How to get rid of non-existent floppy drive.
Posted on 2000-04-20
I'm running win98 S.E.
Instead of a floppy drive, I have installed a removable LS-120 hard drive
(which looks and acts like a floppy). The system works ok; the problem is, Windows Explorer lists a the top (left pane) a non-existent 5 1/4 floppy drive as drive A:
Since I have two logical drives (C and D), the LS-120 is assigned letter F: (CD ROM gets "G:"); every time I forget and hit the floppy A: icon, Windows doesn't know what to do, it takes forever and finally says something like:
" drive A: inaccessible, .... "
I went to rhe registry and found:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\enum\FLOP, wiht info about this 'floppy A:', is this the place to disable the floppy?, if so, how?. I don't want to mess up my registry.
TIA for any help.
