BIOS recognizes the floppy drive as does XP. But the light on the drive is always on. And with or without a floppy, XP will always prompt you to put a floppy in.
Anyway, the cable and ps are hooked up to the floppy. I have tried various setups in bios for the floppy with no success.
Pleasa helpa me!

Turn the floppy cable around and retest, The floppy LED always being on is indicative of a backward cable.

I, experienced this same prob.recently, on my first pc build.thought i had fouled something .as rookies usually will,but turned out that ,the floppy mfr. did not have ,the typical notch,to orient cable,on drive. a local tech ,found the fault quick and,as a reseller he said,this is not uncommon.
