My floppy disk drive has dissapeared from "My Computer" but according to Device Manager it is workin properly. As I am nowunable to use the drive can anyone think of a reason for this.Thank You in anticipation,[email protected]
can you see it with the windows explorer?
You should NOT use your e-mail address seeking solutions - the idea of the forum is for members to offer advice if possible and for others to add to their knowledge.You are also liable to receive masses of spam as a result; that would not be the fault of PCA.My son, an IT specialist, once told me that 95 per cent of FDD problems were due to a damaged, faulty or not properly connected lead(s).
i have exactly the same problem on my laptop, soI don't think its a connection fault.
Go into Safe Mode and then Device Manager - if the drive is still listed then it is a faulty lead or connection.I had the same problem with my DVD-ROM and rewriter drives a few months ago and spent quite a while trying to solve it.It eventually transpired that, whilst trying to improve the case's air flow a day or so earlier, I had slightly dislodged the secondary IDE cable to the joint connection on the motherboard.When pushed in everything was back to nromal and, yes, I had checked as much as I could leads wise....
try deleting the entry under device manager and restating your p/c - to see if it sorts itself out
Many thanks for the tremendous response, I am trying all the suggestions.Iandaly.
Reply to anon1, no it doesn`t show in windows explorer, does this mean anything?
