Floppy Disk

Can anyone advise me please?

Although i have had my PC 13 months i have never used the floppy disk, now when i try to use it the message "insert disk into drive A " appears, although i have a floppy disk inserted.

Any ideas please !!!

Sign of the times .... Is the floppy doomed!

Have you tried looking in My Computer for Drive A?

If it is not shown there then you may have to consider all sorts of engineering ploys.

In no way being condescending, but I assume you bought a computer and use it but have no "inside" experience.

Post again to this thread with a bit more detail of your operating system and any other things which might help.

time to try a floppy disc cleaner, may just be accumulated dust, as the drive has never been used.

No i have not tried cleaning it, do I buy the item needed at a store, and do you have any idea what there is available?

easily obtainable, go to click here

also you will find it best to post to forum as many good people are always here to try and help.
