I don't know what happened but my "A" floppy drive is missing from "My computer" and words!!! All I know is that I left the PC on for too long (10 hours) . Could that have cause the problem?? I have also tried to open it from "words" but there are no options in "look in" for "A" drive!!!.
Although my PC is old, but it is up to date with software's etc. I have never had a problem with the "A" drive until today!! Last time I use the "A" floppy drive was too weeks ago...... I need to access many of my floppy discs :-(
Has this happened to anyone or do you know how I can get my "A" drive back?????
I use Windows XP, Windows Defender, ZAISS, Ad-Aware SE and """I AM NOT A COMPUTER EXPERT""", so please be gentle with me!
I am not sure if you experienced my problem before, but I need to explain more hoping you or someone can help :-(
In “Device Manager” under “Disk Drivers” I could only see one thing: “MXTOR 6L040J2” The “Floppy disk driver" had a yellow symbol/icon with a black exclamation mark (in the middle) There was no Red X next to "Standard Floppy Disk Controller" either! When I checked in "SFDC properties" under "Device Usage" the <Use this device> was enabled!
Do the above make any sense?????? I still can’t see the “A” Floppy disk drive in “My computer”!!
The yellow symbol with ! sign is the problem. Double click it and see if it gives an option to reinstall the driver. If it does, put your Windows disc in and press Re-install Driver and go through the wizard to see if it can detect and re-install the floppy's driver.
