Question about Floppy Drives
I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A PRINTER(DESKJET632C) TO MY COMPUTER A USED CUSTOMED BUILT SHUTTLE X PC. MY OS IS WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL. THE CD ROM WITH THIS OS ON IT IS NOT AVAILBLE TO ME ANY MORE. THE PROBLEM IS EACH TIME I TRY TO LOAD THE PRINTER DRIVER SOFTWARE FROM THE HP CD ROM, THE SYSTEM STOPS LOADING AND SAYS THAT IT IS MISSING FILES INSERT THE XP PRO CD. AFTER CHECKING WITH MSOFT I FOUND A WINDOW XP UTILITY CALLED SETUP DISKS FOR FLOPPY BOOT INSTALL .TO USE IT I AM REQUIRED TO PROVIDE 6 FORMATTED HIGH DENSITY FLOPPY DISC. EACH TIME I PUT A DISC IN MY FLOPPY DRIVE IT READS DISC NOT READY AND THEN DOES NOTHING.
Please check If your CD drive is detected on BIOS, if yes then Put a Windows XP bootale CD (checkout for the Service Pack) and choose boot from CD in the BIOS and go for "repair option" after the Agreement "I Agree-press F8" session. complete the installation then try installing the printer.

And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
