Floppy drive won't format a disc
Floppy A:\ drive won't read or format floppy disc's.
Just in case it worked before and just stopped working. Make sure that it is recognized by your computer. Is it enabled in your BIOS? What OS are you using and what computer do you have. Make sure that the power cable and the data cable are connected to the back of your drive, assuming your have a desktop. In case of a laptop you may want to pull it out and look at the contact and make sure they are not bend and aligned properly. It is most like that you may require a new drive if everything else checks out okay. Good luck.
Desk top running XP 3 have checked BIOS and cable for being tight. Computer recognizes the drive and Windows says, LOL, it's working properly, NOT! It will not read, write, or format a floppy. My wife's computer now does the same thing out of the blue it will do the same as mine. Hard to believe they both went bad within a month of each other. I wish I had an old one sitting around to swap drives to ck.
