  1. Floppy disk drive driver


    I have a Sony external USB FDD identified by my Windows 10 control panel as MPF-MSRW1. Although my PC identifies it as present, the driver it has used does not seem to work. I have used Troubleshooter and Update Driver facilities but neither is able to determine a driver that is suitable. I have the original CD ROM which came with the drive but the drivers it contains do not seem compatible with Windows 10.


    Can you advise where I might locate a driver - I have tried Sony's website but there is no FDD with my drive's ID listed.

    :)

    Hi Penny,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.

    We are really sorry to say that the Floppy Disk Drive has no compatibility with Windows and there is no support to floppy disk drives.

    For further more clarifications I would suggest you to check/Contact with the manufacturer.

    keep us posted if you are facing any other issue with Windows.

  3. Floppy disk drive and windows 10

    This instructions are for windows 7 put it dose work on windows 10

    In this day and age, with the fact that most new pc’s do not have floppy drives anymore, as a tech, I still find times where bring out an old reliable floppy is my best way to resolve a problem. Many people still have some “classic” tools that are
    on floppy, or documents or pictures saved on floppy (Before CDRW/DVDRW drives became the norm, floppy disks were the way to store and transfer files).

    The problem is that many of the Floppy drives do not have drivers or “official” support for Windows Vista or Windows 7. This post covers just such an issue. I use an Iomega USB drive, and whenever I plug it into my Windows 7 pc’s, I get a message
    that Windows can’t find a driver for my device.

    Here are some simple steps to get your drive to work with Vista or W7.

    1) When you install the drive you will get the message that your drive needs to find drivers. Just hit Cancel

    2) Go to start –> Control Panel –> System –> Device Manager

    (Example from Windows 7, Vista may look a little different)

    3) When the Device Manager opens you will see a listing for X1DE-USB with a Yellow triangle next to it under Other Devices. On that line item right mouse click (NOTE IM SAYING RIGHT MOUSE) and then select Update Driver software and left mouse click
    (NOTE THAT I SAID LEFT)

    4) Now select Browse my computer for driver software

    5) Now select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer and click on Next

    6) Now you will get a box to select your device type from list, click on “Show All Devices” and click on Next

    7) In the following window, for the box on the left select NEC Systems, and then on the right select NEC USB Floppy then click on Next

    8 ) You will be told by Windows that “Installing this device driver is not recommended…..” its ok just click on Yes to continue.

    9) Lastly you will be told that Windows has successfully updated your driver software.

    Now if you look at the Device Manager you will see the listing for Floppy disk drive – Citizen X1DE.

    Finally if you look in the My Computer icon, you will see the A: drive listed for your floppy drive

    With that you now have a working Floppy USB drive.

    Windows 10 - Disk drive showing as floppy drive

    I installed Windows 10 this afternoon & have just found that i have a phantom floppy drive showing in My PC (My Computer) but not my disk drive.

    I went to device manager & the disk drive is there with all drivers installed, operating correctly. But there is also a phantom floppy disk drive installed.

    I have tried uninstalling both sets of drives & rebooting but no luck.

    Any suggestions?
