    Default A:\is not accessible

    My floppy drive is suddenly unaccessible.
    The error message said: The system cannot read front the specifier device.
    I went into Manager
    Device-Disk Controller-Properties to update drive ,and location the dive in C:\windows\inf\msfdc.inf.
    Then I had updated it but it still did not work.
    Can anyone help me please.
    Thank you.

    Have you installed any prgrammes lately? and have you had your case of recently? also...how old is the computer? sometimes they just die. And perhaps the plug might not be in properly...sometimes they fall out but not very often. IDE cables are best at falling out.

    The A:\ drive is detected in the starting up of the computer. All cables are installed correctly and no new programmes have been installed apart from 'CLONECD' which should not be affected by A:\. Please what should I do?
    Thankyou.

    Is it *one* floppy or all? Sometimes you get a bad disk. You could try a head cleaning disk.

    Is the computer in a dusty place? Floppy drives are extremely efficient at collecting dust. I have seen them full. They tend to not work when in that condition.
