perfectly until yesterday. All of a sudden, the remote wouldn't work and I couldn't turn the unit off with the power button. ...

If you are using these DVRs over the air only, with 1.2.06 installed you have to run the G* Test in the 9012 menu, to get the digital data going, after removing power. That is why your clocks are --:--. I highly recommend that you update the firmware in both of these units to 1.2.21, to avoid having to mess with the G* Test.

Tascam 2488MK11 hard drive problem

Hi I had exactly the same problem with my Macintosh, it worked fine until recently but suddenly stopped working. As a matter of fact it is probably due to a compatibility issue of the USB driver after a recent software update of MacOSX drivers. Fortunately I have an old Macbook pro with an old version of MacOSX and the Tascam showed up immediatly and USB worked fine. Therefore, if ou can downgrade your USB driver it might solve the problem.
