I do have a floppy disk drive on my pc, but when inserting a floppy (first time in months) ive noticed that the icon in my computer is no longer available?? :O

any easy way of getting it back so I can check my floppy contents :D thanks very much if anyone can help!

Have a look in device manager, can you see Standard floppy controller?
Is there an exclamation mark against it?

under my floppy disk controllers in the device manager, I can see one 'standard floppy disk controller', a pci bus, the device is enabled and no exclamation, so hopefully working ok. perhaps someone has deliberately taken it from showing up from my computer, I just need to figure out a way in getting it back?

thanks :)

got it working by simply restarting the machine, holding down DEL to get the blue system set up menu up, and giving drive A the 1.4 floppy disc option :D oops forgot all about that
