External USB FDD stopped working

I purchased an external USB FDD off Gizoo in August and the unit stopped working some time ago. When I plug it into my PC or laptop USB port, neither unit will recognise the FDD as being installed. Both PC and laptop run XP Pro. Is the FDD kaput?

Hi, looks like it, I also had one go belly-up when it was only a few months old. Still, you should be able to get another under the warranty.

you could try

Refresh USB Ports
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.

Thanks Fruit Bat but that is something I have already tried, with no luck.

Problem was solved after the FDD was replaced under warranty. Cheers guys.
