3.5 Floppy not responding will not read

Can you help? ive just done a new build. When i try to read a floppy on xp it says do you want to format this drive. I cannot read anything from the disk. Power to the floppy is ok. Also ive tried the ide cable other way. Has anyone got any ideas to solve this problem please?

First try a new Ribbon Cable

I have tried a new cable. i cannot understand this as i have never had this problem before with other builds

If your ribon cable's upside down on the floppy the light stays on. Have you not got another drive just to try. I've had a drive just fail. On the plus side at least they're cheap if faulty.
