    Default Help!! Reading 2 Floppy Drives

    Hello tweaktown,
    I am running an old Compaq Deskpro ep series Pc. And when i connect the ONE floppy drive to the m/b and I check the Bios, it reads 2. I'm Running winxp pro
    and under "My Computer" it shows Floppy Drive A and Floppy Drive B. Yet when I try to use either of them I get an error message saying Insert Disk into Drive. Also the floppy working light won't go off. If you can help fix it then let me know or tell me Please its driving me crazy. I can't update bios without the drive. I have also tryed changing cables, drives ect.. Nothing Changes..

    Thanks in advance.

    That almost always indicates the cable is upside down.

    I tryed Flipping the Cable over. and the light went off.. but now it doesnt read anything in the drive menu. and it disable's itself in the bios even though i force the bios to read it as a floppy. the bios keeps saying that it isnt installed.

    Help...

    It is either still not connected properly or you have a faulty cable.
