floppy light on after fitting new hard drive

  ripvan 21:01 11 Oct 2006

I have just fited an new 200 gig hard drive along side my old 40 gig as it wasn't always starting up properly.Everything works fine using new one as the master.However I had to remove a dvd drive so that i had enough cables.floppy is now connected direct to m/b but light is staying on all the time and won't read anything.Does it require a setting changing at start up.
many thanks

Sounds like you hav connected the floppy cable the wrong way round at one end or the other.

If you did not remove the cable from the drive then it is conected the wong way round at the motherboard.
