Read one diskette once and then failed to recognize any subsequent floppy inserted. Tried with multiple computers. My old laptop's floppy drive still managed to read the same diskettes without issues.
This floppy drive was one of the cheapest on NCIX and worked great for what I needed to. Wanted to grab some old art files from some floppies that haven't been accessed for more than 15 years! I am glad I got to them before all the data on the floppies became corrupted due to time.
Use to update motherboard Bios' and/or install AHCI/Raid drivers. Nine times out of ten works flawlessly, But does require some user knowledge to try different work arounds ie Bios settings, boot orders, safe modes etc. Can be hit and miss with old/worn media, but generally a helpful addition for 14 after PM.
I bought this specifically to install Windows XP onto a RAID array. This floppy drive did exactly what I needed it to and is sleek looking besides. Not something you will use everyday, but it is nice to have it when you need it.
I do some tech support as a side thing for friends and I bought this for the times I needed to either flash a bios or to install additional drivers during windows setup. Haven't had a chance to use it as of it but it works fine a A drive.
Vista Business sees the USB FDD device(s: ['Mitsumi USB Floppy' > 'MITSUMI USB FDD 061M USB Device' > 'Generic volume - (G:)]) but indicates that there is 'No Media' in the FDD when there certainly is.
The FDD can be heard accessing the FD while being discovered and installed, but, after successful installation, FDD never accesses FD when trying to display contents of drive in Windows Explorer.
