? about external floppy drive

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if an external floppy drive, plugged into a USB port, will show up as "A:" drive on a computer that does not have an internal A: drive? The reason I ask, we have an old program "First Choice" on 4 floppy disks that we need to load onto a computer that doesn't have a floppy drive. We tried to burn the 4 program disks to CD which works but when that is put into the cd drive and clicked on "install", it looks for A: drive for the floppys. As you all know, just copying the program over onto the hard drive don't work either. Got any ideas?

LOL! Thank you for reminding me; I had a new floppy drive in a drawer, never opened the packing. I forgot I had it. :lol::blushing:

 

I don't have an internal floppy drive. I plugged it into USB and yes, it is "A:".
