Hopefully a simple problem with a simple answer: Is it possible to stop Word (and other programmes) from trying to access the Floppy Drive everytime it is opened. At some time I have either opened a file from there or saved to it and now it tries to access it every time. Likewise, when I try to change the default directory for downloading pics. from my camera, the first port of call for 'browsing' is the A Drive.
You can usually prevent this if when you have been using drive A:, you open another file - any from the HD will do........... Then when you finally close the application it will not search for A: next time.
