Elderly Dell laptop.

I have been given the abo _a Latitude CPi 440 XT - I intend to use it solely for WP work in my study.

Today I removed the floppy drive and replaced it with the CD-ROM. I received the message that "Drive E is not asccesible. The device is not ready." I cancelled the operation and put the floppy drive back. Guess what? The same message this time referring to Drive A. The green light comes on and it makes a noise.

How should I exchange the drives?

How can I at least get the floppy drive to work

I have no discs or manuals.

As always I thank everyone for their assistance which I am sure will be forthcoming.

Idiot Diogenes! It does rather help if you put a disc in first!
