Recently I added a secondary HDD to my comp. everything is successful, since then (i think). I am not able to access my floppy drive. When in BIOS it shows that I have the floppy installed. When I open my computer, there is no A drive and manually typing "A:\" doesnt work either. " Cannot find A:\". It doesnt even work in DOS. In the device setup it shows the floppy drive installed, I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. No help. WHAT CAN I DO?


Thankyou.

I would open your computer again and check that all of you connections are connected correctly. Reseat the Floppy Drive cable and the power connector.

I should've checked that. The power supply connector was not connected to the floppy drive. Evrything's fine now. Thanks a lot.

I have a floppy drive without the shutter (metal cover at top) and I really need the information. Is it safe to just plug it in, without it.?

Hmm, that is a good question. I will try a disk that does not have anything important on it. >>>Seemed to work fine, I figured it would but you never know. The metal slider is mainly used to keep dirt out.
