Summary: With today's 'Newer' PC's they'v\e gotten rid of of the a:\ Floppy Drives and replaced them with higher capacity, Optical (CD Rom) Drives. This may save space (H/W) on the PC's but many of us 'old-timers' still use and prefer the economical Floppie Disks. I still use and prefer at times the Floppie Disks too. Thank you for providing this external floppie drive that meets my expectations.
Summary: This is just what I was looking for. I have occasion to extract data from over 100 floppies,and since new computers do not have floppy controlers to install a drive, this works very well for me.
Summary: I took this floppy drive out of the box and plugged the USB cable into my computer. When I inserted a floppy my computer said it was not formatted. When I attempted to remove the floppy, the eject button doesn't work. When you press on it, the floppy moves inside the drive but not enough to self-eject or to allow you to grasp it to pull it out. This was a total waste of my time.
Summary: Thank-you very much. I received this item very fast. The price was terrific. In the stores these items are double what I paid here. What I paid is the cost of the diskette drive I bought when I had my first PC built in 1996.
