your computer is about 10 years old?
floppy drives frequently break. could disable it in the bios or buy a new one.

The drivers for a floppy drive are built in to Windows so it's unlikely to be a driver issue. It's more likely that the floppy drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Hi Wamsize,

I would disagree with Larry, that floppy drives frequently break. It rather depends on usage, and generally now they are not used that often.

Often problems are caused by a build up of dust and fluff. To clean means removing the covers of the drive. etc.

However you advise yours is not being detected. As a first step I would check the bios to see it is enabled, then disconnect/connect the drive's power and interface cables (possibly at both ends if there is a connector present).

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
