Default Floppy Disk Drive Problem

I installed a Starlogic Floppy Drive in place of my non-working floppy drive, and it has power and everything, when i insert a floppy, it just says please insert Disk in Drive A, anyone know what might be the problem ?

Must be a computing error

Either that or a problem with your BIOS settings.
