My floppy drive reports that there is no disk in drive a. There is a patch on microsoft's site that refers to a winbond i/o problem with compaqs [Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) Article Q301077.] but installing this does not correct the problem. The drive appears to be set up correctly in bios.
The cables also are in the correct order inside the box.
I have seen other reports of this on the net but no solutions.
