Hey guys, this is actually pretty easy to fix. This will give additional floppy support for different external usb floppy drives.
You have to edit a file named "TXTSETUP.OEM" that is inside the floppy.
and below each driver definition:
[HardwareIds.scsi.iaStor_ICH8RICH9RICH10R] id = "PCI\\VEN_8086&DEV_2822&CC_0104","iaStor"
you have to add the following lines: #--The following lines give additional USB floppy support id = "USB\\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP id = "USB\\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony id = "USB\\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data id = "USB\\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC id = "USB\\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC id = "USB\\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega id = "USB\\VID_055D&PID_2020", "usbstor" #--Samsung
Save the file and start the installation process. This time it's going to recognize the USB floppy drive.
That way XP will see it when you specify the type of driver, and it goes to load it.
Good luck. I found this info here
