Need to get data off old probably Mac formatted floppies. Apple Store? - Ars Technica OpenForum floppy to thumb drive apple software


Is there a chance that I will get my Lacie USB floppy drive working with an OS update in the near future or do I need to downgrade my OS no.

Kaytebb, welcome to Apple Discussions. Look at this link about 800K & 1.44MB floppies & how to retrieve the files. Working with Macintosh.

I bought an external USB drive to read old 3.25 inch floppies. System USB report "sees" the device named TEACV2.0 (brand is SABRENT.).

USB floppy shows in Disk utility but doesn't mount. Does the external floppy drive have driver software that needs to be updated or installed.

Earlier today in the Apple Macintosh Enthusiasts Facebook group, Charles Lott asked if an OS X Mac with a USB floppy drive could write disks.
