Floppy Question

Recommended Posts

Everytime I try to use my floppy drive, I get this message:

A:\ is not accessible.

No ID address mark was found on the floppy disk.

Anybody have a clue? (I sure don't).

I might agree on the dirty part, it's not letting me do anything-as soon as I insert the disk I get the error, don't get far enough to format. (Guess it's time for early spring cleaning of the pc)

Thanks!

S'more ideas:

If XP be sure you have permission to access the drive & contents.

Try booting with a floppy that has data on it -- Windows may read the disk then.

Try a FULL FORMAT -- not a QUICK FORMAT.

Ensure you have the exact floppy driver for your brand of drive (the Windows default driver may not work).

Rather than buying a new cable, first be sure your current one isn't 'flipped' the wrong way.

Right click on My Computer and then Left click on Properties. Then Left click on Hardware then Device Manager. Do you see any YELLOW ! or ? on the Floppy Disk? If so, you need to install a driver for it.

Boot to BIOS and make sure Floppy A is set to YES/ENABLED and not NONE
