This is kind of a no frill device. If you want access to old floppy disks but no longer have a floppy drive in your computer, this is a handy device. I transferred files off about a hundred old floppy disks and this drive worked fine for me.

First unit had a defective component. Replacement was arranged promptly. Second unit works perfect, couldn't be happier. Great for the price. Did not get 5 stars due to the lenght of the USB cable: only 17" It will not reach the USB port at the back of a desktop computer.

I was pleasantly surprised by this external floppy drive.
I didn't expect much, given the reviews and the price.
My uneasiness only increased once I got the drive, and Windows 7, the operating system on my new computer, is not listed in the drive's owner's manual (brief though it is) as a system compatible with the drive.
However, to my delight, all one has to do is plug the external floppy drive into a port (yes, on a Windows 7 computer), and it's ready for action!
SO handy, since modern computers typically don't feature floppy disk drives.

Doing a little housecleaning recently, I ran across several 3.5" floppy drives containing my writing from years ago. Of course, modern computers have no 3.5" floppy drive. I felt stymied. Then I searched Amazon and found this little drive at a reasonable price with relatively good reviews. The floppy drive performed exactly as I hoped it would. Simple; no setup needed; just plug and play. A good value!

Great device. Just like my of Dell 3.5 floppy by Teac. I use it for making Password Reset Discs, various Boot Disc (ie, Nuke Boot hard drive eraser, etc) . Easy install and works great on XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Like most people I bought this USB floppy disc drive in order to examine a bunch of my old 3.5 inch floppy discs to see what needed to be saved from the distant past. Well this new SYBA unit has performed flawlessly and was easy to install under Windows XP Home Edition too. Occasionally some of my old floppies have apparently failed however as Windows asks if the disc needs to be formatted and can't be read, but others have been opened and read just fine. The only drawbacks of this unit that I can see are the lack of a carrying case (that the directions say should come with it, but it didn't), but I think that I would rarely if ever travel with this drive (it can also be stored very easily in its small shipping box as well). Also, as previously noted by others the available cord that connects from the drive to the computer is somewhat short (only ~17" long), but for most modern latops this shouldn't be a problem and my desktop has a USB adaptor on the front so it is not an issue at all for me.

This product has no Win 7 support. I ahave tried to contact the vendor but no response back. Will keep trying until next week and then I will return it.

At work in a middle school music room is a keyboard that is old. It takes a floppy to transport recorded music. Computers rarely have floppy drives any more. To download music from a computer to use on the keyboard the SYBA USB Floppy Disk Drive solves this problem.
