    Sabrent SBT-UFDB reviews

    1.44MB External USB 2X Floppy Disk Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 96.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great after jump starting it I purchased this external floppy drive because my newer PC does not have one and I still have a number of floppy discs around. I still need one on occassion. It does what it is supposed to do so I would have to say it's a great product. My newer Dell PC would not recognize the drive, gave it a generic name and a code 10. It would not start. I hooked it up to one of my slightly older PC's and started right away sort of jump started it. When I re-connected it to my original PC, it recognized it right away and started fine. Been great ever since. Incidentally, although it is labeled as a Sabrent, my SIW specs program shows it as made by Teac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read and retrieve files on old floppies I finally got around to pulling out my old floppy disks and wanted to see whether there was anything I wanted to look at or retrieve. My old floppy drive went belly-up, but B&H had the Sabrent drive at a very modest price, and though some reviews said that the reviewers couldn't read the files, mine came up like a charm after I connected the drive to my MacBook. I am delighted! Most of the files can be opened, though not altered, but that doesn't matter. It's no fault of the drivel I didn't expectt to be able to doi anything more; in fact, I wasn't sure that I'd be able to do even that. Now, I know what is on the floppies. That's all I wanted. What a relief!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good luck getting it to work I bought this to transfer MIDI files from old Yamaha Diskklavier piano player 3.5 floppies to save the files before the old disks fall apart.. Running this thing on Mac El Capitan and got it to work exactly one time, so I transferred one disk. No luck with any subsequent tries - it says the disk needs to be initialized. tried to find online tips and info.. the only thing I found that the disk needs to be in the drive before plugging the drive into the USB port, otherwise it won't work at all. I gave it two stars instead of one because it worked once so I still have hope it works. else it's back to dusting off an old PC in the garage that still has a floppy drive.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad News The bad news is that the drive won't recognize my floppies. And, I have 3 computers with 3 different operating systems. More bad news: The company doesn't support the product with drivers (not available according to their web site. Thanks but no thanks. I'm back where I started. Unfortunately zero stars is not an option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old is made new again Deep cleaning found several picture floppy disks (3.5) an employee of @ told me about a product that would allow me to retrieve the pictures and save a lot of money. I did research and found your product with 5 stars. Price was very affordable (under $). It came quickly. All I had to do was plug it into a usb port. After a few minutes of registering I was able to start retrieving the pictures. And transferring them to our external hard drive.Thank you. I thought they were lost forever with outdated disks.I would certainly recommend your product for ease of use for non techy people like me, and cost. The only minor thing would be a little to increase the length of the cord.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a worthwhile product. Finally. A 3 1/2 floppy drive that is compatible with Windows Vista, 7, and 8.1. I have a Sony Mavica camera that I can now use again. Also I have many old photo floppies from ages past that I can now read and many old programs on floppy discs that I have been able to use again. The 3 1/2 floppy is not quite dead, yet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Junk- didn't work at all. Absolutely doesn't work on disks that they claim it will. Company told me that they weren't expected to work on older disks. No support at all from Sabrent. Due to the cost of postage not worth sending back.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Work, I will return Really should get 0 stars, but we can't submit it that way. I plugged it in to both an XP and Windows 7 computer. It make a buzzing sound and flashes for less than a second in the file explorer then the buzzing stops and the icon in the file explorer goes away so there is no way to access the floppy. I tried plugging it into the usb with a disk already in it and without a disk. The disk also gets stuck and I have to rap the back to get it out after I press the eject button. I'm sure I just got a bad one.
