Driver required for a external usb floppy drive for a Time PC

HI

I have just bought a external USB floppy drive from amazon and as i want to copy some floppy disks onto CD's via my Time PC which i rarely use.

the USB drive does not recognise the USB floppy drive although i know it works as i have used it for external storage on a Harddrive.

Could you please inform me where and which driver i need to download? the model of PC is 00459MT24G4.

My laptop does not work so im resorted to use the PC, any help you be appreciated.

thanks - Bil

RE: Driver required for a external usb floppy drive for a Time PC

thats a Windows XP machine, it should not need any drivers for a USB floppy drive. If it doesn't work theres something wrong with the drive or with the USB port
Theres a slim chance you could get it working by downloading updated drivers from the drive manufacturer, but its a slim chance
