I have just purchased a floppy drive, supposedly plug and play.I have plugged it in and the page" my computer"does not show it.How will i get it to operate? by the way my pc is running on 64 bits system, could this be the problem?

this is a USB drive - have you tried rebooting the computer with the drive plugged in?

go to my computer, right click choose properties>hardware>device manager and look for device, left click on the top of the tree and action 'scan for hardware changes' and see if your drive shows up in the usb devices or my computer
