I put a disk in and try to read it... next thing I know it's telling me to put a disk in....
Check the floppy drive cable, then the power supply cable going to the floppy drive, then the mobo.
Firswt things first, just get another floppy drive, plug it in and see if it works. It's all process of elimination.
First I would try a couple different disks.
If it really is bad they are only ~$10.
Or get rid of it altogether and get an internal zip drive. Floppy drives are becoming obsolete pretty quickly, now that there's Zip drives, CD Burners and USB Memory Keys .
Teh floppy can never lose!
Until every modern computer can use those devices WITHOUT PISSING ME OFF, I'll stick with my floppy boot disk full of goodies.
To each his own. My roomate is the same way.
Update: You know when women buy cheap earrings at the department stores they come on this little plastic thingie, well my son stuck one of those things in the floppy drive... haha
Time to have a talk with mom.
oops, I meant my son not som.
ahhh that makes more sence...
now time to teach him a lesson by forcing him to see goatse.cx and tubgirl. that should scare him straight!
How long will it take before mobos support booting off of the standard USB High Capacity Storage Device driver?
no food for him!
our school ones do! everyone at school (cept me. im too poor) has a win98se on a 256... then since they arnt locked out of the hdd, they install games and play...
No tubgirl in C&P.
You should be one cooler than them and get one of these
Says the transfer rate peaks at 16MB/s
if that was a canadian price i would love to get one... but then im a poor student.
are u willing to buy me one mr penguin man?
Heh, only if you buy me one of these
Actualy, no, tubgirl might actually scare him gay! hehe
