    I have a computer with Windows XP x64 Edition. The official drivers for this drive only support Windows XP (32 Bit). For all of the newer versions of windows (including Win 10), you can use a Microsoft driver instead. Here are instructions to do so. https://kentie.net/article/iomegausb/index.htm. For XP x64 Edition, this does not actually work, and so I am looking for a way to install these drivers without any problems. I already tried installing from the .inf file, but it did not work.

    I was just giving an example as to how people made this floppy drive work on unsupported systems.

    Lots of stuff for x86 wouldn't work on x64 xp. I would look for a win7 driver and see if you can manually install it. Also try a windows server 2003 or server 2008 driver.
