It's a piece of junk--don't buy it!

Carolyn V. Tingle, Amazon
3 February 2012
  • 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.

works only about 20-30% of the time, and not on Windows 7

John, Amazon

  • Summary: Does not work at all for Window 7, just like an earlier review stated (currently using an Alienware M11x laptop) I had an older laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad) running Windows XP, and for this computer, it would read CD's about 20-30% of the time. The rest of the CD's, the Targus would make some initial noise, then stop. Tried unplugging and replugging the Targus with the same results.

quality issues

D. Deaville "health coach", Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this item and it didn't work right out of the box. I returned it and got a replacement - it worked great for about 6 weeks, used only about a dozen times. It no longer works and the return period has expired. I do not recommend this product, seems to have significant quality issues.

What's not to like

Bill Adams "Bill", Amazon
20 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Targus PADVD010U to load software onto an ACER Net Book. The device was plug and play with no problems at all. Seems to be well made and the wires/cables seem substantial and sturdy.
