Just tried to use my Floppy drive, but I cannot find it when I open ‘My Computer’.Worked OK two weeks ago. But I have recently installed DVD+RW drive. I have also got CD ROM. Would the latest drive installation have anything to do with it?My operating system is XP Home.
Has it been disabled in the Bios ?You didnt disconnect it while fitting the new drive by any chance ?Sorry if im stating the obvious .
Hi, sounds as if you have dislodged the floppy drive cable inside case. Check all cables and connections.Cheers.
Hi skidzy and technotiger.I may well have disturbed the wiring.WIll switch off and check. Will try to get back within the hour!!!!
Most floppy disk drive problems relate, as Technotiger suggests, to loose or damage leads or cables.If it's not the cause, then a new top brand replacement will be under a fiver.
Back again!Checked all the connections etc - no joy!I replaced the Drive with my old one which I know works - still no sign of A drive when I open My Computer.Hi Stuartli, Pc is just a few weeks old.
Hmmm, well as skidzy said, maybe BIOS setting, though I don't see how that can change by just added a dvd drive.
ps - are you sure that you have not 'reversed' the floppy drive cable?
Technotiger.The land of BIOS! Hmmm, How do I enable? Never been there!
Technotiger - no, I did not reverse the cable.
Before delving into BIOS, make sure floppy cable is fitted correct way round, try swapping it round even if you think it is correct way round (won't do any harm).
