Is floppy enabled in BIOS?

cables inserted correctly?

sounds very like the floppy cabe is 'back to front' or if you prefer 'up side down'.

Thanks Fruit Bat/\0/\ & Dorsia
As an ancient surfer, I don't normally take the lid off - but in this case you have talked me into it. I'll try your sugestions. Thanks
