It may be as a result of Fast User Switching - if you switch user to her account, after having accessed the floppy on your account, the floppy drive will still be 'locked'.
To test for this, reboot and log straight into her account and try to access the floppy.
If this is the case, either log out of your account (instead of using 'switch user'), or make sure you have removed all traces of floppy access from your account (e.g. a 'my recent documents' entry that points to a file that is on a floppy disk).
