FLOPPY DRV PROBLEMS
PEOPLE, I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY FLOPPY DRV. EVERYTIME I TRY TO EITHER STORE OR RECIEVE DATA ON A FLOPPY I GET THIS MESSAGE STATING " A:\ IS NOT ACCESSIBLE; THE DEVICE IS NOT READY." I HAVE CHECKED MY BIOS & THATS WAS ALLRIGHT, & CHECKED THE SYSTEM PART OF WIN98 (IN THE CONTROL PANEL) & IT STATES THAT MY FLOPPY IS DOING GOOD.I HAVE CHECKED MY FLOPPY CABLES & PWR CONN., TOOK THEM OFF THEN RECONNECT THE WITH NO SUCESS.
Had the same problem awhile back. A new $16 drive worked wonders. It was dead even though Windows said it was working. Do you have a buddy's computer you could plug yours into?
Floppy drives do go bad without notice...
