I am now on my 3rd FDD after the first one had it's light on for days. I ralised the cabels were ok and thus the drive was probably nacked. As such bought a new one and within 1 day it had bust. Took it back to shop and said it was faulty and got a replacement. That has now gone - All in the space of a week. Any ideas why this is happening as another of my postings requires me to get a bootable FDD to run HDD diagnostic tool as i think HDD may be nacked. What a merry Christmas i am having!!!
I have little sockets (male + female) on Motherboard and FDD cable. They can only fit one way as the male goes in to the female. I ran a previous post asking why and several people advised me tio check cables. I was working with drive on one day and then the next it's light stayed on - I did not even touch them. Quite simply all my other FDDs have since worked briefly then stopped. On boot up the light does not even show. It is not the cable.
