    LaCie FDD
    I found some old IBM format floppies. I have a LaCie Pocket FDD which supposedly works on my iMac with Snow Leopard. I plug it in but it does not show up (no drivers required) and I cannot even get the disk in the reader. The CD with the user manual states it cannot be read.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    2011 MBP, 2008 iMac, iPhone 5S, iPad mini, 13" MBP and MacMini
    It probably won't show up until there is a disk to be mounted. What is the problem with trying to get the disk into the reader? Could there already be a disk in there?

    Does it show up in System Profiler?
    I find the best way to locate rogue DHCP servers is to send 240V down the appropriate port. Follow the smoke.

    That was my first thought but it appears to be empty. I also tried putting it in another USB port - to no avail! Now it is a "tomorrow" job.
    Many thanks
