Usb floppy driver
I have a Iomega usb floppy drive. Iomega says that windows vista should have
a driver for it. Quess what, no driver. How do I get drivers for this? Iomega
has none.
Thanks

Re: Usb floppy driver
When you plug it in, do you see anything (any error messages) in Control Panel
(Classic view) > Device Manager > Disk Drivers and/or Portable Devices?


I Bleed Blue and Gold
GO BEARS!

Re: Usb floppy driver
Thank you for responding. No error message, control panel says new hardware
detected, insert disc (no disc came with it), ask if I want windows to find
driver online, I say yes, comes back no drivers found see Iomega. By the way
Iomega has been no help at all. At work I have XP where it works fine, but
not with Vista. Do I try and get my money back?
Thanks Mike

Possibly. I have a USB floppy with Moving Star written on the top,
model MPF82E written on the bottom, which according to a web search is
identified with Sony, but when plugged in is identified by Vista as
Mitsumi USB FDD 061M USB Device. No Vista driver required.
