Floppy 'A' drive noise

  Salut 21:05 09 Feb 2005

Every five minutes my 'a'drive makes a noise as though the computer is trying to access it. Anyway of preventing this?

Clear out the "recent documents" list as well as any temp files.

Have you installed anything from / saved anything to the floppy drive?

Is it your AV software that is checking your floppy drive for viruses, or is trying to scan a disk that is not there?...TT

Try using system tray to shut down un-need programs one by one to find which is trying to access the drive.

Or possibly put a blank floppy in the drive and see if anything complains.
