How do you put pictures from a camera that uses floppy disks onto a computer?

Usually, you will just need to insert the floppies into the floppy disk drive on a computer. If your computer does not have a floppy drive (most made since 2003 don't), you will need to purchase an external floppy drive. These connect to your computer through a USB port. After you plug it in and insert a disk, you should be able to find the drive and view your pictures.


How do I clean a floppy disk?

There is no established method for cleaning a floppy disk, since the components are too delicate to withstand most forms of cleaning. Floppy disks are usually thought of as "disposable", so if the disk does not work when you first attempt to write to it, you should throw it a way and try a new one. You can, however, clean a floppy drive. They make special floppies whose sole purpose is to clean a floppy drive, much like the head cleaner of a VCR. Due to the obsolescence of the floppy drive, the cleaners may be harder to find, and it may be better to purchase a new floppy drive instead.

Does a floppy disk drive use laser beam to read and wright?

No. A laser is not used to read or right to a floppy disk.The laser is usedto read and right data to an optical disk such as a dvd or cd. The floppy disk is a magnetic storage medium. A read right head is basically a small coil. When a current is passed thru the read/right head, itgenerates a magnetic field which aligns the small particles on the floppy disk in one of two directions. the direction of the particle indicates a 1 or 0which is the essence of data on a computer. to find out more details of the construction of a floppy disk and how data is saved, google floppy disk.

How do you use a start up disk for Windows 98 SE?

Make sure you have a floppy disk, preferably one you just bought or have formatted.A Different Option If you have a properly formatted Windows 98 startup disk, all you have to do is power down the system completely, insert it in your floppy drive (the A: drive) and turn on your system. The startup disk will take care of the rest.


When was the floppy disk invented?

The original floppy was an 8 inch, single sided disk first developed in the late 1960's as a result of research efforts by IBM. The first floppy disk drive systems became commercially available in 1971. They cost more than a new PC costs today.The floppy disk was introduced in the 1970's, and it revolutionized data storage in the PC. It ran strongly for some time, but faded in the 1990's. It is rare to see a working machine being used in this day and age with a floppy drive in it. Wikipedia has more information, and you'll find a link to their post just down the page below this answer.1971According to wikipedia; IBM introduced 8-inch floppy disk (read-only) in 1971...

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.


Differences between a floppy disk and a hard disk?

A floppy disk is a flexible and magnetic data storage system that is removable from the computer that can store up to 3 megabytes of data. A hard disk on the other hand is the main place that a computer stores data. It is a rotating disk that uses magnetic patterns to store data. Floppy disks have been replaced by USB flash drives.These days (2012) you will not find many floppy disks (although just a couple of years ago we had to order special floppy drives for a server because some software would only be installed if it booted from Drive: A a floppy). There were 8 inch and 5 inch and 31/2 inch floppy disks which were common. The latest (diskettes) were the smallest and were protected by a hard plastic casing. Inside a thin Mylar disk coated with a magnetic surface stored the 1.44 Mb that was the capacity of most diskettes. Hard disks have one or more aluminium or glass disks coated with magnetic surfaces. These hold much more information and now (2012) there are units that can store 3Tb or more.


How can you change the boot sequence so that it first looks on the floppy drive for an operating system?

When do you use a floppy disk?

Rarely because they are considered obsolete. No computer built today includes a floppy disk drive or controller. You would have to buy an external one that could be connected to your computer by USB to be able to use a floppy disk (and these are getting harder and harder to find).


How do you put a floppy disk in a PC?

In order to use a floppy disc you need to have a floppy disc drive.These days most computers don't have them at all, as they are so old floppy discs are hard to find..and the maximum capacity of a floppy disc is only 1.44Mb. I recently tried to buy some , but I couldn't find any at 15 different computer shops


How do you install an internal floppy disc drive into a laptop?

Most modern laptops do not have space for a floppy drive internally, so this is impossible on them. If you have an old laptop that has space for a floppy drive internally, it probably already has one so you don't need to install one. However if that existing internal floppy drive has failed you will have to replace it (assuming you can find a floppy drive to replace it with). To replace the existing internal floppy drive you will need the manufacturer's documents on how to open the laptop's case, get access to the floppy drive, and swap out the old one and replace it with the new one. This will almost certainly require special tools (e.g. torx drivers, wrenches) that you don't already have and will need to buy if you don't already frequently do such work.


How would I connect an internal 3.5 Floppy disk drive to a motherboard that doesn't have a ribbon cable connector?

It is possible to get a floppy to USB cable adapter. Use this to connect to the spare USB connections on the motherboard. You may need to get a cable intended for attaching forward USB sockets.

How do you remove a stealth virus?

Stealth viruses are designed to hide on disks to avoid being detected by virus scanners. You must block stealth viruses from hiding, so your scanner can find and remove them.Steps to remove stealth virusesUpdate your anti-virus software.Save a copy of your virus scanner onto a clean floppy disk. (You might need this backup file if the scanner on your hard drive is infected.)Insert the floppy disk into the drive in a locked position; this should block a virus from hiding within the floppy drive.Run your anti-virus software. If the clean, locked floppy is in the drive, you should be able to detect and remove a stealth virus.Check if your scanner program is infected. And if it is, use the backup program on the floppy to scan for viruses.Shut down your computer to clear the memory, and then reboot. Now that the virus is out of the memory, your computer should be safe.
