My A: drive is not responding?

It worked a few days ago and now even the little green LED does not turn on. This is what it says "A: not accessible device not ready".  I removed it to blow out all the dust but no change.  How do I know it really needs to be replaced or is it something else.  Please help.

If the led does not light first check power cable. they can come undone every now and again. Then remove and reinstall the data cable but after that you will need another drive to continue. Locate spare drive then install it if it works your drive is bad. You should be able to replace a floppy for around $25.00 thats not bad to get computer back up.
