Teac FD-235HF-C829 Floppy Drive

Updated on April 19, 2021

Today we’re taking a quick look at another floppy drive, the Teac FD-235HF-C829. You might be wondering what’s the point? What separates this floppy drive from any typical floppy drive?

Well this floppy drive features automatic media detection. It also comes along with the typical die-cast frame and simple Plug and Play installation as all internal floppy drives are like.

As mentioned in a previous article, floppy drives are still used quite often in various industries in the world. Aviation wasn’t mentioned in the article but they are still heavy users of floppy disks, primarily to update their navigation systems. They need floppy disks to update navigation databases of particular aircraft and update firmware / software on airline ticket-printing machines. I also want to mention that floppy disks are still used often in the automotive industry as well.

To go in detail, synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, sequencers, and lighting consoles still require standard floppy disks in the music and theater industries. Programmable machinery and industrial robots in the automotive industry may not have USB interfaces, forcing them to use floppy disks. Floppy disks are irreplaceable for these machines because newer software emulation and virtualization don’t support drivers for USB devices on the equipment.
