This review is from: New Slim 3.5" Inch USB 1.44MB Portable External Floppy Drive Disk for PC Laptop
Pros: It will read and write a floppy if you do it just right. See "Cons".
Cons: The only way I am able to make this work is to first insert the floppy in the drive BEFORE you connect the USB cable to your PC. Apparently, the drive only reads the disk directory once when you plug in the cable. This means that you have to disconnect the drive, then change to another floppy, and then reinsert the USB cable--very inconvenient. Refresh (F5) does nothing. Re-opening the drive window from the "Computer" drive list does nothing.
I'm using Win 7 ultimate. The drive comes with no documentation of any kind. There must be a better one on the market. For this low price, it's hardly worth the hassle of returning it. Buyer beware!
