I need to disable drive "b" (I don't know how it became enabled) and enable drive "a."  When I try to access 'a' drive, it tells me that A: is not accesible and the device is not ready even when I have a disc in, I cannot access my floppy.
I checked the system and it has the "+" beside it so how do I enable it?

Have you looked in the BIOS to enable this.

More info on hardware and bios will help.

Maybe the drive died or you need to check the plugs.
