Floppy disk

  Bucksboy 13:36 29 Oct 04

I keep getting message "insert disk into drive A"
even when a disk is in it. I have tried uninstalling floppy drives and letting Windows reinstall them without success. Any suggestions gratefully recived. Bucksboy

Is the disk in the drive formatted ?

Also look in the Device Manager and make sure there isn't a problem.

Hi Bucksboy. If you're sure the floppy disk is a good one and have checked the floppy drive ribbon cable is ok and correctly plugged in both ends, the probability is that the drive itself has failed. This isn't uncommon, and as a new one is available for under £5 click here, this could be the easiest thing to try first.
