HI, I wonder if anyone could help me? I am not sure if this is the right place but here goes.

My operating system is wins XP pro. Unfortuantely, I cannot find my floppy disc drive icon. In the device manager it says there is a code 39 error for the floppy drive. I have checked BIOS and the drive is registered there. Howvere in MS/Dos the A: format command is not being recognised either in C:\ windows or C:\ commands.

The drive did work when XP was first loaded on my computer, but not now. NO other hardward has been added since.

Help! I have run out of ideas to sort this problem out. Any ideas?

Many Thanks

Hi dan7brit! Welcome to G2G!

I'd suggest you check out this website and see if it cannot help you solve your problem.

Good luck!

P.S.-- I'm figuring that your floppy drive is bad. I'd get it replaced, they are pretty cheap.
