This Floppy drive is so hard to find. I've used it everyday since I got it, because I'm working with servers. Works great. It was just plug and play for me, can't go wrong with this floppy.

After reading an overwhelming number of bad reviews on other USB floppy drives - typically those going for less than $25 - I decided not to take a chance on a used one or something of questionable origin. So I bought this new. Pricey, yes, but will be worth it if I don't have problems. I need to process diskettes still being produced from an old data collection system that only has a floppy drive for output. (I also considered replacing its floppy drive with an adapter that takes USB flash drives, but the reviews for those devices were also terrible.) I plugged this in, my XP system recognized it and loaded drivers automatically, gave it a diskette and it worked like a charm. (A CD is included for Win 98; Win 2000 and above include drivers, though maybe not 7 and up.) XP identified it as a "Y-E Data USB Floppy" and also a "Y-E Data USB-FDU USB Device", for what's worth. This drive has the Lenovo logo on it (they bought out IBM) and documentation for using it with an IBM Thinkpad. Maybe the similar drives with the IBM logo which are available as used devices would also work reliably, but I wanted to minimize any problems, and this looks like it will be a winner.

This portable floppy drive is exactly what I needed. Allows me to access much needed information from a floppy disk! Works perfectly.
