Okay heres the deal, I just added a second hard drive and everything seemed to go smooth until I started up my comp, inserted the floppy disk,went to open it and saw that i have no A drive.Im running Windows 2000,I have the new drive set as slave and I can see it in the BIOS.All I need is to have my floppy drive back.Any help is appreciated.

Hello!

It's too easy to accidently bump the floppy IDE cable when your inside the computer. Take the 5 minutes it takes to look inside and ensure it is firmly in place, on the floppy drive AND on the board. And if you had removed the cable for any reason make sure it hasnt been inadvertantly reversed. Make sure the red stripe on the cable is plugged onto the #1 pin.

Also look in your BIOS and make sure the drive is recognised there. You mentioned the new HDD being recognised but not the floppy
