I have been asked to look at a Digital VP525 laptop as the harddrive is showing partition error. I have been supplied with a floppy drive to go with this (I need to run FDISK), but apart from the CD tray,(which I assume is non removable ) where does it go ?
Thankyou

Doesn't it plug into a special multi-pin port on the laptop? My daughter used to have a laptop with a separate floppy drive that connected in that way.

Yes thanks, I guessed it did, but I could not see how to do it. There is a small (about 3mm) slider on the underneath, that you have to push up and pull the CD drive out at the same time, of course it was not marked and could have been anything.
