    Floppy disk drive works with Win 10 Pro, won't book if disk in drive


    The other day, we found some old floppy disks way back in one of our closets. I still have the drive-bay floppy disk drive I kept from a really old Dell laptop, long since gone. This drive could also work with USB. Lucky for me, because my new ASUS ROG X570 motherboard does not have a floppy drive cable header. (And no more IDE cable headers either.) *Smile

    So most but not all of the 30+ floppy disk were still readable. Imagine that. But, File Explorer didn't pick up the file dates. However, Beyond Compare did, so I was able to keep the newest files. Some of these files were actually interesting, like 25 or more years later.

    Really weird, when I had to reboot my system, but forgot to remove the disk from the floppy drive. The system refused to boot up until after I removed the disk. *chuckle

    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. 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?

    Floppy disk drive works with Win 10 Pro, won't book if disk in drive

    Computer without a floppy disk drive that indicates a floppy disk drive? :-(

    Hello all

    I have Lenovo Thinkcentre desktop computer with Windows 10 (build 1809) up to date!

    The computer works very well and does not have a floppy disk, never have and will never have because no port is provided on the motherboard for this!

    Yet in the "Device Manager", a driver error for the floppy drive appears (normal there is n ...) and the floppy disk icon appears in the workstation!

    Screenshot of the error

    I easily managed to delete the icon in the workstation from the registry, but I can not find how to disable this "floppy drive" in the device list !!

    Of course there is no option in the BIOS of the machine because (as I said before) no drive is provided on the motherboard.

    Does anyone have the trick to "erase" this device in the Windows 10 "Device Manager"?

    Thanks for your help

    A +
