Product Description

Still one of the most used media types in the world

Nowadays, most computers and notebooks are shipped without a floppy drive. However, the need for a floppy drive still exists; the old, trustworthy 3.5” floppy disk is still one of the most used media types in the world. Small files like drivers, software updates, patches for operating systems, anti-virus updates and boot-diskettes are still being shipped on floppy disks.

Also, a lot of people still have old text files, spreadsheets, pictures etc saved on floppy disks.

The USB disk drive was bought as an add on to a Mac. Some of my data was previously stored on 3.5" floppy disks (before CD) and I needed to transfer it to my Mac. It done the job perfectly, no problem at all. i would recommend this product as a cost effective remedy as a Mac doesn't have a floppy disk drive.

I bought this to transfer some old photos from disc to my PC, work with no problems, I'm on windows XP. Good valve and worth having as a back up. I have not used it for other files but I cannot see why it wouldn't work well.

Good sturdy build, as usual from Freecom. Works as expected out of the box and seems very reliable up until now.

If you want to take a look at your old 3½ inch floppy then this is a must.

Easy to use - just plug it in when needed, no external power supply required. Excellent value for money.

I needed a floppy drive to transfer files from my old Apple Performa 6200. I originally bought an Iomega floppy drive which, despite claims to the contrary, would not work with my Imac running OS 10.4. I finally gave up on it and bought the Freecom which arrived with two free floppy discs enclosed. This worked perfectly and I was able to transfer my files with no problem.

I needed a 3.5" floppy drive for my new Mac (OS X, V10.7.4) so I could write Midi Disks for an old Yamaha Keyboard that doesn't have any of the latest USB stuff on it. This works fine for 1.44 disks, but wouldn't read some older 720's. I tried a cheaper £9.99 unit from Amazon that was advertised as being Mac compatible, but when it arrived the documentation said it was for Windows only. However, the way that this unit works is that the Mac only sees it after a 1.44 formatted disk has been inserted. I didn't try that on the cheaper unit (which I returned right away) and I can't help wondering if it might have worked because the drive itself looked identical and probably came from the same factory in China!

Despite trying this product on all three of my Macs, it did not work as it was not recognised by Mac OS X. I even tried it with bootcamp version of Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro and although it was recognised, it would not load. This is all the more disappointing as I purchased this more expensive floppy disk drive based on reviews here stating it was Mac compatible. Indeed, there is mention of compatibility on the mini-disc it comes with, but, suspiciously, it is never mention again in the instructions which details only Windows installation. In comparison, my Liteon external optical DVD drive I bought on Amazon and which was considerably cheaper, is working fine.

Bought this to run through a box of disks I found at the back of a cupboard. Plugged it in and it works, but... in order to get it to read the next disk I insert I had to dismount/eject the device ( I'm on a mac ) unplug the usb cable and replug it back in! Not ideal if I'm to run through the boxful. I thought maybe there would be something in the accompanying manual/support, but ( again ) despite it being pictured as a full sized cd in the Quick Install Guide, it comes with a half size/mini cd which won't work with the mac slide in optical drive, only a tray. Perhaps it'd be available as a download on the Freecom website? Well it's listed as a product, but not amongst the manuals. Disappointing.
The device itself seems solid and well built, but the support is lacking and Freecom don't seemed to have thought it through.
