Default Floppy Drive

My OS Vista. Intel D945PLNM Mobo, Intel Pentium D 915 2.80GHz CPU. All of a sudden the Floppy Drive quit working. It is listed as working properl in Device Manager. When I insert a disk in it saya to insert disk. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Like all drives, they can go bad.

A new one won't cost that much, afaik.

Also, unless you need it for RAID drivers via onboard floppy - you should be able to get away with USB Floppy or even a USB flashdrive for those RAID drivers.
