Hidden Floppy drive on windows 2000 Machine

I don't know what my previous administrator did but Floppy drive is hidden on all the PC's.The client OS is windows 2000 and server is windows 2003. We have default group policy  in which Hide the following drives have been enabled which are M,N and O. But "A" drive isn't hidden ,but for some reason I can't see A drive but can access it.When I don't apply this group policy I can see the A drive.Any ideas why this would be happening.

are these the policies you have configured?

No I didn't configure any thing.

We have custom policy under

Administrative Templates\company name\windows explorer  Hide these specified drives in My Computer

Drives:M,N and O are only disabled

hmm if its  custom policy you may need to explicitly deny the hiding of that drive - depends how it was written
