Works fine with Win7x64
Good product. It worked fine right out of the box. Plugged into USB, auto installed, popped in a disk and double clicked the Floppy icon on My Computer in Windows Explorer. However, I did find that some of my old floppy disks have kicked the bucket. No longer able to read some of the floppys that were stored in a box.
Works great out of the box for Win 7 32 and 64 bit
I had great results from this floppy. It's in a tough plastic case so it goes in my laptop backpack. It opened floppies and read them for both my Windows 7 Pro 32 bit laptop, and my 64 bit Home Premium desktop machines. Drivers were not an issue. Some of my older floppies would not work, but that was the fault of the floppies, not the drive.
Great but has a Glitch
I bought one of these and just could not get it to work with Windows 7. I went to Sabrent's website and through their tech support, they sent me a new drive (for free) that worked perfect. Some stores still have some that had the wrong firmware loaded into the drive.
Worked first time right out of the box!
I took the drive out of the box and plugged into my PC, Windows 7 immediately recognised it and I was back to work in no time at all.
Doesn't work with win7 64x
I've tried this on two machines as described above - can't make it work on either. It will install fine, but I cannot read a floppy with it. Pretty disappointed - this was to be used to feed files to an industrial machine that is old but also very expensive.
