Are you sure? It's a new computer? Are you maybe confusing 5.25 with a CDROM drive?
My floppy drive is 5.25 on my new computer.
You'll need to install both a 5.25 and 3.5 drive in the same system. The disk copy the 5.25 to the 3.5.

I have this exact same dang problem! Mine's a Windows 98, and somehow my 3½" Floppy got changed to 5Ό" Floppy. Now, it won't open and even if I right click the option it freezes me completely. Like atme, my files were all saved on the 3½" Floppy disks and, now that it's changed somehow, I can't get anything to send to them or open anything on them. There's a load of things on there that I NEED and/or spent a lot of time on but can't USE now! I noticed a reply to that quote previously had said something about installing both on the system, but I don't know how to do that nor do I have disks or CD-like things to install with; even if I did have the CD-like one, though, I couldn't use it; the CD-ROM on my computer won't work because the computer says that it's not uploaded onto the computer, but we don't have a disk to fix that either.
My floppy drive is 5.25 on my new computer. All my backed up files are on 3.5 floppy. How can I change the floppy drive from 5.25 down to 3.5?
Normally, I'd save myself the whole dang trouble and chuck the friggin' thing out the window then get another, but I can't AFFORD another right now; the one I'm using now is at LEAST 5 - 6 years old as it is and, aside from the above ranting on aforementioned problems, it works really well.

Boot into BIOS and set your floppy in there..
BTW.. It also works better if you start your own thread.. Quiote often, year old threads will be overlooked!!
