I can live with it, but it's irritating.
Whenever I open a Notepad or Word document, my a: drive kicks in. The drive doesn't actually open. It just chatters for a split second. It only happens if there is text in the document. If I open a new (blank) Notepad or Word document, I don't hear it.
I did another test by saving some notepads to a floppy disk and when I open them in A drive, the noise doesn't happen. The noise also does NOT happen if I leave a floppy disk in the tray.
I don't think it's related to my anti virus program because I've disabled it to test it and it still does it.
It's just weird. Anybody have any ideas?
