    I'm assuming you're correct in stating that it's reading not just having the little light on. (that would mean that the ribbon cable was on upside down - backwards)

    Try this - Install a known good floppy disk format the disk then close it when prompted. I've had to do this on ME several times don't really know why it works but it has for me.
