Question about Dell Computers & Internet

Spontaneous starting Floppy Dive

Every few seconds my floppy drive A makes a clicking sound as if it is activating and the green light comes on (there is no disk in it).

For now I have disabled it since I never use it - could this be indicative of some other problem or just a bad drive?

Win95 driver for this dive so that it is recognised as 5.25 and NOT 3.5 on Floppy icon


Just change your (BIOS setup), from floppy 3.5 to 5.25 1.2MB.
Cold boot your computer and tap key F12, once every second until you see a startup selection, choice BIOS Setup. You can find it from there.

Hi,

The below is on the basis that the drive is visible in "Computer"...


This can be tow thing, one the drive is not receiving enough power from your USB port, try unplugging any addtional USB devices connected to the PC, if this doesn't work try a powered USB hub. Second the floppy disk is faulty or the drive itself is faulty.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.

I applied samsung sfd-321b floopy disc. but it doesn't work. the green light is on. But I cannot find on my PC. How can I solve the problem.


Hi,

If the green light is constantly on then the ribbon cable has been fitted the wrong way around.

To fix some ribbon cables have a twist in them this side goes to the floppy drive and not the motherboard. The red line on the ribbon cable corresponds to number 1 on the drive itself.

Hope this helps!

My floppy drive tells me to insert a disk when I try to use it


Sounds like you have a bad drive or the disk is corrupted. Did you try a different floppy disk to see if the drive is functioning?

Floppy drive (d63119)


is the green light on all the time, if it is the ide cable is probably plugged in wrong, if not when your windows startes up press rather F2/delete or F12 (different for different motherboards) your looking for ''enter setup'' look in there to see if floppy has been picked up and if its enabled. might just be a dead floppy drive.
