Noises from A Drive

  Dazwm 19:24 19 Aug 2003

I recently saved some documents to a floppy but now whenever I do something like open a web page or any saved documents a noise comes from the A Drive as if I am trying to use it for something. I have shutdown and restarted but it still happens.

Sorry, I meant to say can anyone help me as to what this could be.

You can stop the noise quite quickly by leaving a floppy in the drive. Then you will find the normal explorer window will open pointing to the a:\ drive. Shift the pointer to somewhere else and open a document or program or something. Once explorer then closes, it should then remember the other drive not a:\ next time

Thanks Xania I have tried what you said but it is still happening and it is getting quite annoying now! Any other ideas from anyone please?

Are you sure the noise is from the a: drive??

A couple of suggestions

Delete the contents of your recent documents folder, if that doesn't work re-install the floppy drive drivers
