Samsung external floppy SFD-321U Drivers

I have a Samsung external floppy SFD-321U Drive (USB) and it will not work without a driver.

There are many links to sites wanting to sell me one, anyone know where I can get it free without loading aload of software?

Shouldn't need drivers

Access BIOS and look under the ADVANCED tab and see if there is a floppy configuration section. Make sure the controller is enabled and the size is set correctly (1.44MB 3 1/2").

I have tried BIOS tweaks with no success.

When I restart the PC the drive "comes to life" but still will not work.

I have tried the samsung website with no luck.

What do you mean the drive "comes to life"?

If you put in a Floppy disk you should sse it under My Computer as 3 1/2 Floppy "A"
