    I'm sure my problem can be fixed easily, but having just spent 48 hours stressed by Hurricane Frances, I'm not thinking straight.
    (Quick scenario...Compaq desktop/56/windowsXP/) I was transferring documents from 3 ½" floppy to CD-rom. I changed floppys to go to the next and the floppy wouldn't open...It began to search. I put in the former floppy and it did the same thing. I then tried to send a document from "My Documents" and the 3 ½" floppy option was gone from the 'scroll down'.
    I restored my system to yesterday's date and still no floppy shortcut...no access to 'floppy' at all. What have I done and what should I do to get it accessible again? Thanks.
