With the rapid growth and advancement of USB technology, especially USB storage devices, traditional and mind bothering floppy drives are gradually being moved out of usage.

Several old machines and devices are still dependent on old floppy drives as the only way of inputting the data for processing. To mention few of these are Robots and Machines used for knitting, laser-cutting devices, weaving, embroidery, musical keyboards, milling, CNC and injection molding are still getting their source by the use of so called vulnerable floppies. Adding to the vow of industrial users in addition to the waste of financial resources a lot of precious time is being wasted in inputting data in the machines.

With the rapid change in USB technology the goods news for users is that:

Why should I Convert Floppy to USB?

From last so many years the floppy disk and the slow RS232 serial communication was the unique means to transfer data from a computer to system. These days the floppy discs are phasing out and are very hard to find in computers and are rarely seen on any shops. So in different countries like UK & USA vendors are providing replacements of floppy drives. But, what will happen if a very expensive industrial machines is stalled for just because that there is no floppy drive compatible to your machine in the market to replace the defective floppy disk drive. We definitely hope that users will not be with the mind to store hundreds of them to keep the machine running?

Now there is no need to worry, as almost everyone has and alternative which will allows to convert floppy to usb on almost any industrial machine or old computer currently working on floppy drive. The best thing is that there is no need to change or upgrade any software or any wiring circuit so as to upgrade the old machines to use USB as floppy. You only need to swap the floppy to usb by replacing the old floppy drive with this usb as floppy. There are no tedious steps involved in it , and no engineering level experience required to use the floppy to usb. Just disconnect the old floppy drive and change with the new floppy disk to usb and that's all! After swapping the floppy drive with floppy disk to usb your machine will now be able to run for another many more years without any worries of floppy drive and you will be able to use usb as floppy.

How floppy drive to usb works?

The floppy to usb gets itself installed on the standard 34 pin or 26 pin Ziff type interface of machine and fools the machines as if it was still connected with a floppy drive. When the machine tries to read or write or try to perform any action of floppy disk drive, it sends a signal to floppy drive to usb which is connected on the FDD channel. Here the magic of floppy drive to usb starts. It reads the USB pen drive connected and then emulates the data to be processed as a floppy drive thereby treating usb as floppy, thereby transferring the data to the machine/device/equipment in the same way that is used by standard floppy drives. In simple words, your equipment will never come to know that the information it was trying to get actually came from a USB flash drive.

Embroidery machines like Tajima, Melco, SWF, Lasser , Saurer , Happy , Barudan and Brother can easily be configured to read from USB Flash drives using these easy to install floppy to usb.

Fdd Interface To Usb Converter

Just for the compatibility issues there are 2 different dimensions of floppy disk to usb available with us. One is the standard 34 pin full height interface version of floppy to usb which comes with 3 different format versions i.e 1.44mb , 720 kb double density and 1.2 mb formats. The second type of floppy drive to usb is with 26 pin Ziff type interface with half height slim version which comes is 1.44 , 720 kb double density versions.

No more floppy disk and floppy drive !!! Just Plug in USB port

Manual - Floppy to USB 1.44 Mb USB Floppy drive Version ( USB port Interface )

The main use of these usb floppy drive emulators comes into play where the old propriety applications transfer data into floppies in Non-dos formats or only on the FDD. There is no viable fool proof method that user can redirect this data to a usb pen drive , where user is willing to install a floppy to usb converter on the equipment to get rid of floppies. As we know that the new generation computers and laptops do not have a standard 34 pin FDD interface where one could try to install a standard FDD or floppy drive to usb emulator. Also due to non availability of any PCI FDD controllers , or usb FDD controller user is left with no choice except to continue with old floppy drives. Using this intelligent version of floppy to usb emulator or the usb floppy drive emulator the purpose could be easily achieved, as using this will enable the user to have a version which can be connected to usb port and gets itself detected as usb floppy drive. Now we have a simple method of formatting the usb flash disc using floppy to usb software, and once formatted can be plugged into usb floppy drive emulator, and getting itself detected as floppy disk inserted in usb floppy drive emulator. Now user can simply access the usb as floppy disc and can do data transfer on A: from propriety software or even in Non Dos formats.

Note : Few things to be kept in mind prior to the start of use of this version of floppy to usb emulator. If the flash disc is not inserted in usb port of usb as floppy, the display of floppy drive to usb displays '0.0.' which means either there is no usb flash in usb port or if it is there then it has not been detected. The dots in between the digits reflect very important diagnose in this floppy drive to usb version of emulator. The dots in between the digits must vanish as you plug-in the usb disk in the usb interface port of floppy disc to usb converter. In the case of dots not vanishing even after inserting the usb flash disc, it is recommended to use slow speed or in other words USB 1.0 backward compatible flash drives. These usb flash drives must have been formatted in single block or multiple partition using the floppy to usb software before being inserted in the usb interface of floppy drive to usb converter. If the process of formatting the usb disc is not done using the floppy disk to usb formatting software, the floppy drive to usb emulator will not be able to access the usb disc. In the front of this floppy disk to usb converter there are 2 switches. The two switches are used to change the partitions created by floppy to usb formatting software in the event usb is plugged in. The rare of floppy disk to usb converter has a mini din connector. The user can connect the mini din connector of floppy drive to usb using a mini usb cable to the usb port of a computer. When it is connected the computer will read this device as a usb floppy drive where you can easily treat usb as floppy.
