Hi

Regarding configuring flopy drive for desktop please check these things

The wire on the ribbon cable with the red stripe is the pin 1 end and there should be a mark on the floppy drive as well marking the pin 1 end. Sometimes a little arrow or triangle point at pin1 sometimes stenciled with a number.

How do i remove a cd that is stuck in my car


Usually you can get them out using tweezers. One method I have found helpful is to get a floopy disk and remove the part that slides back and forth(this will make the floopy disk no longer able to store or read data) and use that like tweezers. I have removed a lot of CDs from macbooks using the floopy disk method.

I am looking for floopy disk driver for Windows XP


What floppy disk driver do you need? The driver is already in the WinXP system when you install the Windows itself.

If your system cannot see the floppy disk ie "A", most probably it is disabled in the "BIOS settings". Check your "Bios Settings" first to ensure the "FDD" feature is enabled. Check the cable & power cable connecting the FDD too.

If your PC still cannot detected the Floppy disk, most probably your FDD is faulty.

Hope it helps.

UPDATING BIOS... DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK


This happens because the boot process fails: either because in the boot order the floppy isn't mentioned (put it first) or the bootdisk isn't good.
BTW you should update the BIOS only if you have problems, like a new processor not being recognized.

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)


If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.

FLOPPY DISK

I have an old G3 and when I power it up it gives me a floopy disk in the middle of the screen with a ? mark flashing I have no start up floopy can you let me create one


You could try to start from the Disk Tools PPC (can be found here; the Disk Copy 6.3.3 utility, and another Mac with a floppy drive, would be required to make a bootable floppy from the disk image). Otherwise, an appropriate version of the operating system on CD will be needed.
