    samsung usb floppy drive

    Hello,

    I would like to use a Samsung USB Floppy Drive SFD321U/HP to sort and transfer the old data to my Windows 10 laptop. It knows it's there but can't find it's drivers. I have done searches and come up with a few but none will load correctly. Trouble shooting
    has the same problem. Any ideas?

    There is some information on the message in the following link:

    Error Message:

    The driver now installed (10.0.0.10586.0) appears to be the generic Windows built-in driver. However the floppy drive may need a specific driver.

    Did the floppy drive come with an installation media?

    Also, can you get the Hardware Ids for the device:

    In the Device Manager right-click the floppy drive > Properties > Details, then choose "Hardware Ids" from the drop-down menu under "Property".

    What is listed under "Value"?

    Can't connect external SONY 2X Speed Floppy Disk Drive to my Toshiba laptop Windows 10.

    Hi Ken,

    The challenge that you experience while trying to to connect your external floppy disk drive is due to a missing or outdated driver that can support the device.

    For us to isolate the issue, please answer the following question:

    • What error message are you getting?
    • Which version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Were there any changes made prior to the issue?

    We suggest that you look for the CD installer for your floppy disk drive and have it installed on your laptop. It usually comes with the packaging of the device. You can follow the steps on the article

    How to install programs on Windows 10
    .

    If in case the CD is not there, you can contact Sony to check for the driver.

    Let us know how it goes.
