Unable to access floppy drive
Posted on 2003-03-03
I didn't know if I should have put this question in hardware or here but since what I want to know is if Windows is able to see floppy drives when the "gray cable" is not properly functionning, I thought I would post this here.
So, my problem is that in Windows 2000 sp3, I can see both my floppy drives but neither of them are accessible. No error messages except something along the line of "please insert a disk in drive". Both drives were working fine in Windows 98 until I upgraded to Windows 2000. Everything in the BIOS is fine so my last guess on that problem is that the said "gray cable" just doesn't work anymore, hence my question, is it possible to see floppy drives even if the cable is not working properly.
I know the question is not quite clear but any thoughts (and questions) on this would be appreciated.
