Try enabling the floppy disk in the bios.

Thank you. I appreciate your effort to help. However, I plugged the (practically) new portable floppy disk drive into another computer's usb port and discovered the drive just plain doesn't work!

Have you tried plugging in the floppy after the system is booted up?
Another suggestion is to use a powered usb hub and plug the floppy
into it. The floppy may require more power than the mb usb ports
Who makes the floppy?
