Don't laugh!  Really .. Trying to make it work with Windows 10.  And, please, no commercial links to products which scan your machine and offer a membership in the "driver club."

Thanks!

Uh ... that didn't seem to get me anywhere.  The product ID came up as:

USB\VID_055D&PID_2020&REV_0210

When I looked it up at PCI Lookup, it just returned:

Samsung Vendor ID 055d Floppy Disk Drive Device ID 2020

This new information did not help the search process.

I sincerely doubt if anyone has drivers for this USB floppy drive for Windows 10.

I am closing out this request and create a new one.

Thank you.

It's me again.  I have Windows 7, 8, and 10 here and need a driver for ANY of those Windows platforms.

The Hardware ID on this drive is USB\VID_055D&PID_2020&REV_0210  The Vendor is 055D and the ID is 2020.

I'm sure someone has an old floppy around with USB floppy drivers on it.

Rumor has it NEC drivers will work with this drive.... don't know.

Thanks!

Hi,
I had the same problem, but the NEC-driver is working well on my Win 10. Use the device manager and proceed as described here: https://www.usb-drivers.org/samsung-sfd-321u-iomega-usb-driver.html It's no 3rd party-solution, it's still on your PC.

Thanks!  Been down that path, but I don't get the "Choose the Manufacturer" dialogue (like I used to in older Windows versions).   It say, "Select the manufacturer ...", but all I get is a choice of what kind of floppy drive, and none work.  "This device cannot start (Code 10)."

Will continue to pursue this.  Thanks "Astronaut!"

Good evening. This is a true blast from the past. This driver is no longer available from Samsung, but the NEC floppy driver in the Windows device manager will allow you to install the unit on your PC. You will receive an error message that Windows cannot verify the driver is compatible with your device, but you can ignore it.
