USB Floppy drives & Win 7

  Migwell 22:07 11 Sep 2013

I have a second hand USB floppy drive which I have tried to plug into my Window-7 64 bit computer without any success. And also on to a Windows-7 laptop 32 bit laptop again without any success. After that I tried a Windows XP computer, again nothing doing. Is it not possible to have a USB floppy drive these days, or could it be the drive is duff?

Try a different usb cable for the floppy drive.

Try a different usb device to see if the usb port is working.

Right click my computer. Properties. Device manager and see if you have any yellow asterisk marks listed.
