If the floppy disk itself is older .. it may be damaged.... otherwise take an old floppy disk you dont need anymore and take a que tip and Alcohol rub the Alcohol on the film of the Floppy disk get it fairly wet but not too wet and insert it and remove it a few times it could solve the problem but note it will destroy the floppy disk your using and give the drive time for the alcohol to dry before putting in another disk... if this seems to do nothing you make have to check your bios settings and ribbon cable to make sure then are set correctly

My floppy drive does not seem to recognise that a floppy disk is inserted...after inserting a floppy disk and trying to run it ......it says ' please insert disk into drive A' ? any advice would be much...


Hello there!

Well, you 1st should check is your floppy drive properly insterted into your pc mb. Open your hardware check the joins on your FD(floppy drive) if thats ok, assemble the box. Next move is to check is your FD even enabled in ps BIOS. Open your bios acess general settings, and you should find setting flopy disc 1,28~ enable/disable.

After that if you still experience problems you should thinking about usage of usb pen drives, since floppy drive systems are really outdated, as I know there never been any drivers for that system , so those steps should solve your problem.

Sincerely

Where is the insert for the floppy disc


The floppy disk may or may not be installed in section 5. They started eliminating floppy drives some years ago, when USB flash started to become popular.

5
FlexBay drive panel
Can contain an optional floppy drive or optional Media Card Reader. For information on using the Media Card Reader, see Using a Media Card Reader (Optional).

If your question was more basic than this, and you have a floppy drive, then you just insert the floppy into the slot. It doesn't open. Look for the arrow on the floppy disk, if it doesn't go in one way, turn it over.

When a floppy disc is inserted it flashes disk


The floppy driver has an internal switch that detects when the floppy disk is protected or not.

It is likely such switch is damaged.

It is necessary to open the camera and the floppy drive to fix it.

If you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, or want to try it, then you can try its repair.

The alternative is to pay to have repaired, but is more likely that the quote you will receive is to replace the whole floppy drive, which costs around $40.00 plus the repair labor.

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?

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
