Default Floppy disk failure

When I boot up a computer sometimes it says "Error: (50) Floppy disk fail" or something along those lines. I don't have access at the time of this post to the computer however so I can't verify that error. Does anyone know why this is happening. I have 3.5" and a 5.25" floppy drive in it I don't know which it is.

pull out one at a time and see which one does it. SOunds like one of them is either bad, or not plugged in all the way...

Well, ive actually unplugged 3.5" and it didn't display the error. I've found out that it had a bent pin and so the cable wasn't connected to that pin...etc
