Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I need drivers for Panasonic floppy disk model: JU-256A867PC. My drivers are currently outdated and cannot format ms-dos system disk. The floppy disk im trying to format is Memorex 1.4mb 2HD


Answers :

As the floppy drive does not require drivers, there must be something wrong with one of the following components.

either the disk you are trying to format is bad, easily tested by using another floppy.
or the ribbon cable is faulty, or plugged in backwards.
or finally, the floppy drive itself is broken.

as these things are like $10 new, you could just go to a pc hardware store and buy a whole new one, and swap the old one out.
