Go into device manager (right click on my computer, hit properties) and remove the listing for the 5 1/4 inch floppy drive. Restart, and see if it detects it correctly.

hmm

well, something simple that has worked for me every single time, is to go into the bios configuration screen and set it to the correct drive type, then save settings and exit.

if you don't have a clue what bios is, get rid of your machine, and by a pen and paper.

maybe its my imagination, but i don't see where that would elude the average User.......

well, if you remove the battery, most of your settings in bios might revert to default. If you decide to try and go with the battery theory, make sure to take a note of what your bios settings are right now so you can set them back up if you need to.

lol, Bob seems to be on a roll !!!
