Bytecc BT-144 Floppy Disk Drive is rated2.00 out of5 by6.
Rated 5 out of 5 byCharlieK from Frustrating but it worksI needed to get data off some old floppy disks so I purchased this product. The first time I plugged it in, it took about 3 minutes for drivers to install and even then it did not work. I unplugged it and tried again several times and finally it started working. Another problem is that when changing floppy disks, the drive will not refresh. So for every new disk, the drive must be unplugged and then plugged in again - several times!I would recommend this product for emergency use only.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMike from Does not support Low Density FloppiesFor this price I was shocked that my employee's reported they could not read their low density floppies. With further research I found other reviews where this was discovered as well.Do not buy! There are other options on the market that provide you more compatibility for about 5$ more. Price is too high for such limited capabilities.Thanks,- Mike

Rated 5 out of 5 byChancellor from Almost non-functionalWon't eject disks, won't read most disks (1 out of 10 for me), keeps asking to format disks, often won't stop trying to read even if there is no disk in the device.
