View Full Version : Floppy drive error.

My grandson, I think, has beggered the floppy drive on his PC.

When trying to use the floppy, we get an 'error 40' message and will not read the disk. When closing down the PC, the floppy light comes on indicating at least the system does check the floppy and there is power to the unit.

Anyone got any ideas?

It's probably the actual floppy disk that is destroyed. Please give the exact error message

Confirmed. Error 40 is an error with the disk itself.
