Try a brand new disk put something on it and go from there the disk you may be using may be no good anymore. Try this first before getting another replacement disk I would stop using these floppy and go to a USB Stick for storage purposes since they are going obsolete. Just a suggestion! That would solve your problem using floppies for storage besides they do not hold much information compared to todays storage devices. John

My external floppy drive will not install. Instructions say just plug and play. No software? How do I get computer to recognize


I don't remember if you can do the power savings on the USB port in XP. If you can, you access that through the Advanced Settings button of the Screen Saver tab (either Control Panel, Display Options or right click on the display anywhere there isn't a program window or icon).

Since your USB ports work for other devices, it may be that either the drive failed or that built-in cable has been damaged. To replace the cable, you would need to open up the case and desolder the connection and solder in a new cable. I can't advise you on that since I wouldn't have a clue of which wire would be which.

Winxp instalation


hi,

There is not way to install a windows xp os without SATA drivers. If you don't want to use the floppy disk to make the os recognize the HDD, you can integrate the drivers in the Windows Xp installation Cd, using software like Nlite.
Another solution is to use a IDE HDD, the old kind with the 80 wire ribbon cable.

As I understand it the computer recognizes the floppy drive.

Can you read other discs, write to them etc? If not drive is bad

If you can read other discs then your floppy disk is bad

Gigabyte k8t890 m/b cannot find sata wd7500aacs drive


You must creacte a Floppy disk with SATA drivers so windows can recognize your SATA controller.
To creacte this disk you can boot whit your motherboard CD, or you can download dirver on gigabyte website and then copy it to a floppy.

If you are installing WinXP, you must press F6 when it asks if you have a third party scsi our raid controller.

Problem with disk drive A:


First, you should try to keep the floppy drive. If you can find one, I highly recommend getting the floppy drive cleaner diskette. They're hard to find now, but it's worth it if you want to continue to use your floppy drives. If cleaning it doesn't resolve the issue, next item to try is replacement of the floppy drive. You can borrow a floppy drive from someone, plug it in and test to side if it fixes the problem, if not, then it's either a motherboard issue (which I doubt) or a software/windows XP problem (more likely of the two). In which case I would recommend reinstalling windows XP to see if it fixes the problem before shopping for a new motherboard or a new computer.

Good luck
