    Hi troops,

    This is weird. Seems the MoBo doesn't see the
    floppy on the machine I'm working on. I checked
    the BIOS and it's OK. The Floppy gets power, but
    remains unseen. Checked the cable - light stays
    On one way - No light at all the other way. Left
    it in the proper orientation and tried two other
    floppy drives, so it can't be the drive itself.
    And it's alligned with the FDD controller. Which
    I uninstalled and replaced with a fesh copy......
    ..... nuttin'

    Any ideas ?
    TIA
    :confused:

    Hi DB- I'm sure you have tried a different floppy cable....
    Is the connector on the pins right...not meaning pin1 arrangement, but is it off a set of pins- I've put them on off a set of pins once...easy to do.
    Next- is there anything inside the floppy? I have found the following inside a drive- a photo
    a mini-CD disc

    Is the BIOS setting for Drive A= 1.44mb floppy
