    I bought a Chuanganzhuo floppy disk drive to read my old floppy disks. None of them can be read or formatted. I am sure that they are not ALL corrupt. Why can't they be read?

    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.

    Floppy disk drive driver

    Greetings,

    I appreciate your swift response, if the above steps did not work no worries since this is an open forum , we can ask assistance from other community volunteers with their feedback and suggestion with this issue.

    For the meantime you can try to check on this thread by @Gary_816

    After 6 hours this worked for me. I have the Teac drive also and it appeared to install correctly, but did not show up in Windows Explorer. During a boot up the drive clicks and spins like 3.5" drives did on older systems if there is diskette in the drive.
    I opened "Devices and Printers" in the Control Panel and the drive was there. With the diskette still inserted, right click on the Teac icon and select "Browse files > Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)". File Explorer should open up and you will see the files on the
    floppy listed. You will now see "Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" listed under "This PC". Right click on "Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" and select "Pin to Quick access". "Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" should appear under "Quick access". Although "Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" will disappear
    from "This PC" after you close and reopen File Explorer, it will remain under "Quick access" and you can access it from there. It appears that W10 now thinks there is an internal drive "(AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" because if you right click it "Eject" does not appear as an option.
    Why it disappears from "This PC" is a mystery.

    Note: On my machine (ASUS) if I take out the diskette or disconnect the drive, "Floppy Disk Drive (AWhy are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk drive? :)" stays in the "Quick access" menu. So no need to keep a diskette in the drive all the time or even have it connected all the time. Worked fine after I reconnected
    it.

    Note 1: Under "Devices and Printers" the Drive was identified as "TEAC FD-05PUB". If you get something different (assuming you have a TEAC) try running "Troubleshoot" and see if that corrects it.

    I hope the information above helps.

    Have a wonderful day ahead and stay safe.

    With Warm Regards,

    Why are my floppy disk unreadable when using my Chuanganzhup floppy disk 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 +
