    I am building a new pc with intel dual core processor, 2gig ddr2 ram, winxp pro sp2, and an xfx motherboard. The socket for the floppy is keyed on the motherboard and I have the tape plugged in to the floppy so that pin1 is next to the stripe on the tape. In my computer, there is no "A" drive, the hard drive and cd rom drives are recognized and have assigned letters. I have tried to find info on microsoft's website to no avail. Would appreciate any help. The floppy drive is brand new.

    I do not think so. I went to the bios and on the first page I highlighted thetype of floppy it was. I do not have power to it and it is not listed in "my computer." I have no drive letter for the floppy. I do have drive letters for the hard drive, the dvd rom and the cd rom.
