    OK but a few glitches, March 21, 2007

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This review is from: Sabrent SBT-UFDB USB External 3.5-Inch 1.44 MB 2x Floppy Disk Drive (Black) (Electronics)

    Unit arrived promptly yesterday from Tiger Direct. First thing I noticed was the plastic flap door (which normally covers the hole where the disk goes) was misaligned. Thought I was going to have to break it out, but I was able to bend it and get it working properly without having to take things apart. Then I tried plugging it into the right side USB port of my Mac PowerBook G4 running OS X 10.3.9 (and put a floppy disk in). The drive made loud grinding noises on the disk, and wouldn’t stop, but no icon appeared on the desktop. Then put it on a Dell Windows XP laptop I had, and it worked fine–well, almost. When I tried to Quick Format a disk, it said the disk was write protected (which it wasn’t), but I put in a different disk, then re-inserted the first one, and it formatted it. I hadn’t bothered to install the Windows drivers that came with the unit; by the way, there are no drivers necessary for Max OS X, and, apparently, not for Windows XP either. Took the drive back to the Mac and tried plugging it in to the LEFT side USB port, and suddenly it worked fine. Tried the RIGHT side port again, no luck. First time I’ve seen something like this. Also, there is NOTHING on the unit with the name “Sabrent” that I could find. I wondered if I actually got what I’d ordered. That’s the extent of my use of this thing so far. Assuming it keeps working this way, I won’t be sending it back. […]

    I have many photos on floppy disc and my new computers didn’t come with a floppy drive. I will be using the drive with both my laptop and desk top. Shipping and setup were flawless. Would I buy this item again from Amazon? Yes, the price was right and the item was shipped promptly.

    Does what it’s supposed to do, November 10, 2007

    With the onset of flash memory, the floppy disk, as a computer medium, has gone the way of the Dodo bird. On new computer systems, a floppy drive is usually an add-on. This USB floppy drive is exactly what you need to transfer any old floppy’s to your new machine. It was recognized immediately by both my Vista and XP machines and has worked without any issues. In other words, it performs exactly as it should for a low price.
