Check that power connector and cable are not damaged.
Check BIOS settings for FDD controller - so your FDD is enabled and set to correct type (3.5" 1.44 MB assumed).

If this never worked, also check data cable connection so the connectors, or the entire cable aren't reversed.

I'm not quite sure that if it were a power problem it would present an icon in explorer for it.  As well, his system probably would have complained that it couldn't see it at start up.

Did you computer complain about the floppy when you started?

When was the last time you tried using it?

Floppy drives are quite cheap and very easy to install.
