I assume you are refering to a 3.5-inch floppy. As long as the computer isn't made in a designer case you can buy a new floppy drive for about $10.00 at Wal-mart.

Cannot access documents on remote diskette drive

ok this is definitely 1 of 2 problems.

1.) the diskette drive is damaged..

2.) the disk them selves are bad. These disk dont last very long and develop a white fungas on the magnetic disc itself.

to be certain get a disc you are re is working ,, and try it on a machine with a drive for it (dont know if they still exist).. if the disc works and does not work on your machine get a new drive..

if the disc don't work well then they are bad.

We are getting a message that says Diskette Error 161 on the screen when we turn the machine on, and a lot of times when you hit enter, it makes a grinding noise and the left margin will jump across the...

Put some WD40 on the silver shaft that the printer slides on this will probably stop the grinding noise. The 161 error is probably that the machine once had a diskette that was removed it won't hurt anything.

If there is a diskette in the diskette drive remove it. It's a bad diskette.
If no diskette in the drive the drive may be bad. Till you can replace it disable the diskette drive in BIOS.
access bios by F2 at boot up and disable the Diskette drive (Floppy drive)

check if your diskette is still working, try an old diskette which is working then if all your diskette are not working it is the floppy drive problem. replace your floppy drive. now a days diskette can easily damage if you use this for 3times by erasing then copying it has short life span. try replacing your floppy drive if you have spare

you have nothing to worry about. It's normal. The 3.5 diskette drive is a 4X speed and the noise you hear is normal. All FD83's and 88's will make noise and vibrate a little.
