The PnP TEAC USB FDD like most hardware components that plug into the USB (Universal Serial Bus) should be supported by the Plug and Play feature of most modern operating system environments. However, there are instances wherein the devices are not readily recognized and require the installation of the driver. Essentially, any hardware component for that matter should have its corresponding device driver installed to activate all feature sets that have been set into the hardware.
