Corrupt floppy driver in XP

  Frank-P 20:41 01 Dec 04

I have installed XP on a PC without a problem, except that the floppy has a yellow exlamation mark next to it in device mgr.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times, but still have the problem.

Anyone got any bright ideas?

If you right click on the Floppy Drive in Device Manager and select Properties, do you get any more information about the problem?

Right click the entry in device manager then left click properties this should tell you what the code for the fault is.
Then look at the table in this link click here
it should give you a starting point.
