I have refitted a floppy drive, on boot up the pc states diskette 0 failure, press F1 to continue. The computer recognises the floppy, but puts it first on the list in my computer. in set up I have put it 3rd on that list, but it still reads "Not present". Could some kind sole please help, everything works OK but it is a nuisance having to press F1 everytime. Many thanks Aine
thanks for your quick replies. Ditch999, I assume the cables are correct, because if I click on floppy in my computer, it asks for a disk a:drive. The sequence shown in my computer reads, drive a, drive c, drive d.

Diskette Drive set to internal enabled, should this be set enabled and read only?
I hope this explains this problem better, is the boot sequence set properly?
Quickboot must be enabled in BIOS and that is why it goes to floppy all the time. It would need to be disabled, but I dont understand why the Floppy is not on the list of boot devices. As ened asks, can you read and write to a floppy disk if you put one in?
