I have Windows XP and am having trouble accesing my a:/ I had no trouble the day before yesterday and now it seems like its not responding or anything. Usually when it starts up with a disk in it it says non system disk but I dont even get that. Any help would be appreciated.

If someone else has access to your computer they could have changed some settings. Have you tried checking you bios settings to see if the A:\ drive is set to 3.5" 1.44mb, also try checking in your device manager (control panel - system - hardware - devicemanager) to see if there is a conflict with this device

It is possible it just shot craps if the above checks out
