Can someone please help with the following problem? I have just installed Windows XP Pro and have lost the use of my floppy drive. It doesn’t appear in My Computer or Device Manager, neither does the floppy controller.
There is a problem device, which is reported as being connected to the Via PCI to ISA Bridge, this turned out to be my floppy drive, I disabled the FD in the BIOS and the problem disappears, unfortunately the drive is still not shown.
The drive works fine in DOS and Windows 98SE
I have now tried everything that I can think of, including the MS knowledge base, but the answers regarding floppy drives and XP aren’t exactly the same as mine, and consequently the solutions don’t work for me.
