I have recently reformatted system disk C:\ and installed XP. Whilst Device Manager lists the presence of the Floppy Disk Drive, it does not appear in My Computer. Any ideas?

Have you checked the leads and cables for firmness and/or damage?

Also try uninstalling the drive from Device Manager and rebooting, allowing Windows to reinstall the drive and driver.

On checking the bios, The Floppy Drive was 'ENABLED'as the first boot option, but disabled in the devices section. All's solved thanks to all.
