From which platform? From a Windows platform, insert the floppy into your disk drive. You can do this any number of ways but I'll give you the two easiest for me: 1. Right click on start, hit explore, drag your data to the disk drive. It will copy it, not move it. Remove disk. 2. In the program that opens the data you want to transfer (so perhaps Word for a paper you wrote), have the data open in the window, click on File, Save As, and Save it to your floppy drive (usually drive A). Close program. Remove disk.

What is the function of floppy disk drive?

Answer--In the purest sense, the function of a floppy disk drive is to provide a means of writing/reading data on/from floppy disks in an industry standardized method. Floppy Disks were invented as an improved means for storing/transporting data on/from computers. The universality and standardization of disk storage technologies was important to the personal computer industry. By standardizing these complex technologies, computer manufacturers were able to, over time, inexpensively source drives and disks, thus reducing the cost of the computer systems. This made PC's more affordable for everyone.Ok, lets say you type something up in a word processor want to save it, but not directly on the computer. You can buy 3 1/2 floppy disks (you can find them in most kind of computer/department store - assuming it has an electronics department). You put this disk into the floppy drive and then click 'save as' on your document [click on FILE on the top left-hand corner]. You bring down the top box (you click it, and there'll be a list of places on your computer - eg; 'Desktop', 'My Folder' etc). Near or underneath 'My Computer' in that box, click 'Floppy Drive A' or whichever icon has a little picture of a floppy disk on it, and it will load up the disk you put in it. You then hit save, and you're done!If you want to open up a file on a floppy disk, you put it in, click on 'My Computer', look for the icon with the Floppy Disk on it, double click, and there should be your file - ready and waiting.ANOTHER ANSWERTo add to that, since then, floopy drives have been replaced by flashdrives. IN some cases a CD replaced the floopy disk.
