Review on External Floppy Disk Drive - 3.5-inch USB Floppy Disk Reader, Portable 1.44 MB FDD, Plug and Play for PC Windows 2000/XP/7/8 - No Additional Driver Required by John Ford

Revainrating 2 out of 5

Not recognized by drive letters in Win XP, Win 7 or Win 10.

Spent several hours getting this "DAINTY" USB floppy disk drive to work. It is recognized as a TEAC drive in Device Manager on all systems. But that's where it all ends. A drive letter is never assigned. On Windows 7, the drivers are installed but no usable disk is shown. The drive is never visible in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc), so it has nothing to do with possibly conflicting drive letters. I've also tried several 1.44 disks - new and old. Same results. Maybe I have a dud (2 stars for this feature). I will not order this brand again.

  • Durable Test Results
  • So far so good
