Not shown in Device manager

  1. check FDD controller is enabled in BIOS
  2. FDD cable is attached fully at motherboard and drive
  3. FDD power cable is attached at drive.

driver is shown as stopped in computer disk management???

not sure what you mean by this as FDD are not shown in disk management, drivers are only shown in device management.

If you mean stopped in services then highlight -right click select properties in the startup type box select automatic then click the start button
