I went for years without a floppy drive because the first one in this machine failed. I'm doing a project that requires one so I plunked down some geeda and got another one.
I says that any disk I put in is not formatted and that it can't be formatted when I try. All disks I put in. New. Out of the package I bought today.
Now that I think about it, that's what the old one started doing when I s*$&-canned it. Now I think I have disk controller issues.
I removed the floppy and restarted so window might try to put in groovy new drivers. No luck.
I'm not real crazy about messing with my motherboard drivers but doesn't it sound like I have to? I don't think that this new drive could be bad in exactly the way the old one was.
You know I hate 'moticons but I thought I'd run with the pack for a few minutes.
