Every now & again, after I've used a floppy disk & removed it the drive will search for a disk every time I try to launch a file or program. It will continue to do this even after several re-boots, then it will stop.
Anyone know why this is so?

I think it's because you have accessed the files and worked on them from the floppy instead of doing a copy over to a folder on your hard drive then working on them, saving the changes and replacing back to your floppy.
Try inserting the floppy/s and copy or drag and drop the files to your hard drive. Format the floppy and re-save the files back to it again.
If this does not cure the problem then you will need to remove the association of the file/floppy from your PC. There are a couple of methods to try. One will work for some systems and the other for other systems, just a matter of trial and error. j.
