usually nothing does happen when inserted.

first inser a floppy then click start/my computer and click the floppy icon.the drive should try to read the floppy now.

for easy access to your drives try right clicking my computer and select "show on desktop"

click and drag this off the screen in any direction to create a handy toolbar.

right click this toolbar and tick auto hide.just move your mouse to it to get quick access to the drives.

you can then delete the my computer icon on the desktop.and if you want to remove the new toolbar just right click it ,select toolbars and untick my computer.

i find it useful anyway.
