    I am trying to use a VFD and I use the 64-bit patched version, and it gives me the error of not being able to load it. I also tried doing the unsigning my drivers, but it did nothing.

    Hi

    As far as I know there is no 64 bit version available for Virtual Floppy Drive.
    Here's a link to their web site, I see there is now some info about 64 bit but it's over my head.
    Sounds kind of like a do it yourself project.

    Virtual Floppy for Windows

    So If I were to reinstall windows as a 32-bit, it would work then?

    Hi again.

    I assume it would but if you have more then 3 Gigabytes of ram you don't want to do that.

    What is it that your are trying to do that requires virtual floppy drive?
    If you have data on a lot of old floppy disks can you find someone with a older computer who could copy them to CD.

    If you really need to run it, a better option might be to leave your Windows 7 64 bit alone, create a new partition and install 32 bit Windows XP or something compatible with VFD on it and run it from there.

    Do the USB floppy drives available not work in Windows 7 64 bit, I don't see an answer to that.

    I found this maybe this could help...

    How to create a virtual floppy drive on Windows 7 64-bit - Super User

    I found this floppy that says it works with Widows 7 64 bit, but it's from Amazon in England.

    I wasnt the one stealing it, as it was given to me. Anyways, I just reinstalled to 32-bit, and it works now. Thanks though.

    EDIT: The VFD is just needed to install it, and it was not working on the 64-bit system.
