im pretty sure this has been everywhere by now. i just disconnected my floppy to see if it would work in another computer and it did and now it wont in the original computer. it has worked for quite sometime now. and please tell me how to fix this. the reason it wont stay in the other computer is because its a company computer and i had to look busy. it has been happening to every computer i touch

Floppy data cables are normally "upside down" relative to hard drive cables. So you may just have inverted the connector. And a few are "right side up", or have special cables or different pinouts, just to make things more interesting.
