ME DriveA using MSDOS compatibility mode file sys

  BobFishenden 18:18 04 May 2003

Have removed Drive A from system
Have changed BIOS settings and disabled FDC
System properties does not show any floppy drive.
However my computer shows 5.25" floppy and under Sys Properties (performance) message is displayed in box reading "Drive A is using MS-DOS compatibility mode file system"

Can anybody help me please?

try control panel - system - device manager - floppy disk drive - click on plus sign - highlight 5.25 floppy and delete.

Try howard60 suggestion. If on reboot it is detected again then check that these are disabled in the bios.
