    Recently, I discovered that my floppy drive had "vanished"...error code 31. Followed Device Manager troubleshoot, and got it to code 1; driver still there, device working, not configured right. During the process, noticed that my PCI Parallel Port was also flagged! Tried to update driver, no sucess...and the floppy drive went from code 1 back to code 31. Could these problems be related? I am running Windows 2000 Professional.

    Other notes:
    1. Installed Adobe Acrobat 6.0 (it had vanished also); installation was successful, with the exception of "could not find PDF printer port"...PCI?
    2. Floppy Drive error 31, error 1 - tried motherboard and Windows 2000 disk, no dice.
    3. PCI Parallel Port error code 28 - tried mother board and Windows 2000 disk; no dice.

    Have you tried a new floppy drive and cable? They do go bad.
