Reads 3.5"diskettes (even old ones from the 90's)
Great if you need a diskette drive, but you can't connect a FDD because your motherboard does not have a FDD controller.
Windows 8.1 did not need drivers
Also detected on my NAS

It is PERFECT. Much faster than old drives, it doesn't require any drivers for XP, it is automatically detected and enabled. I also tried it on my Android tablet, and it works also perfectly! :-) None found so far. It could be interesting if it was designed to allow fitting it on a 2.5" front bay. A MUST HAVE if you still keep some 2.5" floppy ... Read more
It just works. I've plugged it to my Linuxbox and it just worked. No driver needed. Maybe Windows will need to install something from the miniDisc contained in the package, but I just plugged it, put a floppy inside and I was watching its contents Maybe it's a bit noisy You can buy it almost everywhere, but the price is higher than this. So, if you ... Read more

Very useful to retrieve old documents from old diskettes, as new computers do not include a floppy disk drive anymore. Sometimes you have to unplug and plug it again because the diskettes don't spin correctly. The ... Read more

As others have mentioned the cable is a bit short,... Read more
Very easy to use just plug and play. Works with Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Lion at least. Also got it to work with Ubuntu Linux 11.04 running on Parallels Desktop 6 but it is a bit tricky. Just randomly plugged, unplugged a few times on a different usb ports and it may work on the virtual machine. This also works on a BIOS level. So if you need to use ... Read more
